Columbus Blue Jackets recall right wing Cam Atkinson from Springfield Falcons of AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled right wing Cam Atkinson from their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Playing in his first full professional season, the 22-year-old Atkinson has 29 goals and 15 assists in 50 games. He is tied for the AHL lead in power-play goals (13) and is second in overall goals. He has appeared in five games with the Blue Jackets this season and scored his first NHL goal Oct. 10 vs. Vancouver.

Atkinson was the Blue Jackets' eighth pick, 157th overall, in the 2008 draft after he finished his career at Boston College.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
