Blue Jackets assign three players to Springfield
Two days after recalling them for a preseason game in Buffalo, the Blue Jackets have re-assigned three players to the Springfield Falcons.
Jonathan Marchessault, Sean Collins and Dalton Smith - the former two having played last night against the Carolina Hurricanes - are headed back to Springfield with Falcons training camp already in full swing. The Blue Jackets roster now stands at 33 players, a number that includes injured forward Nathan Horton.
Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards provided an injury update on Artem Anisimov after the game, saying he was removed for mainly precautionary purposes and any absence should be considered maintenance.
The Blue Jackets have Friday off, and most players will be participating the Blue Jackets Foundation's annual charity golf outing at Double Eagle. They are scheduled to return to practice on Saturday morning.
