NHL Rumors: Blue Jackets and Mike Hoffman inching closer to a deal? Capitals looking to salary dump, and more

The Columbus Blue Jackets need more offensive help even after acquiring Max Domi for Josh Anderson this offseason. The loss of Gustav Nyquist to shoulder surgery is painful for a team that needs every goal they can get.

NHL Rumors: Blue Jackets after Mike Hoffman

The Jackets have $9.2 million in cap space which should give GM Jarmo Kekalainen enough to work with. His main priority is to sign RFA Pierre-Luc Dubois but he also is closing in on Mike Hoffman.

Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman believes that either Hoffman or Granlund will be a Jacket soon.
