Columbus GM Jarkko Kekalainen says he was very pleased with the play of Thomas Vanek since he was acquired at the trade deadline from Vancouver.
The Blue Jackets needed to get some scoring at the deadline and settled on Vanek, giving up little in the way of Tyler Motte and Jussi Jokinen. "I think Thomas Vanek did a great job for us, as far as adding some scoring ... we needed another NHL veteran to (put) into the lineup, rather than going to the inexperienced guys we had on our depth chart there, further and further down," Kekalainen said. "He did the job that we expected him to do when we traded for him, and we’re extremely grateful for that, appreciative, and I told him that." Vanek had seven goals and 15 points in 19 games with Columbus, giving the Jackets the extra scoring they were looking for down the stretch. Vanek is a UFA and should hit the open market on July 1. May 7 - 6:23 AM
