Bobrovsky Officially Staying With The Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS, OHIO The Columbus Blue Jackets have re-signed goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky to a two-year contract extension through the 2014-15 National Hockey League season, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.  As is club policy, terms were not disclosed.

“Re-signing Sergei Bobrovsky was a top priority for our organization and once again ownership has given us the resources to build a winning team.  Bob is a terrific player and an outstanding young man with a work ethic that is second to none and was a well-deserved winner of the Vezina Trophy this season as the NHL’s top goaltender,” said Kekalainen. “He was a big part of the progress we made last season and we expect him to play an important role in the growth of our team.  With the signings of Bob and Artem Anisimov, as well as the addition of the players we selected in the draft, we feel very strongly about the direction our organization is headed and we’ll continue to work in the days, weeks and months ahead to move our team forward.”

See-Bee-Jay had a rock solid draft.  Kekalainen did real well at his first draft.  And he re-signed Todd Richards to an extension for further stability.
