Ryan Johansen and Seth Jones meet at Columbus airport after being traded for one another

What a small world.

Imagine you just got traded from your NHL team, you get off the plane in your new city and immediately run into the player you were swapped for.

Such was the life of Seth Jones last night when he landed in Columbus after being acquired by the Blue Jackets. Ryan Johansen was waiting for his flight to Nashville.

Ran into my good buddy jonesy at the airport last night.

Ok, it probably wasn't immediately, and may not have even been happenstance. The two friends shared a laugh and snapped a picture, but it's hard to imagine it wasn't at least a little awkward for a second. But hey, Joey got a place to stay out of it:

Hockey is the best.
