NHL: it’s probably over for Hofmann at the Columbus Blue Jackets – rts.ch
Grégory Hofmann will probably no longer wear the Columbus Blue Jackets jersey. The Bernese Jura striker, who returned to Switzerland in December to attend the birth of his child, told the Ohio franchise that he will not return to the United States.
« We gave permission to Grégory to take a step back for personal reasons and he informed us today that because of these reasons he had decided not to come back, General manager of the franchise Jarmo Kekalainen said. We are of course disappointed, but we had no choice but to suspend it. «
Acquired in February in an exchange with the Carolina Hurricanes, the Swiss champion with Zug signed a one-year lease with Columbus on June 14, 2021. With the Blue Jackets, Hofamann (29) scored 2 goals and distilled 5 assists in 24 parts. He hasn’t scratched the ice since December 14 in Vancouver.
