Karl Goehring, the goaltender who led North Dakota to two straight NCAA championship games and the 2000 national title, signed a free-agent contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Terms were not disclosed.
Goehring, an Apple Valley, Minn., native, was 80-20-13 with a 2.23 goals against average in four years with the Sioux.
A two-time all-American and a three-time member of the all-WCHA team, Goehring holds the league record for most shutouts (14 in league play).
Goehring has reportedly been told he’ll be the Blue Jackets’ fourth goaltender in training camp and will probably start next season with Syracuse of the AHL.
