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

I think everybody wanted the puck tonight. Everybody wanted to be part of the solution and it reflected on the way we played. It's tiring when you have to chase the puck but tonight was one of those nights where everyone really wanted to make a play and wanted to have an impact on the game.
