2020-21 Season Review
Jack Roslovic, a former first round pick of the Winnipeg Jets, held out to start the season, frustrated with his role and usage in the Jets’ organization. When Pierre-Luc Dubois was traded to the Jets, Roslovic was included as part of the return. Roslovic signed a two year deal with his hometown club that granted him the role he wanted - top six center. The Blue Jackets, desperate for anyone who could play center, were all too happy to have him.
In 48 games, Roslovic put up 12-22-34, tying his career best for goals and setting new personal highs for assists and total points. Roslovic had eight multi-point games, including two with three points.
2021-22 Season Outlook
Roslovic will be counted on to play meaningful minutes at center for a Columbus team that still has no depth at the position. Roslovic will have chances to build chemistry and continue to grow as the team rebuilds.
