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 was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
