Last night, I wrote an article which stated which Columbus Blue Jackets were Restricted Free Agents, and Unrestricted Free Agents. The Blue Jackets General Manager has released five player names, who have been offered deals to remain with the team. The deal specifics will not be released until the players agree, and sign, a contract. Those five players are listed below.
Patrik Laine, who is a right wing for the team.
Alexander Texier, a current center for the team.
Calvin Thurkauf, a good player to keep, as he can jump between a center and left wing.
Jake Bean, a welcome addition to the list, as a defenseman.
Andrew Peeeke, another defenseman.
We also know, from the team directly on NHL.com, that two players will definitely enter Wednesday morning as Unrestricted Free Agents. Kole Sherwood and Cliff Pu, who are both right wingers, currently make up this list. I’ll let you know any other updates as Wednesday grows near!
