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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
