COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled centre Jonathan Audy-Marchessault (OH-dee-MAHR-shuh-soh) and defenceman Tim Erixon from their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass, and have placed left wing Matt Calvert on injured reserve
Calvert sustained an upper body injury in Monday's 2-1 home win over Dallas and is expected to be out about a week.
Audy-Marchessault, a free-agent signing last summer, leads Springfield with 16 goals and 29 assists in 42 games this season.
Acquired by the Blue Jackets as part of the deal that sent Rick Nash to the New York Rangers last summer, Erixon leads Springfield defencemen with five goals and 24 assists in 40 games.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
