Blue Jackets acquire Jake Bean from Hurricanes for No. 44 pick
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.
