Now that Columbus’ Sergei Bobrovsky is a Vezina Trophy winner, the game really begins to get him signed.

Blue Jackets president of hockey operations John Davidson knows all about the KHL’s desire to sign Bobrovsky but believes he’ll be able to keep him Columbus. Michael Arace of The Columbus Dispatch shares.

“We’ll look at all the different options — short-term, long-term, arbitration … who knows?” Davidson said. “We think we’ll get him signed.”

During the NHL Awards press conference, Bobrovsky was asked about where negotiations were. He wasn’t exactly in the mood to discuss the business side of hockey.

“Right now is the moment to celebrate, and later we will sit down with my agent and think about our next steps,” he said.

Ominously, when asked about if there’s a chance he could sign to play in the KHL he said, “We’ll see.”

Columbus wasn’t planning on looking for goaltending help this summer but they may have to make room for Plan B.
