Columbus Blue Jackets place D Jack Johnson on injured list, recall C Ryan Johansen from AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed defenceman Jack Johnson on injured reserve and recalled centre Ryan Johansen from their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Johnson has a goal and seven assists in 17 games this year while averaging over 26 minutes on the ice per game. He sustained an upper-body injury in Saturday night's 2-1 loss at St. Louis. He will be evaluated further by club doctors after the Blue Jackets return to Columbus at the end of a six-game road trip Sunday night at Chicago.

The 20-year-old Johansen has two assists in 10 games with the Blue Jackets this season and has totalled nine goals and 14 assists in 77 career NHL games with Columbus.

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.
