"We'll evaluate him in the Memorial Cup and make a decision," Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson told the Columbus Dispatch. "Not sure right now."
Corbeil was excellent in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League post-season, going 16-0-1 with a 2.18 goals against average and a 0.917 save percentage. He went 37-10-1 in the regular season with a 2.38 GAA and a 0.911 SV%. Despite the solid numbers, the Jackets, like many, wonder if he is legitimately as good as those numbers show or if he is benefiting from playing with an all-star team.
“Two weeks ago, the Blue Jackets seemed to be leaning away from signing Corbeil,” writes the Dispatch’s Aaron Portzline. “These days it seems to be leaning back the other direction, though no decision has been made.”
The Jackets recently announced that they would not be signing Rimouski Oceanic forward Petr Straka.
Remember, this is the Columbus Blue Jackets we're talking about here, so anything could happen.
