Scott Hartnell reportedly hasn't been told of any plans to buy out his contract.
Columbus didn't ask Hartnell to waive his no-movement clause either, so it looks like the Blue Jackets are comfortable using a spot on their protected list on Hartnell. That might be a sign that Columbus and Vegas has already worked out a trade that would guarantee that the Golden Knights are taking a specific player in exchange for some compensation.

Columbus did not ask Scott Hartnell to waive his no-movement clause.

The Blue Jackets may have a deal worked out with the Vegas Golden Knights to keep Josh Anderson from being selected in the expansion draft, but that is unclear at this time. Hartnell still has two more seasons left on his contract at $4.75 million per year.

Although it seemed like the Blue Jackets would be putting the full court press on Scott Hartnell to waive the no-movement clause in his contract, that may not be the case.

Rumor has it that the Jackets have made a side deal with the Vegas Golden Knights that will allow them to protect the players they want to keep most in the upcoming expansion draft without having to move Hartnell. The player Vegas seems to be most interested in and the Jackets want to shield is Josh Anderson. Stay tuned to see if a deal between the clubs is made or whether Hartnell is asked to waive his no-trade provision.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are hoping that veteran Scott Hartnell waives his no-movement clause.

The Blue Jackets want to protect Josh Anderson from the expansion draft and may not be able to do so if Hartnell does not waive his rights. It is unlikely the Vegas Golden Knights would be interested in the 35-year-old but they do need to be within 60 percent of the salary floor after the draft and picking up Hartnell would help that cause. Stay tuned as Hartnell would love to stay in Columbus and chase a Stanley Cup ring. He had only 13 goals and 37 points this season, well down from the 23 goal, 49 point effort of the 2015-16 season.
