JANUARY 26, 2022

COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated defenseman Adam Boqvist off the National Hockey League’s COVID-19 protocol, club General Manager and Alternate Governor Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.  Boqvist, who has missed the past three games, is expected to be in the lineup tonight when the Blue Jackets host the Calgary Flames.

Boqvist, 21, has recorded seven goals and seven assists for 14 points with four penalty minutes in 26 games in his first season with the Blue Jackets in 2021-22.  He has collected 6-7-13 in 17 games since November 24, ranking third (tied) among all NHL blueliners in goals during that span.  He made his Columbus debut in the season opener on October 14 vs. Arizona and tallied his first goal on November 15 vs. Detroit.

The Falun, Sweden native was acquired by the Blue Jackets from the Chicago Blackhawks in a trade on July 23, 2021.  Originally drafted by Chicago in the first round, eighth overall, at the 2018 NHL Draft, the 6-0, 189-pound defenseman has registered 13-30-43 and 24 penalty minutes in 102 career contests with the Blue Jackets and Blackhawks since making his NHL debut in 2019-20.
