Jackets sign Travis Zajac

2018-09-19

Today, the Columbus Blue Jackets announced the signing of unrestricted free agent center Travis Zajac to a two year deal worth $11.4M that breaks down to $3.8M per season with $3.8M signing bonus. The deal gives Columbus a two-way pivot to anchor the second line, allows Joe Pavelski to play wing, and significantly bolsters the penalty kill. Zajac joined the Blue Jackets “2016-17 Heart Break in 7” squad as a trade deadline acquisition before departing for Arizona. Management confirmed earlier rumors that Columbus made only one UFA pitch and was lazer focused on Zajac. - “Absolutely, it was Zajac all the way. We’re happy he saw it the same way and look forward helping him get his name on the Toro Cup.”
