COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed forward Blake Comeau to a one-year contract extension through next season.
The 27-year-old Comeau was acquired on April 3 from Calgary for a fifth-round pick in Sunday's draft. He totaled six goals and six assists in 42 games during the season, including two goals and three assists and a plus-5 rating in nine games with the Blue Jackets.
