Ethan Moreau wasn't out of a job for long.

The former Edmonton Oilers captain was claimed off waivers by the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday.

Moreau, 34, who had been with the Oilers for the better part of 11 seasons, serving as captain for the last three, was waived by the Oilers on Tuesday.

The Blue Jackets represent Moreau's third NHL club having started his career with the Chicago Blackhawks.

"We are very pleased and excited to add a player of Ethan's calibre and person of his character to the Blue Jackets organization," said Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson. "He will bring valuable leadership, competitiveness and experience to our lineup."

Moreau had nine goals and nine assists in 75 games with the Oilers last season.
