Jackets re-sign Goloubef to one-year, two-way deal

Jul 25, 2013, 9:02 PM EDT


The Columbus Blue Jackets have agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with defenseman Cody Goloubef, the club announced on Thursday.

Goloubef, 23, appeared in 11 games with the Blue Jackets in 2013, having made his NHL debut in 2011-12.

A former University of Wisconsin standout that played alongside new Jackets scout Blake Geoffrion with the Badgers, Goloubef was taken in the second round (37th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, one spot ahead of Nashville’s Roman Josi (who, earlier this summer, inked a seven-year, $28 million extension with the Preds.)

Goloubef has spent most of his professional career with Columbus’ AHL affiliate in Springfield. He’ll have a decent shot of making the Jackets’ roster next season, as the club currently has just seven defensemen under contract and don’t appear primed to bring back veteran Adrian Aucoin, who is still an unrestricted free agent.

    Jackets are smart for continuing to keep a solid amount of depth on defense.

    Cool move. I like Cody, he’s a very good two-way defender who could provide some offensive punch.
