The Brian Gibbons Era has come to a close.
Via the Blue Jackets:
“The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed forward Brian Gibbons to a one-year, two-way (NHL/AHL) contract, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.
Gibbons, 26, has spent the past three seasons in the Pittsburgh Penguins organization, tallying five goals, seven assists, 12 points, six penalty minutes and a +5 plus/minus rating in 41 games played for Pittsburgh and 30-60-90 in 168 appearances with the American Hockey League’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
