The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed free agent forward Sam Gagner to a one year, 650 thousand dollar contract.

He has 124 goals and 228 assists in 615 career games with Philadelphia, Edmonton and Arizona. Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen calls Gagner a "talented, right-handed-shot center" who will add skill and depth to the roster. He was the sixth overall pick in the 2007 draft.
