Boll receives two-year deal from Blue Jackets
Rugged forward Jared Boll, who has led Columbus in penalty minutes in each of his three NHL seasons, re-signed with the Blue Jackets for two years.
The Columbus Blue Jackets retained some of their snarl up front, agreeing to a new two-year contract Tuesday with forward Jared Boll.

A fourth-round pick of the team in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, the 24-year-old Boll completed his third season with the Blue Jackets in 2009-10 by recording 4 goals, 7 points and 149 penalty minutes in 68 games.

"We are very pleased to complete this two-year deal with Jared," General Manager Scott Howson said. "He has proven to be a great teammate in his three years in Columbus and we look forward to seeing him continue to grow as a player."

Boll has led the team in penalty minutes in each of his three seasons, including a career-high 226 as a rookie. In his sophomore season, he registered a career-high 14 points (4 goals, 10 assists). In 218 career games, Boll has totals of 13 goals, 31 points and 555 penalty minutes.
Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
