The Columbus Blue Jackets have given defenseman Dalton Prout a two-year contract extension.

A pending restricted free agent prior to signing, Prout played 49 games for the Jackets in 2013-14, scoring twice with four assists. The 24-year-old also spent time with AHL Springfield.

Financial details of the contract have yet to be reported, but it’s apparently a one-way deal.

Prout was a sixth-round pick of the Jackets in 2010.

    Saw him play juniors in Saginaw. Good solid defenseman, who plays with some grit. Great resigning by Columbus.

    Indeed he is, he’s a solid defender who hits very hard and it very physical, what a steal he was too, getting him in the 6th round
