Matvichuk invited to Blue Jackets camp

From Tom Reed of the Columbus Dispatch:

The Blue Jackets have invited defenseman Richard Matvichuk to training camp as a non-roster tryout. The team is still awaiting word on whether the 35-year-old Matvichuk will accept.

He most notably made two Stanley Cup finals appearances with Ken Hitchcock in Dallas in 1998-99 and 1999-2000, but has played in only one NHL regular-season game in the past two years.

Even if he accepts, I don’t see the veteran defenseman making the team.
