Jackets Sign Two

The Columbus Blue Jackets signed two players to 1-year, two-way deals on Friday. Both forward Mike York and defenseman Aaron Rome signed deals with the Ohio team.

York, the more likely of the two to stay with the team, will earn $750,000 with the big club this season and far less in the minors. York played in 63 games last season for the Phoenix Coyotes, scoring 6 goals and 8 assists. As of right now, he'll figure into the side, but his production has dropped off pretty far that he will be on thin ice. He's not the pool candidate that he once was, so you may want to skip over him come draft day.

Rome, 24, a minor league defenseman, had 2 points in 17 games with Blue Jackets last season.
