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

It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
