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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
