  • Atkinson is a class act

    And as the most dedicated Columbus hockey fans sat outside last night waiting for the box office to open, Atkinson’s girlfriend noticed what was happening at the arena on Twitter. She told Atkinson about the gathering and, well, he surprised them.

    Nine people were in line when Atkinson showed up with his dad to say hi to the fans at about 10 last night. He withdrew money from an ATM and gave each of the fans $40 for a ticket.

    He also gave one of his practice sticks to Grant Flood, who was proudly displaying it this morning.

    When Atkinson arrived, “we were all in a state of shock,” said Flood, 28, of Upper Arlington.

    In a still-budding market with all sorts of potential, that kind of connection at such an exciting part of the schedule will do wonders to spark a deeper passion.

    Hockey players continue to be awesome. ... ide-arena/
