Change of plans: Blue Jackets likely to trade Seth Jones without contract extension – The Athletic

by

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Blue Jackets president of hockey operations John Davidson declined to confirm reports that star defenseman
Seth Jones has told the club he won’t be signing a contract extension with it this summer.

“There was an agreement to keep the discussions private,” Davidson said. “The Blue Jackets will continue to keep things private.”

But Davidson has made it abundantly clear that the Blue Jackets won’t take the same approach with Jones that they did two years ago with forward Artemi Panarin, who eventually signed with the New York Rangers.

“The No. 1 thing we’d like to do is keep Seth,” Davidson told The Athletic on Sunday.
