COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets have added goaltender Tomas Popperle to the roster on emergency recall from the Syracuse Crunch, the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, Blue Jackets President and General Manager Doug MacLean announced today. The club also announced that goaltender Fredrik Norrena is day-to-day due to a groin injury he suffered in last night’s 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild.

Popperle, 22, has gone 13-13-3 with a 2.96 goals-against average, .900 save percentage and three shutouts in 29 games with Syracuse this season, which is his first playing in North America. Columbus fifth pick, 131st overall, in the 2005 Entry Draft spent last season playing in Germany, where he posted a 2.18 goals-against average in 33 regular season games and a 2.11 goals-against average and .927 save percentage in 11 playoff games with Eisbaren Berlin.

The Broumov, Czech Republic native split the 2004-05 season between the Czech Elite and the Czech-1 League. In the Elite League, he appeared in 25 games with Sparta Praha and posted a 15-9-1 record, 1.58 goals against average, and .949 save percentage. He led the league in goals against average and save percentage and ranked sixth in shutouts (four).
