Blue Jackets activate forward Brandon Dubinsky after he missed 11 games with knee injury

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated forward Brandon Dubinsky after he missed 11 games with a knee injury.

Dubinsky, who is available when the club opens a five-game homestand on Tuesday night against Vancouver, was injured in the Blue Jackets' Feb. 16 game at Phoenix.

The 26-year-old, acquired in the deal that sent Rick Nash to the New York Rangers last summer, has one goal, seven assists and 39 penalty minutes in 15 games this season. He was riding a three-game point streak (1-3-4) prior to suffering the injury.

The Anchorage, Alaska, native has 82 goals and 139 assists in 408 career NHL games.

Quote of the Day
