COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -The Columbus Blue Jackets agreed to a one-year contract Monday with defenseman Sheldon Brookbank.

The 26-year-old Brookbank, selected as the American Hockey League's top defenseman last season, scored a career-best 15 goals and had 38 assists in 78 games with the Milwaukee Admirals.

He played three games with the Nashville Predators last season, picking up his only NHL point with an assist against Pittsburgh on Feb. 6. He'll bolster the Blue Jackets' blue line, decimated by injuries a year ago.
