Amidst much offseason trade speculation, Ryan Murray will be in a Columbus Blue Jacket sweater this fall.

The Blue Jackets announced on Monday afternoon that they have re-signed the six-year defenseman to a two-year contract.

The contract will be worth about $4.6 million average annual value, according to Aaron Portzline of The Athletic. 

Murray was set to be an unrestricted free agent during the summer of 2020, so this deal will eat one year into his unrestricted free agency. 

Despite an injury in the late winter took him out for the final 24 games of the regular season and the entire playoffs, Murray set a career-high 28 assists and 29 points during the 2018-2019 regular season.
