COLUMBUS, OHIO --- The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled defenseman Tim Erixon from the American Hockey League’s Springfield Falcons, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today. Erixon is expected to join the club in time for tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins at CONSOL Energy Center.

Erixon, 22, was recalled by Columbus on November 17 and was +1 in 18:05 of action at Vancouver on November 22 in his lone appearance with the club before being reassigned on November 29. The 6-2, 200-pound defenseman leads Springfield in scoring this season with 16 points on three goals and 13 assists. He has added six penalty minutes with a +6 plus/minus rating in 14 games.

Acquired by Columbus in a trade with the New York Rangers on July 23, 2012, Erixon has registered 0-7-7, +3 in 50 career NHL games and 11-67-78, 102 PIM and is +20 in 106 career AHL games. Originally selected by Calgary in the first round, 23rd overall, of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, he tallied 0-5-5, 14 penalty minutes and was +4 in 31 games with the Jackets in 2012-13 and added 5-24-29 and a +9 rating in 40 games with the Falcons.

He was a member of Team East at the 2013 AHL All-Star Classic and was voted into the starting lineup by fans.

The Blue Jackets return to action tonight when they visit the Penguins in a game that will be televised nationally on NBC Sports Network at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will also be broadcast live on the Blue Jackets Radio Network, including flagship station Sports Radio 97.1 The Fan, and online at BlueJackets.com.
