COLUMBUS, OHIO -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled forward Jack Skille from the American Hockey League’s Springfield Falcons, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.

Skille appeared in one game with Columbus earlier this season, recording one hit, one shot and one takeaway in 7:33 of action on October 19 at Washington. He has tallied 2-1-3 and a +1 plus/minus rating in six games with Springfield thus far in the 2013-14 campaign.

Skille was Chicago’s first pick, seventh overall, at the 2005 NHL Draft. The 6-1, 215-pound winger has recorded 20 goals and 29 assists for 49 points with 73 penalty minutes in 179 NHL career games with the Blue Jackets, Blackhawks and Florida Panthers. In 40 games with Florida in 2012-13, Skille tallied 3-9-12, 11 penalty minutes and 96 hits, which was the second-highest total on the team.

A native of Madison, Wisconsin, Skille won a bronze medal with Team USA at the 2007 IIHF World Junior Championships and helped the Americans capture gold at the 2005 IIHF World U18 Championships. He also won a national championship with the University of Wisconsin in 2006 after leading all Badgers freshman in scoring with 13-8-21 and 37 penalty minutes in 41 games.

The Blue Jackets return to action later today when they open a five-game road trip against the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre. Game time is 1 p.m. ET with live coverage on FOX Sports Ohio HD beginning with the Blue Jackets Live pre-game show at 12:30 p.m. The game will also be broadcast live on the Columbus Blue Jackets Radio Network, including flagship station Sports Radio 97.1 The Fan in Columbus, and online at BlueJackets.com.
