Kevin Stenlund will be in the fold for another year.

Today, the Blue Jackets announced the signing of the Swedish forward to a one-year, one-way contract worth $1.05 million. Aaron Portzline of The Athletic was first with the details of the contract.

Stenlund was the Blue Jackets' second round pick (58th overall) in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, and he became a restricted free agent when his contract expired after the 2020-21 NHL season. He tallied 5-5-10 in 32 games with Columbus this past year while averaging 12:32 of ice time. In 68 career NHL games, all with the Blue Jackets, he's notched 11-9-20. He's got skill with the puck and a cannon of a shot, but he's been mostly in a bottom-six role for the Blue Jackets.
