The Blue Jackets have signed Marko Dano to a one-year, two-way deal.

Dano was originally a first-round pick (No.27 overall in 2013) of the Blue Jackets but was traded to the Blackhawks as a part of the Brandon Saad deal in 2015. Since then, Dano has played 13 games for the Blackhawks, 82 games for the Jets and eight games for the Avalanche. He spent most of last season in the AHL, where he had 30 points (12G / 18A) in 51 games for the Manitoba Moose. Dano will be a fringe NHLer for the Blue Jackets and could start 2020 in the AHL.

Dano will make his Avalanche debut on Monday.

Dano was claimed off of waivers from the Jets and will make his Colorado debut in Philadelphia. Just like most of his time in Winnipeg, Dano will skate on Colorado’s fourth line tonight, but has a path to more ice-time if he plays well. The 23-year-old former first-round pick has just 19 goals and 26 assist (45 points) in 130 career NHL games.

The Avalanche have claimed Marko Dano off of waivers from the Jets.

Dano was a first round pick (No.27 overall) in 2013 but had just two goals and one assist in 23 games with the Jets last season. A deep lineup in Winnipeg forced Dano to play a third or fourth line role, but he could get a bigger chance with the Avalanche, who are devoid of middle-6 wingers.

Dano (lower-body) is expected to miss a few weeks.

Dano left Thursday’s game with a lower-body injury and did not return. Head coach Paul Maurice said post-game that Dano will undergo tests on Friday but isn’t optimistic. Dano will likely miss some time and if that’s the case expect them to recall a forward before Saturday’s game.
