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

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
