Blue Jackets, Sergei Bobrovsky agree to new deal
The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky to a new two-year deal, the team announced on Monday. He will be paid $6 million a year, according to reports.
Bobrovsky, 24, went 21-11-6 with a .932 save percentage last season. He had a goals against average of 2.00. Columbus fell one point short of a playoff bid last season.
The Russian goaltender was traded to Columbus by the Flyers last summer after playing in 83 games over two seasons with Philadelphia.
Bobrobvsky’s deal with CBJ has an AAV of just a shade under $6M. It’s a two year deal.
