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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
