Blue Jackets trade Robinson to Sabres
The Columbus Blue Jackets traded winger Eric Robinson to the Buffalo Sabres for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2025, the clubs announced Wednesday.
Columbus will receive the pick if Robinson plays 45 games this season, according to CapFriendly. The Blue Jackets have 56 contests remaining.
Robinson, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound power forward, has managed one goal in seven games this season. He's averaged 12 goals, 14 assists, and 134 hits per 82 games throughout his seven-year NHL career.
The 28-year-old notably scored a hat trick - the only one of his career - last season against the Sabres at KeyBank Center.
Robinson is in the final year of his contract with a $1.6-million cap hit. He'll be an unrestricted free agent at season's end.
