COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated left wing Raffi Torres off injured reserve after he missed 19 games following arthroscopic knee surgery.
Torres was expected to be in the lineup when the Blue Jackets play the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.
The 27-year-old has 68 goals and 62 assists in 321 career NHL games with Columbus, Edmonton and the New York Islanders.
Torres has one goal and three assists in 14 games with the Blue Jackets this season. He missed the first 10 games of the season after injuring a shoulder in a preseason game against Chicago.
Torres was acquired from the Oilers last July in a deal for Gilbert Brule.
