Top Prospect Signings (Jul 30)
The Columbus Blue Jackets announced on Monday that they have signed their top pick from the 2018 entry draft, forward Liam Foudy, giving him his 3-year entry-level deal. Foudy was taken with the 18th overall selection after a decent season, numbers-wise, with the OHL's London Knights, picking up 40 points in 65 games with the club. Foudy is listed as a centre and the premium that was put on the pivot position in this draft was pretty high, so the Jackets were able to snag him with their mid-round pick and signing him straight away means that they have some high expectations for him off the hop.
