The Blue Jackets have acquired right-winger Mathieu Olivier from the Nashville Predators in exchange for a 2022 fourth-round pick, which is 122nd overall. Olivier is under contract through the 2022-23 season on a one-way deal with a cap hit of $750k and is scheduled to be an RFA when the contract expires. 

In 48 NHL games, all with the Predators, the 25-year-old Olivier has scored three goals and seven points while registering 88 PIMs. He's appeared in five NHL playoff games and posted no points and 14 PIMs.

This past season, he played 10 games for Nashville, recording an assist and 14 PIMs. He played 30 games for the Predators in 2020-21 and posted 70 PIMs, which ranked fifth in the league. 

In 156 career AHL games, he has scored 19 goals and 42 points in addition to recording 262 PIMs.

The Blue Jackets now own the sixth, 12th, 44th, 96th, 109th, and 203rd picks in next week's NHL Draft.
