For the second time in the last week the Columbus Blue Jackets received news that one of their players/prospects was refusing to return to North America and would be playing in Europe. After Alexander Texier announced his intention to remain close to home during a mental health battle.

Yesterday Blue Jackets' prospect Calvin Thurkauf announced he'd signed a 7-year deal with HC Lugano of Switzerland. The deal will keep the 25-year-old as a member of the club until he's 32.

This contract effectively ends Thurkauf's NHL career. Thurkauf had previously played 3 games for the Jackets in 2019-2020. The 6'2 center was drafted by the Jackets in the 7th round in 2016.
