Gillies joins Blue Jackets

Former Minnesota Wild forward Colton Gillies is now a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets after being picked up on waivers.

Colton Gillies has a new address – Columbus, Ohio.

The 22-year-old Semiahmoo Minor Hockey alum, who was a first-round draft pick of the Minnesota Wild in 2007, was put on waivers by the NHL club last week, and claimed a day later by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Gillies, a left-winger, signed a new contract with the Wild last summer, but has struggled this season, with just two assists in 37 games.

He is expected to make his debut with Columbus Tuesday.
