From Aaron Portzline via Twitter:
Dispatch: #CBJ sign veteran D Radek Martinek to a one-year $2.2 million contract.
Update 2:56pm ET: Thoughts from Spector’s Hockey —
The Jackets were reportedly in the market for another veteran blueliner. Martinek, despite his injury history, is a steady, defensive-minded blueliner. Not a bad addition for the Jackets.
Update 3:35pm ET: From Aaron Portzline at Puck-Rakers Blog—
“For our purposes, it was the concussion (we looked at closely),” Howson said. “He played since the knee injury and with no problems, but the concussion was a concern. We wanted to make sure he was fully recovered from the concussion and our doctors took a close look at him over two days. They were convinced that he’s recovered.
“We know what his history is. It’s because of the way he plays. He plays hard; he’s competitive. His injury history would indicate he’s a 60- to 70-game player, and we’re OK with that.”
