With the Columbus Blue Jackets sitting 11 points out of a playoff spot today’s NHL rumors have the Columbus Blue Jackets shopping forward Jack Roslovic.
Frank Seravalli of The Daily Faceoff reports Roslovic’s name may surprise some people that he is available, but he has underachieved and the Blue Jackets would rather trade him for some assets than re-sign him.
Seravalli went on to say, with Roslovic having 16 points in 35 games and his ice-time is down dramatically from last year – from 16:54 to 12:20 a game. This is a tell-tale sign that the Blue Jackets are not pleased with Roslovic and a change of scenery might do him well.
Roslovic, 24, is a pending RFA, $1.838 million AAV ($2.21 mil. minimum qualifying offer). There is no word yet on what teams are interested in a Roslovic trade.
