COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed forward Fredrik Modin on injured reserve and made several other moves to reduce their roster to 23 players heading into Saturday's opener against Minnesota.

General manager Scott Howson announced Tuesday that the veteran Modin, who has a knee injury, will start the year on IR.

The Blue Jackets also placed left wing Alexandre Picard and defenseman Mathieu Roy on waivers for the purpose of assignment to the club's American Hockey League affiliate in Syracuse; returned left wing Matt Calvert to the Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Hockey League; and released defenseman Martin Skoula.

The club announced the signing of defensemen David Liffiton and Dylan Reese with both players assigned to Syracuse.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
