Blue Jackets place right wing Cam Atkinson on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 23

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed right wing Cam Atkinson on injured reserve, retroactive to Jan. 23.

Atkinson is day-to-day with a lower-body injury sustained during training camp. Coach Todd Richards said Atkinson may be out at least a week or two.

The 5-foot-7, 172-pound native of Riverside, Conn., has one goal in three games this season after playing most of last season with Springfield, Mass., of the American Hockey League. He has appeared in 30 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets the past two seasons, registering eight goals and seven assists.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
