The Columbus Blue Jackets inked forward Boone Jenner to a four-year deal with an average annual value of $3.75 million, the team announced Wednesday.

The longest-tenured Blue Jacket has one year left on an identical deal that he signed in 2018. He had 17 points in 41 games last season, falling short of the 20-point mark for the first time since 2014-15.

"Boone has been a consummate professional with his work ethic, character and leadership," general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. "He is an important part of our hockey club and ensuring he remains a Blue Jacket for years to come was a priority for us this summer."

Drafted by Columbus in 2011, Jenner has 240 points in 530 career games. His extension will begin in 2022-23.

The Blue Jackets have been shedding franchise mainstays over the past few months, with former captain Nick Foligno, Cam Atkinson, and Seth Jones all moving on to new teams.
