Blue Jackets return five to junior clubs

The Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday returned five players to their junior teams.

Among those leaving camp were three players taken in the 2013 NHL Draft -- defenseman Dillon Heatherington, a second-round pick (No. 50), who will rejoin Swift Current in the Western Hockey League; forward Oliver Bjorkstrand, a third-round pick (No. 89), who was sent back to Portland (WHL); and fourth-round pick (No. 105) forward Nick Moutrey, who will play for Saginaw in the Ontario Hockey League.

Also sent down was goalie Oscar Dansk (Erie, OHL) and forward Josh Anderson (London, OHL).

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
