Needing instant help on the blue line, Blue Jackets recall defenceman Frederic St. Denis

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled defenceman Frederic St. Denis from their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

St. Denis (saint deh-NEE) is expected to join the club prior to Saturday's game at Nashville.

The 28-year-old has nine goals and 15 assists with 28 penalty minutes and a plus-14 plus rating in 51 games with Springfield this season.

Before signing with Columbus in July 2013, the 5-foot-11, 192-pound native of Quebec spent four seasons in the Montreal Canadiens' organization.

The Blue Jackets are down two defencemen due to injuries.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
