Columbus Blue Jackets assign youngsters Ryan Murray to Everett, Boone Jenner to Oshawa

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have assigned defenceman and No. 2 overall pick this summer Ryan Murray to the Western Hockey League's Everett Silvertips and centre Boone Jenner to the Ontario Hockey League's Oshawa Generals.

The moves were made to allow younger players to return to their amateur clubs while the NHL sorts out its labour problems with the players' association.

The 18-year-old Murray has 20 goals and 84 assists in 168 career WHL games with Everett. He is also the Silvertips' captain.

The 19-year-old Jenner was Columbus' first pick, 37th overall, in the 2011 draft. He has 66 goals and 98 assists in 171 career OHL games with Oshawa, including 22 goals and 27 assists a year ago in 43 games while also serving as captain.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
