Efenseman Scott Harrington includes re-signed using the Columbus Blue Jackets on a three-year deal that runs throughout the 2021-22 season.
Harrington, who had been a restricted free agent, played in 73 games with the Blue Jackets last season and had two goals and a career-best 15 assists.
“Scott Harrington is a really smart, reliable defenseman who made great strides to be a regular contributor on the blueline last year,” said Jarmo Kekalainen, the group’s general director.
“He works very hard and has continued to improve steadily over the past 3 seasons. Scott has shown himself to be a superb leader who gets the respect of his coaches and teammates and we look forward to his continuing contributions to our team .”
Harrington, 26, was initially a second-round draft pick by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2011. He played in 10 games with the Penguins in 2014-15 and 15 with the Toronto Maple Leafs the following season before being acquired by the Blue Jackets in a trade.
He played portions of the past two seasons in Columbus before getting a regular in the 2018-19 season.
Terms of the deal were undisclosed, but reports pegged it worth an yearly average value of $1.633 million per year.
