The 2015 NHL All-Star game will make its long-awaited return at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, the league announced on Saturday.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and Columbus Blue Jackets president John Davidson announced the selection to the Columbus crowd during the Blue Jackets' game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. It's the first time the NHL All-Star Game will come to Columbus, following a recent trend for the league. The event made its first trips to North Carolina in 2011 and Ottawa in 2012.
This isn't the first big NHL event for Columbus, as the Blue Jackets previously hosted the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. The All-Star Game hasn't been held since 2012 due to the NHL lockout and the upcoming Winter Olympics.
The NHL also revealed the official logo for the event:
Not bad at all.
