Columbus Blue Jackets assign centre Boone Jenner to AHL Springfield Falcons for playoff run

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have assigned prized centre Boone Jenner to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass., in time for the playoffs.

Jenner's Ontario Hockey League club, the Oshawa Generals, was eliminated from the playoffs on Tuesday night.

The 19-year-old Jenner was Columbus' first pick, 37th overall, in the 2011 draft. The 6-foot-2, 204-pound centre had 111 goals and 135 assists, 263 penalty minutes and a cumulative +22 plus/minus rating in 227 career OHL games.

He scored a goal in five appearances with Springfield at the end of the 2011-12 season. Jenner, a native of Dorchester, Ontario, competed on the past two IIHF World Junior Championships as a member of Team Canada.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
