Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen, playing in his home arena, was named the MVP by a fan vote after he scored two goals and added two assists.

"I don't know if I really deserved it, but it's pretty cool to be MVP,'' Johansen said, according to The Cleveland Plain Dealer. "We've just been really enjoying every moment of this weekend, and just being in Columbus and in front of our fans and our first game, it really has been a very special weekend and something we'll remember for a long time.''
