COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated left wing Matt Calvert off of Injured Reserve and reassigned center Jonathan Audy-Marchessault to the American Hockey League’s Springfield Falcons, club Executive Vice President and General Manager Scott Howson announced today. Calvert, who has recorded eight shots on goal in six appearances this season, has missed Columbus’ last three games as a result of a lower body injury suffered on January 28 vs. Dallas.

Audy-Marchessault, 22, made his NHL debut on January 31 vs. St. Louis after being recalled from Springfield a day earlier. The 5-9, 175-pound forward also skated in Saturday’s 4-2 home win over Detroit and averaged 10:56 TOI during his two appearances with the Jackets. Named the AHL’s Player of the Month for January, Audy-Marchessault has recorded a team-high 16-29-45 in 42 games played with the Falcons this season.
