Brandon Saad is ready to get back to work after a disappointing season.

Saad's individual numbers were fine during his first year in Columbus, but as a team, the Blue Jackets struggled badly. "It’s been a much longer offseason," Saad said. "Watching the playoffs, you want to be out there playing. But at the same time, you just have to take that time to relax, recover and enjoy the family. Now I’m definitely looking forward to getting back at it." The 23-year-old scored 31 goals and 53 points in 78 games last season.
