The Blue Jackets have signed Boone Jenner to a two-year contract extension worth $5.8 million ($2.9M AAV).
Jenner is having a career-year, posting 22 goals and 13 assists (35 points) in 63 games with the Blue Jackets this season. Jenner was a pending free agent at the end of the season, but now become an RFA in 2018-19.
Jenner (back) will travel on the Blue Jackets upcoming road-trip.
Jenner has been out since December 18th, but he took part in the Blue Jackets practice this morning, including line rushes, which is a great sign he is nearing a return. He will travel with the team to Western Canada and should return to the lineup at some point during the trip.
Jenner has been sidelined since December 18th. He resumed skating in late-February, but had not made any significant progress. Skating today is a good sign that he may return to practice soon—but until then, his return is not imminent.
Jenner will miss 1-2 months with a stress fracture in his back.
The injury woes continue in Columbus. Jenner, who missed the start of the season with a broken had, has scored six goals with six assists (12 points) in 20 games before getting injured. He has been placed on IR and will be out until at least late-January. The Blue Jackets recalled Sean Collins from Springfield (AHL).

Jenner has not played yet this season because of a broken hand that he suffered in the preseason. He was expected to open the season on the Blue Jacket top line with Ryan Johansen, but he will make his season debut on the third line with Alexander Wennberg and Matt Calvert, who also returns to the lineup tonight.

Jenner has not played this season because of a broken hand he suffered in the preseason, but he has been progressing and skating on a regular line this morning suggests he could make his season debut on Tuesday vs. Carolina. Jenner had 16 goals and 13 assists (29 points) in 72 games in his rookie season and will likely find himself on Ryan Johansen's wing again, even if he does not start there in his debut.

Jenner skated with a glove on his injured hand and handled pucks for the third straight practice. There’s still no defined date for Jenner’s return, but he knows he is getting closer. “It’s hard to put a number on that day, that’s the thing," Jenner said. "You just try to see when you’re ready to go. And if today’s the day then you take it from there. He remains day-to-day, but this is finally some positive news on the Blue Jackets' injury front.

Jenner has been sidelined since the preseason after undergoing surgery to repair a broken hand. Jenner is nearly four weeks into a five-week timetable, so his return to the ice appears to be right on schedule. Expect him to skate with the Blue Jackets throughout the week and likely return this weekend or next week.
Jenner will miss five weeks after undergoing surgery on his broken hand.
Jenner will miss the first month of the regular season, which is troublesome for the Blue Jackets who are currently without Nathan Horton (back) and Ryan Johansen (unsigned), all of whom were expect to be on Columbus' first line to start the season. The injury is sure to make Jenner drop in fantasy drafts, but he remains a 20-20 candidate.
Jenner expected to miss at least one month after suffering a broken left hand.
With Jenner out for a month, Nathan Horton out with a back injury and Ryan Johansen still unsigned, the Blue Jackets entire projected first line is unavailable. Jenner, 21, had 16 goals and 13 assists (29 points) in 72 games in his rookie season. The 6-foot-2, 204 lbs. forward is a great goal scorer and was poised for a breakout season, but it will have to wait one month before it starts.
