Johansen earns another start for Blue Jackets
Columbus Blue Jackets coach Scott Arniel told reporters that rookie Ryan Johansen will be in the lineup on Wednesday against the Colorado Avalanche.

Johansen, the team's fourth overall choice in the 2010 Entry Draft, earned 8:46 of playing time in his NHL debut against the Nashville Predators in the team's season-opener on Oct. 7. He totaled 40 goals and 92 points with the Portland WinterHawks of the Western Hockey League last season.

In other news out of Columbus, Arniel said that center Jeff Carter is questionable with the flu.

"We'll see how he is when he comes back in this afternoon," Arniel told The Columbus Dispatch. "We just wanted to get him home, get him away from everybody and let him rest. We'll see if he's feeling better tonight."
Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
