Blue Jackets put Calvert on injured list, recall Audy-Marchessault and Erixon from Springfield

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.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
