The 21-year-old athlete and eighth overall pick in the 2018 draft could have enjoyed partial autonomy next week.

Last season, he had 11 goals and as many assists for 22 points in 52 games, setting personal bests in the National League (NHL). He also maintained a -11 differential.

"Adam is a mobile and talented defenseman with the skills and creativity to make an offensive contribution from the blue line," said Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen, according to the French-language NHL site.

Despite a few injuries, he had a very good first season with our club. [...] We believe that he will have the potential to become an impact player in this league.

The Jackets missed the playoffs in 2021-22.
