NHL BLUE JACKETS SEE NEXT TWELVE MONTHS AS "CRITICAL"
Published January 6, 1998
The NHL Blue Jackets are trying to "secure a deal" with IHL Columbus Chill Owner Horn Chen to "become part" of its investment group, according to Craig Merz of the COLUMBUS DISPATCH. The Blue Jackets "are working to bring Chen into the fold," and a deal with Chen "may mean" the Blue Jackets will "own the Chill, which will move to another city, and Chen's Indianapolis IHL team" (COLUMBUS DISPATCH, 1/4).
