Eric Robinson signed a two-year contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday. Financial terms were not released.

The 24-year-old forward, who could have become a restricted free agent July 1, has nine points (five goals, four assists) and is plus-10 in 31 games this season.

"Eric is an exciting young player that has gotten better and better over the past two seasons," Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. "He is a tremendous young man, has game-breaking speed and we believe will be a very good player for us as he continues to work hard and improve his game."

Signed by Columbus as a free agent March 26, 2018, Robinson has nine points in 45 games over the past three seasons.

The Blue Jackets (27-16-8), who have won six straight games, play the Buffalo Sabres at KeyBank Center on Saturday (1 p.m. ET; SN, MSG-B, FS-O, NHL.TV).
