Columbus Blue Jackets recall centre Nick Drazenovic from AHL affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled centre Nick Drazenovic from their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

The 26-year-old Drazenovic has 16 goals and 45 points in 46 games for the Falcons this season.

A native of Prince George, British Columbia, Drazenovic was originally signed by the Blue Jackets as an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2011, after spending four seasons with the St. Louis organization. The 6-foot-1, 192-pounder was scoreless in three games with the Blues. He'll be making his Blue Jackets debut when the club plays at Los Angeles on Friday.

Drazenovic was drafted by new Columbus general manager Jarmo Kekalainen when he was in charge of amateur scouting for the Blues in 2005.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
