NHL Rumors: Columbus Blue Jackets, and the Colorado Avalanche

Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch: The Columbus Blue Jackets will likely be looking at adding a centerman this offseason, but they aren’t easy to come by.

“Our center ice position has always been talked about,” coach John Tortorella said last month, when asked during a season-ending conference call what areas he would like to upgrade this offseason. “You just don’t find center-ice men in the league (via free agency). Everybody’s looking for those guys.”

They could use a second-line center to go between Pierre-Luc Dubois and Boone Jenner.
