Columbus Blue Jackets activate Jared Boll from injured list, assign Anton Forsberg to AHL team

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated forward Jared Boll off injured reserve after he missed 45 games with a torn tendon in his ankle.

The club also assigned goaltender Anton Forsberg to its American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Boll, the longest-serving Blue Jackets player, has played in 21 games this season with one goal and 38 penalty minutes. With 1,001 penalty minutes, he is second in team history to Jody Shelley's 1,025.

Forsberg's Swedish Hockey League team, MODO Hockey, was eliminated from Le Mat Trophy contention last week. He was Columbus' sixth pick, 188th overall, in the 2011 NHL draft.

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
