Dubinsky Earns Extension in Columbus
The Columbus Blue Jackets appear to be keen on keeping this core group of players together for the foreseeable future. On Friday, the Jackets gave forward Brandon Dubinsky a new 6-year contract extension, which will carry an annual cap hit of $5.85 million per year. Dubinsky joined the Jackets from the Rangers before the 2013 season in a deal which shaped the team greatly and he has done well in his time in Columbus. In the 2014 season, Dubinsky had 16 goals and 50 points in 76 games and helped the team into the playoffs and a great series against the Penguins. It is an awfully long extension, but if he can keep up that sort of production, it should be a good deal.
