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

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
