The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed goalie Curtis McElhinney to a one-year contract extension.
McElhinney went 10-11-1 for C-bus last season, with a 2.70 goals-against average and .909 save percentage. The 31-year-old was a pending unrestricted free agent after making $600,000 to back up Sergei Bobrovsky in 2013-14.
According to the Globe and Mail’s James Mirtle, the McElhinney signing leaves nine NHL teams without a back-up under contract for next season.
