Columbus re-signs Ryan Russell.

Quote:
The Columbus Blue Jackets have agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way NHL-American Hockey League contract with center Ryan Russell, club Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Scott Howson announced today. As is club policy, terms were not disclosed.

Russell, 25, played 41 games for Columbus this past season. He was scheduled to become an UFA this summer.

As for Helenius, I think it's 50/50 he comes back. Tampa can't be confident in Helenius as a #1 with so little NHL experience and already have a solid #2 under contract in Garon. Plus, with KHL teams rumored to be interested, I think he could very well end up in Europe for another year and come back in 2013-14.
