Blue Jackets sign Caloun, Nummelin
The Columbus Blue Jackets have agreed to contact terms with right winger Jan Caloun and defenceman Petteri Nummelin.
Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
Caloun and a ninth-round pick in this year's entry draft were acquired in June from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for future considerations.
The Blue Jackets selected Czech forward Martin Paroulek with the draft pick.
Caloun, 27, was San Jose's fourth choice and the 75th player taken overall in the 1992 expansion draft.
He played for HIFK Helsinki in the Finnish League the last three seasons. He was second in that league in scoring last year with 72 points in 44 games.
Nummelin, 27, was Columbus' third pick in the entry draft and the 133rd player selected overall. He is the first player selected by the NHL expansion team in this year's entry draft to sign with the club.
He has spent the last three seasons with HC Davos in Switzerland and had 15 goals and 38 points for them in 40 games last year.
The Finnish native played for Finland at the 2000 world championships and was selected as the tournament's best defenceman.
