The Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday acquired defenseman Jonathan Sigalet from the Boston Bruins in exchange for the rights to left wing Matt Marquardt.
A fourth-round pick of the Bruins in 2005, the 22-year-old Sigalet has appeared in just one NHL game.
In three seasons with the team’s AHL affiliate in Providence, Sigalet appeared in 199 regular-season games, registering 81 points on 21 goals and 60 assists.
Marquardt, 20, split time between Baie-Comeau Drakkar and the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League last season, scoring a combined 43 goals and 26 assists in 68 games.
Bot Thoughts: Marquardt looks like he could be somewhat promising as a goal scorer with 43 goals in 68 games overall. It’s effecient…but it’s also in a Canadian Junior Hockey league. I’m not so sure that’s a lot of competition for the 20-year-old. He’ll have fun in the AHL and maybe one day in the NHL.
