Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The Columbus Blue Jackets signed Kerby Rychel to a three-year, entry-level contract on Tuesday.

The forward was the second of the team's three first-round picks in the 2013 draft, selected 19th overall.

Rychel, 19, has scored 17 goals and collected 28 assists in 30 combined Ontario Hockey League games with Windsor and Guelph.
