NHL.com @NHL

COLUMBUS, OHIO -- Kole Sherwood grew up watching the Columbus Blue Jackets. He grew up emulating NHL players on The Chiller’s sheets of ice all around Columbus. So, in a way, he grew up with the game of hockey as it also grew in the city.

And today, he pen to paper on a contract that etched his name into the history of the franchise.

Sherwood signed a three-year, entry level contract with the Blue Jackets, opting to forgo his commitment to Boston University and begin his path to the NHL via the Ontario Hockey League. His OHL rights are owned by the London Knights, and while it’s likely he will play there in the fall, it’s not quite a done deal yet.
