Columbus Blue Jackets reassign defenceman Nick Holden to Springfield, Mass., Falcons of AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have reassigned defenceman Nick Holden to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Holden recorded 17:19 total ice time and had a plus-1 rating in two games with Columbus. He had four goals and 18 assists in 44 games with Springfield prior to his brief call-up due to injuries to veteran defencemen.

Holden was originally signed by the Blue Jackets as a free agent on March 28, 2008. The 6-foot-4, 207-pound blue-liner signed a one-year contract extension with Columbus in each of the past two summers.

He is scoreless in seven career NHL games.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
