OKT means 55 to go

Number 55, Ole-Kristian Tollefsen is the next former Blue Jacket on the “Jersey Countdown to Puck Drop 2010”.

Tollefsen was drafted by the Blue Jackets in the 3rd round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. “Tollie” ended up playing in parts of the 05-06, 06-07, 07-08, and 08-09 seasons with the Jackets. While in Columbus Tollie was a feisty fellow, and tried to make an impression during training camp in 2003 when he injured (almost CBJ Legend) Geoff Sanderson, for an extended period of time.

After 151 games in his time with the Jackets, OKT moved on to play with the Philadelphia Flyers and had a brief stint with Detroit’s AHL team, the Grand Rapids Griffins. While with Philly, distinctly OKT soured his image to me as he was running around like tool bag trying to injure someone from the CBJ, probably sour grapes that he wasn’t re-signed after the 08-09 season.

Cannonfest is TOMORROW. Be there or be square. Seriously. I’ll take any excuse to put on a hockey sweater in the middle of August. Maybe the Jackets will have traded for Kaberle by then? Wouldn’t that be exciting?

The Green Seat View continues to look at the goaltenders of the Central Division.

Besides DBJ, The Cannon also wants you to go to Cannonfest too. Plus their usual link-dump.

Speaking of DBJ, he speculates that these could be the base of the CBJ’s new uni’s.

Sooooooo, 55 days to go, come to Cannonfest tomorrow.

Go Jackets.
