Columbus Blue Jackets reassign defenceman Tim Erixon to Springfield, Mass., of AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have reassigned defenceman Tim Erixon to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Erixon skated in two games for Columbus earlier this season and was a healthy scratch in the Blue Jackets' 5-2 win over Washington on Thursday night.

He has four goals and 19 assists and a +6 plus/minus rating in 25 games with Springfield in 2013-14.

In 51 career NHL appearances with the Blue Jackets and New York Rangers, Erixon has seven assists.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
