Boqvist (wrist) was traded from Chicago to Columbus along with draft picks in exchange for Seth Jones on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Boqvist suffered a broken wrist in late April after tallying two goals and 16 points through 35 games. Drafted eighth overall in 2018, the blueliner will turn 21 in August and should be ready for training camp assuming he hasn't suffered any setbacks in his recovery. Boqvist will likely see a top-four role with the Blue Jackets and should be featured on the power play.
