The Columbus Blue Jackets have taken a big step to adding some experience of the blueline.

Columbus has agreed to a 5-year, $18.75 million contract with defencemen Mike Commodore.

"We are building a team identity based on competitiveness and being hard to play against and Mike fits that very well," general manager Scott Howson said. "He is a physical presence on the blue line, has won championships at various levels throughout his career and we think he will be an excellent addition to our hockey club."

The native of Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta was acquired by the Ottawa Senators at the trade deadline from Carolina for Joe Corvo and Patrick Eaves in order to add some playoff experience.

Commodore played 67 games in 2007-08 and scored three goals and added 11 assists.
