Blue Jackets recall D Dalton Prout from Springfield to fill in for Tyutin

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled defenceman Dalton Prout from their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Prout may fill in for Fedor Tyutin, who missed Thursday's practice with an undisclosed illness.

The 23-year-old Prout has two assists, 31 penalty minutes and 41 blocked shots in 25 games with Columbus this season. He had a goal and six assists with 27 penalty minutes and a plus-15 rating in 28 games with the Blue Jackets last season.

Columbus' seventh pick, 154th overall, in the 2010 NHL draft, the 6-foot-3, 222-pound Prout has one goal and eight assists in 58 career NHL games.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
