COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Jeff Carter, the Columbus Blue Jackets' major offseason acquisition, has a hairline crack on the top of his right foot and may be held out of Tuesday's home game against Dallas.
The club listed him as day to day.
In addition, general manager Scott Howson announced on Monday that forward Matt Calvert has been assigned to the Blue Jackets' American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.
