Russell, 24, has played in 12 games this season with the Blue Jackets, registering three points (two goals, one assist) along with 13 penalty minutes.

The 5’10”, 174-pound defenseman has played in 288 National Hockey League (NHL) games over five seasons, all with Columbus, amassing 79 points (18 goals, 61 assists) and 124 penalty minutes.
