The Columbus Blue Jackets have now confirmed they signed forward Jack Skille to a one-year, two-way contract.
The club announced the deal on Sunday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The signing was originally reported on Saturday, as per Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch.
Skille, a former first-round pick of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2005, comes to the Blue Jackets after spending most of the last three seasons with the Florida Panthers.
Last season, he scored three goals and had 12 points in 40 games.
His previous contract with the Panthers – a two-year deal worth $1.65 million – expired, making him a free agent.
