As the Columbus Blue Jackets proceeded with an overhaul of the roster in 2021, no splashy free agent signings were expected. Instead, they went for a depth player with a good story. Sean Kuraly had been a solid but not spectacular fourth line center for the Boston Bruins. Over parts of five seasons, he put up 24/44/68 in 270 games. That’s a 7.3/13.4/20.7 pace over 82 games, at 13:09 minutes played per game. His style of play thrived in the playoffs, at least, with 9/10/19 over 57 games. He also scored four game winners, including two in a 4/6/10 campaign when the Bruins reached the Cup Final in 2019.
