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

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
