The Columbus Blue Jackets signed center Brandon Dubinsky to a six-year contract extension on Friday.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, the deal is worth $35.1 million through the 2020-21 season. That is an average of $5.85 million per season.

Dubinsky still has one year remaining on a four-year contract he signed with the New York Rangers that pays him $4.65 million for this season.

Dubinsky, 28, has 18 goals, 52 assists and a plus-7 rating in 105 games since he was acquired from the Rangers two seasons ago.

"I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good," Dubinsky said. "My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top. Nothing would make me happier in my career than to do that. To go from last place to first place would be amazing and I think we're quite capable of doing it and the ownership and the front office is going to find a way to make that happen. That's why I wanted to commit here."

In last season's six-game playoff series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Dubinsky had one goal and five assists while often matched up against star Sidney Crosby.

In 498 career NHL regular-season games with the Rangers and Blue Jackets, Dubinsky has 99 goals, 283 points, 631 penalty minutes and a plus-31 rating.
