Jackets cut 2 to get down to 23-man roster
January 17, 2013
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Columbus Blue Jackets have reassigned promising forward Boone Jenner to his junior team and newly acquired defenseman Tim Erixon to Springfield, Mass., of the American Hockey League.
The moves allowed the Blue Jackets to get down to the 23-man limit for their opener at Nashville on Saturday night.
The 19-year-old Jenner is the club's second-round pick in the 2011 draft who has put up big numbers with Oshawa of the Ontario Hockey League.
The 21-year-old Erixon played mostly in the AHL a year ago and sparingly with the New York Rangers. He was acquired in July along with forwards Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov and a first-round pick for Rick Nash, minor-league defenseman Steve Delisle and a conditional third-round pick in the draft.
