Columbus Blue Jackets assign defenceman Dalton Prout of Springfield, Mass., of AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have assigned defenceman Dalton Prout to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass. on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Prout has two assists, 31 penalty minutes and 41 blocked shots in 25 games with Columbus this season. He tallied one goal and six assists with 27 penalty minutes and a +15 rating in 28 games with the Blue Jackets during the 2012-13 campaign, leading the club in plus/minus while ranking second among rookie NHL defencemen.

A native of Kingsville, Ontario, Prout was Columbus' seventh pick, 154th overall, in the 2010 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
