COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets re-signed restricted free-agent forward Artem Anisimov to a three-year contract Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
