Columbus Blue Jackets activate defenceman Adrian Aucoin after missing 6 games with injury

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated defenceman Adrian Aucoin off of injured reserve after he missed the last six games with a lower-body injury.

The 39-year-old Aucoin was signed as an unrestricted free agent this past summer.

He has appeared in 1,079 career NHL games with Vancouver (341), Tampa Bay (26), the New York Islanders (235), Chicago (92), Calgary (157), Phoenix (221) and Columbus (7). Aucoin ranks 12th among all active NHL blueliners with 395 career points (121 goals).

A native of Ottawa, Ontario, Aucoin won a silver medal at the 1994 Winter Olympics after spending two seasons (1992-94) with the Canadian National Team and has appeared in 62 career Stanley Cup playoff games (6 goals, 15 assists).

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
