COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -The Columbus Blue Jackets signed defenseman Jan Hejda to a three-year contract, bringing back a player who was one of their best finds a year ago.
Terms of the deal announced Tuesday were not disclosed.
The 29-year-old Hejda is coming off a solid season. An unrestricted free agent signed to a one-year deal last summer, he had 13 assists in 81 games and set a franchise record with a plus-20 plus-minus rating. No Blue Jackets player had been better than plus-13 before in the club's seven seasons.
