Jackets send Johansen down to Springfield

The Columbus Blue Jackets assigned center Ryan Johansen to the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League.

Johansen, 20, has two assists in 10 games with the Blue Jackets this season. He began the 2012-13 season with Springfield, tallying 14 goals and 27 points in 34 games.

The fourth pick in 2010 NHL Draft hadn't registered a point in five games, but he was the team's leader in faceoff percentage at .508.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
