Last-place Blue Jackets get up a boost up front, activate left-winger Huselius

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Left wing Kristian Huselius was activated off injured reserve by the Blue Jackets on Friday.

Huselius, 33, who missed all of Columbus' 25 games due to a pectoral injury suffered while lifting weights, has 190 goals and 451 points in 660 career games with Florida, Calgary and Columbus.

The 47th overall pick in the 1997 draft by the Panthers, Huselius has 58 goals and 142 points since signing with the Blue Jackets on July 2, 2008.

Columbus is 7-15-3 with 17 points and is in last place in the Central Division.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
