Maintaining an NHL arena is no small feat. Most modern facilities start showing their age after about 25 years, and Nationwide Arena is no exception. To keep it in good shape, the Columbus Blue Jackets need some serious repairs.

The Hockey News broke down some of the key repairs:
Roof - $9 million
Cooling Towers - $7.5 million
New Scoreboard - $8.5 million
Fire Alarm replacement - $2.5 million
Suite renovations - $1 million
Club Level renovations - $1.7 million
Concession stand overhaul - $1.5 million
Party Tower LED improvements - $675k

The good news is that the cost won't fall entirely on the Blue Jackets, since multiple teams use the arena.
Nationwide Arena and convention center need $170 million in upgrades, owner says

The repairs must happen quickly to keep the arena in top shape for Blue Jackets fans and players. Yet if you're thinking of a potential arena move if this goes south, stop. In 2013, the boys in blue agreed to stay in Columbus and call this place home until at least 2039 or face $36 million in damages. They've been there since inception in 2000 and will remain for the long haul.
