The 23-year-old Goloubef has appeared in nine games with Columbus this season. He scored his first career NHL goal on Feb. 11 vs. San Jose.
The Blue Jackets' second pick, 37th overall, in the 2008 draft, Goloubef came to the big team when several blueliners were out with injury and played well. He has 11 goals and 29 assists in 122 career AHL games, including five goals and six assists in 24 games with Springfield this season.
He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
