Mikhail Grigorenko signs one-year, $1.2 million deal with Blue Jackets

The deal has long been in the works, but forward Mikhail Grigorenko was finally able to sign a one-year, $1.2 million deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday.

Both parties initially agreed to the deal back in April, but the contract was voided because it did not cover at least the current year (i.e. the 2019-20 season).

Monday marked the first day that Grigorenko was able to sign for next season, which explains the timing of the deal.

Grigorenko, 26, was a first round selection by the Buffalo Sabres in 2012. He has 64 points in 217 NHL games, but has spent the past three seasons in the KHL.

This season, he posted 19 goals and 41 points in 47 games for CSKA Moskva.
