Sergei Bobrovsky dealt to Columbus
By Pierre LeBrun
PITTSBURGH -- The Columbus Blue Jackets hope they've addressed their long-standing goalie issues after acquiring Sergei Bobrovsky from the Philadelphia Flyers for three draft picks on Friday.
The Flyers will get the Jackets' 45th overall pick in Saturday's second round plus the 117th overall this year as well as the fourth-round pick next year (pick previously acquired from Phoenix).
The two-day draft begins Friday night in Pittsburgh.
Bobrovsky, 23, has appeared in 83 career NHL games with the Flyers, compiling a 42-23-10 record with a 2.73 goals-against average and .909 save percentage.
A native of Novokuznetsk, Russia, Bobrovsky played four seasons with Metallurg in Russia from 2006-10. He registered a 2.74 GAA and three shutouts in 99 career games. He also helped Russia to a bronze medal in the 2008 World Junior championships.
