Jackets trade draft pick for Stralman
Stralman, a seventh-round pick in the 2005 draft by the Maple Leafs, has four goals and 18 assists in his two seasons in the NHL. He will be given a shot at playing on the Blue Jackets' league-worst power play. The Blue Jackets also cut nine players on Monday to pare their roster to 27 players in advance of Saturday's season opener at home against Minnesota.
