The Carolina Hurricanes have traded defenseman Jake Bean to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for the 44th pick in this year's draft, the team announced Friday.

Carolina selected Bean 13th overall in the 2016 NHL Draft. The 23-year-old completed his rookie season in 2020-21, notching one goal and 11 assists in 42 games.

The Blue Jackets acquired the No. 44 pick earlier Friday in a trade sending defenseman Seth Jones to the Chicago Blackhawks for a package that also included two first-rounders and blue-liner Adam Boqvist.
