COLUMBUS, OHIO - The Columbus Blue Jackets have re-signed defenseman Ron Hainsey to a two-year deal.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Hainsey, 25, appeared in 55 games with the Blue Jackets last season and tallied 17 points with 43 penalty minutes and led the team in plus/minus rating with a club record plus-13. He was claimed off waivers from Montreal on Nov. 29.

"We are very pleased to have Ron back with us," said Blue Jackets general manager Doug MacLean. "Last season he came in after he was claimed off waivers and played well the last 50 games of the season. We are pleased with his progress and think that he can develop into a strong player in the National Hockey League."

Prior to joining the Blue Jackets, Hainsey had 17 points and 19 penalty minutes in 22 games for the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League.

Hainsey has appeared in 87 career NHL games, recording 19 points and 47 penalty minutes with Montreal and Columbus.

Montreal's first pick, 13th overall, in the 2000 Entry Draft, Hainsey played two seasons at UMass-Lowell.
