Following a promising training camp in Columbus, he was assigned to begin the 2015–16 season with AHL affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters. In 14 games, Bodnarchuk was leading the Monsters defence on the top pairing, contributing with 8 points, before he was recalled to the Blue Jackets on November 21, 2015. He made his debut with Columbus, playing his first NHL game since 2010, in a 5-3 defeat against the San Jose Sharks the following day. In his 11th career game, Bodnarchuk recorded his first NHL point in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Florida Panthers on December 4, 2015.
Bodnarchuk played in 16 games with the Blue Jackets before he was placed on waivers in order to return to the Monsters. On January 5, 2016, Bodnarchuck was claimed off of waivers by the Colorado Avalanche.
