T.J. Tynan is a gifted playmaker who will add organizational depth to the Blue Jackets.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed Notre Dame senior forward T.J. Tynan to an entry-level contract. The Orland Park, Ill. native is going to the team that drafted him in the third round of the 2011 NHL Draft.

Tynan, an undersized, but quick forward, has great hands and vision on the ice. The Blue Jackets organization is getting a player who will be more of a playmaker than a goal scorer.

The Des Moines Buccaneers product had eight goals and 30 assists in 40 games played this season. He finished his career in a Fighting Irish uniform with 54 goals and 107 assists in 164 total games.

Tynan and his teammates had their season come to an end Saturday night in a 4-3 overtime loss to St. Cloud State in the NCAA West Regional.
