The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled forward Geoff Platt from the Syracuse Crunch, the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, club President and General Manager Doug MacLean announced Saturday. Platt is expected to join the club and be available to play in tonight’s game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Last night, he scored two goals in the Crunch’s 5-3 loss at Hamilton.

A native of Mississauga, Ontario, Platt has collected 36-39-75 and 68 penalty minutes in 76 career AHL games. He tallied 106-86-192 and 268 penalty minutes in 248 career Ontario Hockey League games with North Bay, Saginaw and Erie during his junior career before signing as a free agent with Columbus on Nov. 25, 2005.
