The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed defenceman Jake Bean to a three-year extension with an average annual value of $2.33 million, the team announced Thursday.

The signing comes after the Blue Jackets acquired Bean from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for the 44th-overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft.

Bean, 23, has produced one goal and 11 assists in 44 career NHL games. The Hurricanes selected the six-foot-one Calgary native 13th overall in the 2016 NHL Draft.
