Columbus Blue Jackets forward Artem Anisimov has signed a lockout contract with his former team Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, the team said Thursday.

The 24 year old was traded to Columbus in July after spending four seasons with the New York Rangers, where he notched up 119 points in 270 games.

Anisimov, a product of the Lokomotiv youth system, played in Yaroslavl for two years before moving to North America in 2007.
