The Columbus Blue Jackets signed center Jack Roslovic to a two-year, $8 million contract extension through the 2023-24 season.

A Columbus native, Roslovic had 45 points (22 goals, 23 assists) in 81 games in the 2021-22 season. Four of those goals were game-winners.

“Jack is an offensively gifted player with great speed and vision who has increased his production each season during his NHL career,” general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said Tuesday in a news release. “He has made great strides in his all-around game, especially during this past season, and we are very pleased that he will continue to be an important part of our team as we move forward.”

Roslovic, 25, was the 25th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft by the Winnipeg Jets, who traded him to Columbus on Jan. 23, 2021.

In 309 career games with the Jets and Blue Jackets, Roslovic has 146 points (60 goals, 86 assists) with 44 penalty minutes. He has set or tied career highs in goals, assists and points in each of his five full NHL seasons.
