Blue Jackets Extend Shelley
The Bluejackets extended the contract of enforcer left winger Jody Shelley, adding two years. Details were not disclosed. Shelley has been with Columbus for three seasons. Last year he had 228 penalty minutes, three goals and three assists over 76 games. Shelley adds punch, both figuratively and literally, to the Bluejackets lineup. However, he will be expected to improve his offensive numbers even though he obviously knows that his main role is as an enforcer.
