The Columbus Blue Jackets have re-signed All-Star left wing Rick Nash to a five-year contract, club President and General Manager Doug MacLean announced today. As is club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed. "In my opinion, Rick Nash is the best young player in the world and I am thrilled for Rick, our organization and our fans that he is going to remain a Blue Jacket," said MacLean. "At 21 years of age, he has established himself as a true superstar in the game. He is a supremely talented player on the ice and a tremendous person off it. I believe our team is poised to take a major step and Rick is certainly going to play a significant role as our franchise continues to grow."
