Columbus Plans For Their Top Players

from the Columbus Dispatch,

Sergei Fedorov will center the Blue Jackets’ first line in the opener between Rick Nash and David Vyborny. Fedorov did not play between the wingers during the preseason.

Hitchcock said Fedorov, 37, earned the right with his performance over the last three exhibition games. The coach said Fedorov will not kill penalties in an effort to limit his minutes.

Nikolai Zherdev will play extensively on the penalty-killing units, Hitchcock said. He believes the winger is a smart player who doesn’t get enough credit for his work on the defensive end. Nash also will be a penalty-killing regular.
