The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed forward Anthony Duclair to a one-year contract worth $650K, the team confirmed to The Athletic's Aaron Portzline Thursday.

Duclair, 22, had a breakout year in his first season with the Arizona Coyotes in 2015-16, scoring 20 goals and 44 points.

Things slowed down for the former third-round pick the following campaign, when he posted five goals and 15 points in 58 games. He also spent six weeks with the Tucson Roadrunners in the AHL during the year.

After another slow start last year, Duclair requested a trade. In January, he was dealt to the Chicago Blackhawks where he appeared in 23 games, adding two goals and eight points.

Chicago chose not to extend a $1.2-million qualifying offer to Duclair late last month, making him an unrestricted free agent.
