Leo Welsh is the Jackets' National Anthem singer.

• Welsh to sing 'Oh, Canada'
St. Clairsville native Leo Welsh will be singing the Canadian National Anthem, "Oh, Canada" prior to the dropping of the puck inside Nationwide Arena in downtown Columbus. The NHL formally announced the Anthem singers on Friday, but Welsh, who is the Blue Jackets' primary Anthem singer, actually knew a month ago that he'd have the opportunity. Welsh had a good feeling he'd be part of the festivities tonight. He'd been paying close attention to past NHL All-Star Games and found that the host team's main singer usually played a role. "It's been basically a standard policy that the house singer sings the first Anthem," Welsh said during a phone interview. "The last all-star game was three years ago in Ottawa and the house singer sang the United States National Anthem." Welsh and the two Canadian Mounties met for a rehearsal Saturday. It'll be the first time that Welsh has sang on the ice with another person(s). "It'll be a little bit different, but I've sung in choirs my whole life, so I am used to harmonization," Welsh said. "It won't be a huge change for me." Another change, but only a minor one, is that Welsh and the Canadian Mounties will be singing 'Oh, Canada' bilingually . The song will begin in English, shift to French and then finish in English. Nerves won't be a factor tonight for Welsh. Basically, it's just another day at the office. "I don't get nervous about singing in front of people, but I do get nervous over things I can't control," Welsh admitted. "If I have a cold or a voice crack that I can't control ... that makes me nervous, but people don't bother me." Welsh started singing the National Anthem at Blue Jacket games in 2003. He actually shared the duty with Livy Turnow. She's since moved, and Welsh has been the full-time singer since 2006. Welsh moved to Columbus to pursue a career with the Columbus Opera upon his graduation from Ohio University and then landed the opportunity with the Blue Jackets. Growing up in the Ohio Valley, Welsh was a Penguins fan before the Blue Jackets arrived on the scene in 2000. The two franchises clashed in the opening round of the 2014 playoffs with Pittsburgh eventually eventually eliminating the Jackets in seven games. Welsh's loyalty wasn't in question. "I definitely grew up cheering for Mario Lemieux and the Pens because watching him and those other guys score all those goals made hockey easy to learn," Welsh joked. "But, now, I am all in for the Blue Jackets. It was an easy transition." Along with singing for the Blue Jackets' home schedule, Welsh sang the National Anthem at a Reds and Indians game, on back-to-back days last summer. He also sang for a Nationwide Race at the Kentucky Motor Speedway. "I met a guy from the Tribe at a Blue Jackets' game and the people at speedway were Jacket fans and contacted me personally," Welsh said. Welsh also had the opportunity to sing the National Anthem prior to his alma mater's opening-round playoff game against Coshocton in November at Red Devil Stadium. "I am not sure I've had bigger goose bumps than I did singing at St. Clairsville," Welsh said. "I have never sung as loud as I did that day. It was just a real treat and honor to get to do something I really love to do at a place I love being." Singing isn't just a hobby for Welsh. It's his livelihood. The owner of a music degree from Ohio. Welsh has been a member of the Columbus Opera Company and is currently in rehearsals for his role in Marriage of Figaro. His role in that, which begins in March, may cause him to miss a few Blue Jacket dates, but that's not totally out of the ordinary. "I miss a game every once in a while," Welsh explained. "When I got married it was December, so I missed a few games for our honeymoon and different things have come up, but most nights I am there." Leo and his wife, Lisa, who is a native of Hilliard, have three sons, Kevin (5), Kane (3) and Cameron (4 mo.).

COLUMBUS (AP) -- When the lights began flickering during another bout of thunderstorms, Leo Welsh braced himself for his second power outage in three days and decided there was no point in getting upset.
The first outage at his Columbus home followed winds of up to 80 mph on Friday. While other Ohio residents were told they might be in the dark for days, Welsh's outage lasted about 20 hours. On Sunday, the second round of storms knocked out the lights throughout his neighborhood, including the ones that had remained on at the house next door, and Welsh figured it must be his turn to wait. So he packed the food from his refrigerator -- plus the food his mother-in-law had brought over when her power went out -- carted it to his brother's place in Grandview and patiently addressed his 3-year-old son's questions about when someone might be coming by to fix the TV. "Getting worked up about it is not going to make the power come on any sooner," said Welsh, a nursing home administrator. Still, he was repeatedly dialing home on Monday, hoping to hear the sweet sound of the answering machine indicating his electricity was restored.
