Columbus Blue Jackets trade college defenceman Olson to Lightning for future considerations

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have traded the rights to defenceman Drew Olson to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for future considerations, general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Olson was Columbus' fourth pick, 118th overall, in the 2008 NHL draft. The Brainerd, Minn., native played four seasons at the University of Minnesota-Duluth from 2009-13, registering three goals and 18 assists for 21 points and 109 penalty minutes in 147 career games.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
