Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has been on fire over the past few weeks. Having been named one of the NHL's "Three Stars of the Week," in consecutive weeks, Bobrovsky has compiled a 6-0-2 record with a 0.74 goals against average, .976 save percentage and two shutouts.
With his on-ice success going through the roof, Bobrovsky must have been pleased to hear that the Blue Jackets are ready to begin discussing his next contract.
According to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch, the organization is hoping to begin negotiations with a select group of pending-restricted free agents over the course of this week. In addition to Bobrovsky, the Blue Jackets will look to talk with the representation of Artem Anisimov, Cam Atkinson and Matt Calvert.
Bobrovsky's last contract carried an annual average value of $1.75 million against the cap. In 103 NHL regular season games, the 24-year-old goaltender has compiled a 51-29-15 record with a .914 save percentage and 2.58 goals against average.
