COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — The Columbus Blue Jackets traded veteran right winger Jakub Voracek and a 6th round pick for Arizona Coyotes goaltender Jon Gillies on Thursday.

This is the second time this week the Blue Jackets have traded for a goalie before the NHL’s Friday trade deadline. CBJ acquired legendary Kings backstop Jonathan Quick early Wednesday morning and promptly traded him to Las Vegas on Thursday for goalie Michael Hutchinson and a seventh round pick.

In the deal with the Kings, CBJ sent goaltender Joonas Korpisalo and defenseman Vladislav Gavrikov to Los Angeles for Quick, a conditional first round pick and a third round pick.

Voracek began his career in Columbus when he was drafted by the franchise in 2007. He spent three years with the Blue Jackets and 10 seasons in Philadelphia before being traded back to the CBJ on July 24, 2023.
