Columbus Blue Jackets reassign defenceman Cody Goloubef to AHL affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

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

The 23-year-old Goloubef has appeared in nine games with Columbus this season. He scored his first career NHL goal on Feb. 11 vs. San Jose.

The Blue Jackets' second pick, 37th overall, in the 2008 draft, Goloubef came to the big team when several blueliners were out with injury and played well. He has 11 goals and 29 assists in 122 career AHL games, including five goals and six assists in 24 games with Springfield this season.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
