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's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
