COLUMBUS, OHIO - The Columbus Blue Jackets have bought out the final two years of defenseman Fedor Tyutin’s contract, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today. Tyutin immediately becomes an unrestricted free agent.
“Fedor Tyutin is a pro in every sense of the word and has been an important player for the Columbus Blue Jackets for many years, but this decision is a result of the current depth on our blue line and to add some financial flexibility for our club moving forward,” said Kekalainen. “I want to thank Fedor for his many contributions and wish he, his wife, Sarah, and their family all the best moving forward.”
Tyutin, 32, registered 39 goals and 146 assists for 185 points with 351 penalty minutes in 553 games played with the Blue Jackets, ranking second on the club’s all-time games played list behind Rick Nash (674). Acquired by the club via trade from the New York Rangers on July 2, 2008, he has tallied 54-197-251 and 510 penalty minutes in 803 career NHL games. The Izhevsk, Russia native also appeared in three Olympic Games (2006, 2010, 2014) and won gold medals at the 2008 IIHF World Championships and 2002 and 2003 IIHF World Junior Championships.

COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed defenseman Fedor Tyutin to a six-year contract extension, club Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Scott Howson announced today. As is club policy, terms were not disclosed.
Tyutin, 28, has registered 37 goals and 122 assists for 159 points with 321 penalty minutes in 492 career games with Columbus and the New York Rangers during his seven NHL seasons. He has collected 22-71-93 and 162 penalty minutes in 242 career games with the Blue Jackets, ranking second in club history among defensemen in goals, assists and points and fourth in games played.
“Fedor has been our top defenseman since we acquired him from the New York Rangers in 2008,” said Howson. “We are very pleased get him signed to this long-term deal.”
As the second period of last night’s Sabres/Lightning game was nearing a close, anyone trying to get a jump on writing their game story had to feel pretty good about things.
Captain Vincent Lecavalier was putting together a dominant performance, the Bolts had a two-goal lead, goalie Dwayne Roloson looked sharp and entering the third period with a lead has been a near sure thing for this team, 22-1-1 in such a scenario before last night.
Once Thomas Vanek’s 20th goal of the year cut Tampa Bay’s lead to 3-2 with less than two minutes left in the middle frame, however, a not-so-fast vibe filled the St. Pete Times Forum. That Vanek, a notorious Lightning-killer, started the turn of Buffalo’s tides should be no surprise. That the game got as out of control as it did beyond that, though, should be.
And now, the return of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, with some cameo appearances from other games (so as not to overly depress the Lightning faithful):
