COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Columbus Blue Jackets have traded prospect Blake Siebenaler to the Pittsburgh Penguins for a 2019 draft pick.
Columbus general manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced Monday that the club traded the 22-year-old defenseman to Metropolitan Division rival Pittsburgh for the conditional draft pick.
Siebenaler has one goal and one assist with six penalty minutes in 17 games this season with Cleveland, the club’s American Hockey League affiliate.
He was selected by Columbus in the third round of the 2014 NHL draft and spent three seasons with the Ontario Hockey League’s Niagara IceDogs from 2013 to 2016 before playing in Cleveland.
