The Columbus Blue Jackets continued building their 2021-22 roster, signing defenseman Mikko Lehtonen to a one-year deal on Friday.

The move came less than 24 hours after the Blue Jackets locked up fellow defenseman Zach Werenski with a six-year, $57.5 million contract extension through the 2027-28 season.

Contract terms for Lehtonen were not announced.

Lehtonen, a 27-year-old from Finland, made his NHL debut last season and had six assists as he split time between the Blue Jackets and Toronto Maple Leafs.
