Bean scored his first NHL goal and added 11 assists in 42 games as a rookie with the Hurricanes this past season.
The 23-year-old is a pending restricted free agent who was recently left exposed in the Seattle Kraken expansion draft.
Columbus’s blue line is going to look quite different in 2021-22 than it did this past season.
Earlier on Friday the Blue Jackets traded Seth Jones to the Chicago Blackhawks for fellow defenceman Adam Boqvist plus a handful of picks, including the 44th-overall selection in Friday's draft which they then flipped to Carolina for Bean.
Selected 13th overall by the Hurricanes in 2016, the Calgary native has put up strong offensive numbers from the back end throughout his career.
He led the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers in scoring with 48 points in 59 games during the 2019-20 campaign.
