COLUMBUS, OHIO -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have reassigned forward Cody Bass to the American Hockey League’s Springfield Falcons, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced tonight. Bass skated in his first NHL game of 2013-14 earlier this evening against Buffalo.
Bass, 27, has scored two goals and dished out seven assists for nine points with 61 penalty minutes and a +5 plus/minus rating in 26 games with Springfield this season.
