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.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
