COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Center Kris Beech signed a one-year contract Tuesday with the Columbus Blue Jackets after totaling a career-high 26 points with the Washington Capitals last season.
The 26-year-old Beech had eight goals and 18 assists in 64 games last season with Washington.
He has 19 goals and 37 assists in 173 career games with Washington, Nashville and Pittsburgh. He was the Capitals' first pick, seventh overall, in the 1999 NHL draft.
Beech was traded to Pittsburgh in the 2001 deal that sent Jaromir Jagr to the Capitals.
