Columbus Blue Jackets activate Matt Calvert, send Jonathan Audy-Marchessault back to AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated left wing Matt Calvert off injured reserve and have reassigned centre Jonathan Audy-Marchessault (OH'-dee-MAHR'-shuh-soh) to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Calvert, scoreless in six games this season, missed Columbus' last three games as a result of a lower body injury suffered Jan. 28 vs. Dallas.

The 22-year-old Audy-Marchessault made his NHL debut on Thursday vs. St. Louis after being recalled from Springfield a day earlier. The 5-foot-9, 175-pound forward also skated in Saturday's 4-2 home win over Detroit. Named the AHL's player of the month for January, Audy-Marchessault has a team-high 45 points on 16 goals and 29 assists in 42 games with the Falcons.

Quote of the Day

He's a special guy. Obviously we are lucky to have him. Just his talent, I'm not surprised anymore. You get to see this guy every practice, and you know what he's able to do. Obviously, it's pretty special for a guy that young to score a hat trick in playoffs, this type of a game too. Really happy for him.
