Columbus Blue Jackets: Aircraft issues cause delay in flight to Detroit, Michigan

DETROIT — The Blue Jackets flew to Detroit on Saturday morning because of mechanical issues with their airplane after Friday night’s home game.

The team’s plane was preparing for takeoff when the decision not to fly was made. The change of plans was helpful, if anything, forwards Nick Foligno and Cam Atkinson said.

“It changes up the routine a little bit,” Atkinson said. “I think it’s good for the team.”

The Jackets had a flight from Carolina to Chicago grounded last season. Before flying charter, the Jackets used to have their own private plane.

“Never had an issue with that old bird,” Foligno said. “Scared the hell out of you, but it was Mr. Reliable.”
