The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed Joonas Korpisalo to a one year contract extension.

Korpisalo’s deal comes with a value of $1.15 million for next season and he will compete with Elvis Merzlikins for the right to succeed Sergei Bobrovsky as the Blue Jackets netminder of the future.

In his career, Korpisalo has posted a 41-31-9 record with a 2.89 goals against average and a .907 save percentage while serving mostly as Sergei Bobrovsky’s backup.
