Bluejackets Attendance

Drop in Attendance
It has taken seven losing seasons for the Jackets to enter into this phase and the frustration of being the only franchise never to reach the playoffs has built to intolerable levels both in management's offices and in the stands.
The average attendance at Nationwide Arena fell 1,578 per game, the sharpest decline in the NHL this season.
There were only two sellouts this season, Feb. 2 against Minnesota (4-1 loss) and March 16 against Detroit (4-3 win).
Attendance will be sure to pick up next season if management can deliver on its promises of a fruitful offseason.
