Clarity surrounding Sergei Bobrovsky's future with the Columbus Blue Jackets apparently won't be coming any time soon.

With training camp here, Bobrovsky, an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2018-19 season, spoke with media about his murky status going forward.

"After last season, I told the situation to the management of the Blue Jackets, so they know everything," Bobrovsky said, per Aaron Portzline of The Athletic. "They know my plans for the season. They know my plans for the future. They know everything.

"They know exactly what we're going to do."

Predictably, Bobrovsky declined to offer any specifics, but he did say he won't negotiate a new contract during the season - matching the sentiment of teammate and fellow 2019 UFA Artemi Panarin.

Bobrovsky is undoubtedly Columbus' most important player. Since joining the club in 2012-13, the 29-year-old has won 176 games with a .923 save percentage and 24 shutouts to go with two Vezina Trophies and two first-team All-Star selections.
