  Fallen Blue Jackets goalie remembered as friend, hero UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (AP) — Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Matiss Kivlenieks was hailed as a friend and hero during a memorial service held Thursday for the player who died on the Fourth of July from an errant fireworks mortar blast. Authorities have said the firework at a private home northwest of Detroit tilted slightly and started to fire toward people nearby. Kivlenieks was in a hot tub and was trying to move out of the way of the firework when he was struck. He suffered chest trauma and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Just under a week after his longtime teammate Seth Jones was shipped out to Chicago, Zach Werenski has signed a six-year contract with an AAV of $9.853-million.

Werenski has been a proven offensive threat from the blueline throughout his career, recording 65 goals, including 20 in 2019-20. Werenski was still one of the Blue Jackets' best players in a year where the team just escaped finishing last, but he's always been a star for a team with few to show for.

Werenski is set to play the final year of his three-year, $5-million AAV deal he signed in 2019. The Blue Jackets buy into five of his UFA deals, lasting until he's 30.

Once the deal kicks in, Werenski will be the sixth-highest paid defenseman in the league for 2022-23 while holding the third-highest cap hit.
