The 2010–11 Columbus Blue Jackets season was the 11th season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on June 25, 1997.[1]

The Blue Jackets posted a regular season record of 34 wins, 35 losses, and 13 overtime/shootout losses for 81 points, failing to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs for the second consecutive season.

Off-season

On June 8, 2010, the Blue Jackets announced their new head coach Scott Arniel, who was previously the head coach of the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League.[2]

On June 17, the Blue Jackets announced their 2010 pre-season schedule. The team will play nine games during the pre-season, including one against a Swedish team, the Malmö Redhawks. The game was originally to feature a combined squad featuring players from Malmö and Rogle BK, but these plans fell through as the archrival clubs did not feel that they could compete as a unit.[3]
