On Friday afternoon, it was reported by TSN insider Darren Dreger that the Columbus Blue Jackets had come to terms on a deal with the Philadelphia Flyers that would send Flyers backup goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky to the Blue Jackets for undisclosed draft picks.
In addition to Dreger, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch has also stated that the deal has been reached and reported that the Blue Jackets will be sending the No. 45 overall selection in Friday's entry draft to the Flyers in addition to two other picks for Bobrovsky.

A few moments later, Dreger reported that in addition to the No. 45 overall pick, the Blue Jackets were also packaging the No. 117 overall selection (a fourth rounder from the Vancouver Canucks) in this year's draft as well as a fourth-rounder in the 2013 draft, which the team had acquired from the Phoenix Coyotes.
