Observations

May 2020 – The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed 20-year-old Jake Christiansen to a three-year entry-level deal. Despite going undrafted, the West Vancouver native has enjoyed a very respectable  Junior career. In five season with the Everett Silvertips, he has amassed 152 points through 297 games. This includes a phenomenal 2019-20 campaign where he led all defenders with 22 goals and sat 11th in the entire league with a 1.32 points-per-game. With a season like that, it’s no question that the Blue Jackets are happy to have him in the organization going forward. He’s a terrific puck mover with an above-average shot, capable of scoring from afar. He thrives on the powerplay and could provide solid fantasy upside in the next few years. Expect him to play a year (maybe two) in the AHL as he gets his pro feet under him. However, if he is able to transition his offensive touch to higher ranks, anything can happen. Dave Hall
