A Two-Year Contract Extension For Boone Jenner

COLUMBUS, OHIO -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed forward Boone Jenner to a two-year contract extension through the 2017-18 National Hockey League season, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today. As is club policy, terms were not disclosed.

Jenner, 22, has set career highs in goals, assists (tied) and points this season with 22 goals and 13 assists for 35 points to go along with 65 penalty minutes in 63 games. He ranks second on the club in goals, power play goals (seven), game-winning goals (two, tied), shots (174) and hits (167), while ranking third in penalty minutes (tied) and fifth in points. One of the club’s alternate captains, he is one of three Blue Jackets – Ryan Murray and Gregory Campbell – that have played in all 63 games this season.

“Boone Jenner is a terrific young player, who works extremely hard at both ends of the ice and is just beginning to scratch the surface of what he can be as a National Hockey League player,” said Kekalainen. “He has tremendous character and is an exemplary representative of our club on and off the ice.”

Video- Boone Jenner Hit On Evgeni Malkin

from Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch,

At 7:03 of the second, Jenner and Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin made partial contact with their legs as they crossed paths high in the Blue Jackets’ zone. Jenner kept his feet, but Malkin hit the ice and writhed in pain, his head wrenched back and his arms clutching his left knee in agony. A dust-up ensued.

Replays showed Jenner did not extend his left knee to catch Malkin. To the contrary, he turned slightly to his right and appeared to stick out his left shoulder in anticipation of a hit that never came. Their legs brushed as they passed, with the side of Jenner's left leg brushing the lower part of Malkin's left leg.

A few seconds later, Malkin was up and skating under his own power. He returned to take a dramatic test-drive near the end of a TV timeout amid cheers of "Geno!" He finished the game, and was the best player on the ice.

Tortorella was incredulous when a Pittsburgh reporter asked him post-game if he anticipated any further discipline for Jenner from the NHL.

“(Malkin) got up, didn’t he?” Tortorella said. “It’s like he was dead, and then he was out the next shift.”

Tortorella stopped short of saying Malkin was faking it. Asked if he was surprised that Malkin, given his initial response, was able to return to the game and dominate, Jenner said: "I don't think (the hit) was too hard."

Video- Should’ve This Goal By Boone Jenner Been Challenged?

from Rich Chere of NJ.com,

It seemed Hynes might challenge the third period goal from Columbus Blue Jackets center Boone Jenner in the third period Tuesday night. Jenner pushed Devils defenseman Jon Merrill into goalie Cory Schneider before getting into position to score on the rebound of a David Clarkson tip of a shot from the right point....

Was Schneider able to get reset?

"Not really. I was pushed back pretty far and I was kind of scrambling out. Jonny said the same thing. He sort of got knocked back," Schneider recalled. "All of a sudden we both looked up and the puck was on its way. I don't think either of us was really set.

"That's a tough one to review. There's a battle in front. If it's pretty blatant and he shoves him into me and knocks me over and I'm cleaned out, obviously that's a call. But it was probably incidental. The coaches and the guys upstairs know whether or not to challenge it and they didn't so it is what it is."

IMO, Schneider did have enough time to recover, you can watch the goal below...

Canada’s Jenner May Face Suspension For Hit In WJC Pre-Tournament Game

from Mark Masters of TSN,

The Canadian centre was assessed a major charging penalty and a game misconduct for a hit on Jesper Pettersson in the second period of Saturday's exhibition game against Sweden. Pettersson, a defenceman who plays for Linkopings HC in the Swedish Elite League, was stretchered off the ice and could be heard yelling in agony as he was loaded into an ambulance and left the Helsinki Ice Hall. Pettersson sustained a shoulder injury and will miss the world junior championship.   

"It happened pretty fast," Jenner said after Canada's 2-1 shootout win. "I was just in on the forecheck, forechecking hard, just trying to finish my check and thought I made sure my arm and my shoulder were down so I thought it was a clean hit."

It's possible Jenner, one of six returning players on the Canadian roster, will face supplemental discipline from the IIHF.

"That's kind of out of my control now," said Jenner, a Columbus Blue Jackets prospect, who plays for the OHL's Oshawa Generals. "Like I said, I thought it was a clean hit."

Canadian head coach Steve Spott certainly doesn't think his third-line centre should face further sanctions.
