Bean signed a three-year, $7 million contract with the Blue Jackets on Thursday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Columbus acquired Bean from the Hurricanes in exchange for a second-round pick Friday. The 23-year-old blueliner drew into 42 games with Carolina last season, picking up 12 points and 55 shots while averaging 14:32 of ice time. Bean will likely slot into a top-four role with the Blue Jackets in 2021-22.
Bean was dealt from the Hurricanes to the Blue Jackets in exchange for a second-round pick Friday, Sportnet's Elliotte Friedman reports.
It's a quality addition for Columbus. Bean was exposed by Carolina in the expansion draft earlier this week, but the Kraken elected to grab forward Morgan Geekie instead. Now the Hurricanes pick up a draft pick, while the Jackets add a player who can be reasonably projected to fill a top-four defensive role as early as next season. Bean has displayed a bunch of offensive ability throughout his minor-league career and should get a chance to play heavy minutes for a Columbus team that is clearly embracing a youth movement.
Bean scored a power-play goal in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Lightning in Game 1.
The defenseman tied the game at 1-1 with a goal at 1:41 of the third period. Bean hadn't gotten on the scoresheet in his last 10 appearances, and his last goal was 37 games ago. The 22-year-old defenseman is likely to be limited to third-pairing minutes in the playoffs, although he'll still get a look as a power-play specialist.
Bean was promoted from the taxi squad for Monday's game against Dallas, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Bean will be a prime candidate to return to the active roster for Thursday's game against the Panthers.

Bean continues to shift between the taxi squad and active roster in a cap-saving measure for the team. The 22-year-old has had a solid season thus far, racking up one goal and 11 points in 31 games. He'll return to his usual role on the third defensive pairing while mixing in on the power play for Thursday's contest.
