Oct 3 - 4:23 AM

The Columbus Blue Jackets have reportedly signed Josh Anderson to a three-year deal worth a total of $5.55 million.

The $1.85 million cap hit seems like a good deal for Columbus. Anderson, who was a restricted free agent, held out for all of training camp. The 23-year-old had 17 goals, 29 points and 89 penalty minutes in 78 games with the Blue Jackets last season. There were rumblings about him wanting out of Columbus, but the Jackets did well to wait him out. It'll be interesting to see how long it takes for him to get in game shape. He'll only have fantasy value in leagues that award points for penalty minutes.

The two are reportedly just $150,000 apart on a three-year contract, but are unwilling to bridge the gap on principle. Anderson had 17 goals and 29 points in 78 games last season.

At this point even if the dispute is resolved, missing so much of training camp might hinder him in the early portion of the campaign. He had 17 goals and 29 points in 78 contests last season.
