Excitement elevates as the Columbus Blue Jackets inked a few more recent draftees with entry-level contracts: Last year’s 2020 draft pick (Rd. 5, #145) Ole Julian Bjørgvik Holm ($917,500 AAV), and Cole Sillinger ($1,633,333 AAV) taken with the 12th overall pick this past July. We’ll talk about those guys, and a lot of exciting names on this week’s edition of The Cannon Cast as we get into:
- The latest on our Top 25 Under 25
- Can one recent CBJ draftee actually make his way to Cleveland this season - or higher?
- And we dig more into the Cam Atkinson for Jakub Voráček trade last month after our Q&A with Broad Street Hockey (Thanks to Broad Street Hockey’s Kelly Hinkle!)
And much more!
Yesterday before an exhibition game between Latvia and Norway, Latvia paid tribute to #CBJ G Matiss Kivlenieks who tragically passed away on July 4th.— Hockey Hound (@HockeyHoundShow) August 21, 2021
Kivlenieks family was present and the players wore a circular picture of Kivi on their jerseys.
