COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed goaltender Anton Forsberg to a three-year entry-level contract, General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.

Columbus’ sixth pick, 188th overall, at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Forsberg appeared in 33 games with Sodertalje of Sweden’s HockeyAllsvenskan in 2012-13, earning 24 victories while finishing second in the league with a 2.04 goals-against-average and .933 save percentage.
