Blue Jackets Won't Sign Draft Pick And Former Cougar Ruopp

After being selected in the 2015 NHL entry draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets, former Prince George Cougar Captain Sam Ruopp will be heading back into this year’s draft.

That’s after reports that the Blue Jackets will not sign the 5th round selection, making him eligible to be re-selected in this month’s draft.

Ruopp signed an Amateur Tryout contract with the Cleveland Monsters of the American Hockey League at the end of the Cougars regular season.

The 21 year old notched 4 goals and 20 assists in 55 games with the Cats this past season.
