The 29-year-old winger will earn an average of $4.75 million a season.
“Kristian is a highly skilled player with good vision and hockey sense who has performed at a very high level throughout his career,” said GM Scott Howson. “We are very pleased to have a player and a person of his calibre join the Blue Jackets organization.”
