The team at FTC is proud to announce that Eric Smith and Rob Ogden have decided to join our team. Eric Smith has been a hockey fan his entire life.  His roots for the game come from Fort Wayne where the Komets of the IHL play. They are the most successful minor league hockey program in the U.S. drawing on average of over 10,000 people. Later on he moved to the Columbus region and the Blue Jackets opened up shop, Eric’s passion for the sport as well as the NHL grew even more. 

He is now credentialed by the Blue Jackets and has been covering the team and continues to do so for  since 2007. He has gone to develop some great relationships with the team including front office, coaches and players. 

Mr. Rob Ogden is a local boy from Columbus Ohio, he backs a sports journalism major from Ohio University. He has followed the Blue Jackets since their inception in the league and has been an avid hockey fan ever since.

Nothing like having a hometown boy and someone of Eric’s stature join our team. Look for them to start posting articles in the near future.
