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.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
