The Blue Jackets also recalled defenceman Tim Erixon from its American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass., and sent forward Cody Bass to their top minor league club.
Comeau has three goals and eight assists in 43 games with Columbus this season. He ranks second on the team in hits with 131. In 404 NHL games played with the Blue Jackets, Flames and Islanders, Comeau has 70 goals and 89 assists.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
