After three eventful seasons in Columbus, Scott Hartnell's time in our fair city has come to an end.

The team announced Thursday afternoon that it will buy out the final two years of Hartnell's contract, making him an unrestricted free agent and available to sign with any other NHL club on July 1.

While a tough decision, the move frees up necessary salary cap room for the Blue Jackets, who want to be aggressive this summer and upgrade their roster. But that's for another story; right here and right now, we're bringing you the best of Hartnell during his stint in Columbus.

Let's start off strong with his hat trick against the Penguins last December:

Speaking of hat tricks, his other Blue Jackets hat trick came against the Anaheim Ducks:

With his parents in town, the Blue Jackets gave Hartnell a nice tribute video for his 1,000th career game milestone.

We won't soon forget this unorthodox assist to Cam Atkinson.

A slap shot breakaway goal? Vintage Hartnell.

Finally, this...this was just lovely. Farewell, Scott Hartnell.
