Dean Kukan has played his final game for the Blue Jackets.

The defenseman decided to head to his home country of Switzerland to continue his hockey career.

In six seasons in the NHL, all with Columbus, Kukan played in 153 regular-season games, scoring five goals and 30 points, and adding one goal and two points in 19 playoff games. 

In 2021-22, Kukan played in just 41 games, but did achieve career-highs in goals with three, assists with eight, and points with 11.
