The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed forward Kerby Rychel to a three-year entry level contract, the club announced Wednesday. 

Rychel was the club's second of three first round picks in the 2013 NHL Draft, selected 19th overall.

"Kerby is a hard-nosed player who is very competitive and possesses a mixture of skill, the ability to score goals and grit," said GM Jarmo Kekalainen in a statement. "We believe he will be an important part of our organization for years to come as he continues to grow and develop as a player."

Rychel, 19, has tallied 17 goals and 28 assists for 45 points with 17 penalty minutes and a +16 plus/minus rating to go along with five power play and four game-winning goals in 30 games with Windsor and Guelph this season.

He has picked up six points, two penalty minutes and a plus-3 plus/minus rating in three games since joining the Storm.

He has appeared in 228 career OHL games, registering 227 points, 238 penalty minutes and a plus-2 plus/minus rating with Guelph, Windsor and Mississauga since 2010. 

Rychel is currently playing for Team Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championships in Sweden.
