Reports: Josh Anderson to sign with Blue Jackets after all

After a training camp of holdouts and requesting trades, it appears Josh Anderson is staying in Columbus afterall.

Elliotte Friedman is “hearing” that Josh Anderson is going to stay in Columbus to the tune of a three-year deal.

Friedman was the first person to report Anderson had requested a trade last week (which was later confirmed by himself and Aaron Portzline) after the two sides had been, reportedly, about $150,000 apart in negotiations.

Portzline has since confirmed Friedman’s report.

The 23-yard-old winger is looking to improve upon his 17 goal season this year.

As of 10:30 p.m. ET, the Blue Jackets have not confirmed the deal.
