Blue Jackets cut 2 to get down to 23-man roster

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Columbus Blue Jackets have reassigned promising forward Boone Jenner to his junior team and newly acquired defenseman Tim Erixon to Springfield, Mass., of the American Hockey League.

The moves allowed the Blue Jackets to get down to the 23-man limit for their opener at Nashville on Saturday night.

The 19-year-old Jenner is the club's second-round pick in the 2011 draft who has put up big numbers with Oshawa of the Ontario Hockey League.

The 21-year-old Erixon played mostly in the AHL a year ago and sparingly with the New York Rangers. He was acquired in July along with forwards Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov and a first-round pick for Rick Nash, minor-league defenseman Steve Delisle and a conditional third-round pick in the draft.

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.
