COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets reassigned defencemen Cody Goloubef and Tim Erixon to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass., on Saturday

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound blueliner has six goals and 14 assists in 41 games with the Falcons this season. He was the Blue Jackets' second pick, 37th overall, at the 2008 NHL draft.

The 22-year-old Erixon has registered four goals and 20 assists in 27 games with Springfield in 2013-14. He skated in two games for Columbus earlier this season. In 51 career NHL appearances with the Blue Jackets and New York Rangers, Erixon has seven assists.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
