Columbus Blue Jackets Season in Review: Adam Boqvist

One of the key returning pieces in the trade that sent Seth Jones to the Chicago Blackhawks, Boqvist was the 8th overall pick at the 2018 NHL Draft – taken one slot behind Vancouver Canucks star Quinn Hughes. Coming in with really high expectations, Boqvist would spend one post-draft year in the OHL, before turning pro with the Blackhawks in 2019-20.

After two seasons, he was dealt to the Blue Jackets; where he has now spent two full seasons in the NHL. Unfortunately, over those two years, Boqvist has managed to get into only a total of 98 games – seeing both of his seasons cut short due to various injuries.
