Blue Jackets re-sign Alexander Wennberg

The Blue Jackets have re-signed restricted free agent Alexander Wennberg to a 6 year $29.4M deal.




The deal averages out to $4.9M per season. This is a fantastic deal for the Blue Jackets and clearly waiting all summer to get this done paid off for the team. Wennberg had a breakout season offensively this past season putting up 59 points in 80 games. Wennberg is the top centre on this team, but still has some way to go to becoming a top end centre in the league.



This is why Wennberg’s signed for the dollars that he did. Wennberg clearly has the potential to join that class of elite level centres but he isn’t quite there yet. This deal stacks up very well to other talented young players, like Jonathan Drouin and Sean Couturier.




If Wennberg reaches his potential and is a consistent 60+ point scorer this deal is going to be an absolute steal. Centres are at a premium in the NHL today, look at what Ryan Johansen and Leon Draisaitl just signed for. Centres cost big bucks and the Jackets are very fortunate to get Wennberg on the deal they did.

With this deal the Jackets now have $7.98M in cap space and only have Josh Anderson to sign.




With Wennberg now inked I would expect Anderson’s deal to get done very soon.
