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.
