02:55 PM ET 05.23 | The Columbus Blue Jackets and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky are no closer to a contract extension, according to general manager Jarmo Kekalainen. Kekalainen confirms the two sides haven't made any progress as of late. However, the general manager made it clear the team plans on working out a deal with the Vezina Finalist. While he doesn't think it will get to this point, Kekalainen stated that the club will match any potential offer sheet that Bobrovsky might receive. Of course, he would have to get to July 5 without a new contract from the Blue jackets to field such offers. It doesn't sound as though the Blue Jackets plan to have that happen.
