Of all the players called up last season when the Columbus Blue Jackets were decimated by injuries, no one stood out more than Kevin Stenlund.
Today, the organization rewarded his impressive play with a one-year, two-way contract extension.
Stenlund, 24, scored six goals and added four assists for a total of ten points in his 32 games with the Blue Jackets this season. Over an 82 game period, this would have been 15-26-41.
The 6'4", 210lb native of Stockholm, Sweden will likely see ice time with both the Blue Jackets and the Cleveland Monsters of the AHL this season. Stenlund has 21 goals and 24 assists in 99 career games with the Monsters.
