COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -The Columbus Blue Jackets activated defenseman Rostislav Klesla off injured reserve Tuesday.
He had missed the past several weeks with a high ankle sprain. His return will bolster a roster already missing several top players.
Klesla has one goal and two assists with eight penalty minutes in 11 games with the Blue Jackets this season. The fourth overall pick in the 2000 draft - the franchise's first pick ever - has 36 goals and 73 assists in 421 career NHL games, all with the Blue Jackets.
