Columbus Blue Jackets recall C Andrew Joudrey and D David Savard from AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled centre Andrew Joudrey and defenceman David Savard from the club's American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

The 27-year-old Joudrey, signed as a free agent last summer after spending the previous five years in the Washington organization, has seven goals and eight assists in 42 games with Springfield this season. He was the Capitals' fifth pick and 249th overall in the 2003 draft.

Savard has five assists and 10 penalty minutes in 15 games with the Blue Jackets this season. Columbus' third pick and 94th overall in the 2009 draft, he also has three goals and 11 assists with Springfield.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
