“We are very happy to add Ryan Dzingel to our team as he is a very good player and goal scorer in the National Hockey League and a quality person who we believe will be a great fit with our group,” said General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen. “He has local ties having played at Ohio State and in talking to him is very excited about coming back to Columbus, being a Blue Jacket and helping us as we move forward.”
