Blue Jackets Claim Gillies.

Gillies claimed by Blue Jackets.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have claimed left wing Colton Gillies off waivers from the Minnesota Wild. Gillies, 22, had two points in 34 games with the Wild this season.


  1. More proof Howson needs to go. Team needs defense and a goalie, but Howson is obsessed with forwards. Two assists in 34 games? Wow, he’ll light up the board for us.

  2. Gillies is more of a physical guy if I am not mistaken. But it could be a good sign that the CBJ’s are getting ready to make some trades and now they have a plug when they lose some forwards … or maybe they want to try and send him to the AHL also.
