Various sources report the Columbus Blue Jackets have signed winger Vaclav Prospal to a one-year, $1.75 million contract.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Good move by Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson to replace the injured Kristian Huselius. Prospal posted up good numbers last season following his return from knee surgery, and if he can stay healthy and continue that type of offensive production, should provide a good boost to the Jackets offense.
