Blue Jackets send forwards Atkinson, Mayorov to Springfield for AHL playoffs

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have assigned forwards Cam Atkinson and Maksim Mayorov to their affiliate in Springfield, Mass., for the American Hockey League playoffs.

Columbus General Manager Scott Howson announced the move Sunday, a day after the Blue Jackets wrapped up their season with a 7-3 victory over the New York Islanders. Atkinson scored two goals in that game and had an assist.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
