Columbus Blue Jackets reassign C Nick Drazenovic to Springfield Falcons of AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have reassigned centre Nick Drazenovic to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

The 26-year-old was added to the club's roster on emergency recall on March 8.

Drazenovic didn't have a point in seven games with Columbus. He has 16 goals and 30 assists in 47 games with Springfield this season.

He ranks second on the Falcons in assists, points and power-play goals (nine) and is tied for fourth in goals. In 41 games with Springfield last season, Drazenovic had 13 goals and 28 assists.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.

— Capitals coach Barry Trotz on Alex Ovechkin, who enters February tied for the NHL lead in goals
