The Columbus Blue Jackets activated forward Marian Gaborik off injured reserve Wednesday and he will return to the lineup for their game Thursday at the New Jersey Devils.

Gaborik has been limited to 18 games this season, one since Nov. 14. He returned from a knee injury Dec. 21 against the Philadelphia Flyers but suffered a broken collarbone in the first period while setting up Ryan Johansen's goal and has been out since.

Gaborik, acquired by the Blue Jackets from the New York Rangers at the 2013 NHL Trade Deadline, has five goals and 12 points this season.

Quote of the Day

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.

— Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville on Brandon Saad, who was traded by Chicago to the Columbus Blue Jackets this offseason
