The Columbus Blue Jackets have assigned forward Cam Atkinson to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.
General manager Scott Howson announced the move on Thursday.
The 22-year-old Atkinson has appeared in four games with the Blue Jackets this season and scored his first NHL goal against Vancouver on Monday. He made his NHL debut with the club Oct. 7 against Nashville. He appeared in five games with Springfield at the end of the 2010-11 season and had three goals and two assists.
He was Columbus' eighth pick, 157th overall, in the 2008 draft.

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, Now, as he enters his ninth NHL season, Nash finally has a bona-fide, No. 1 center with him. It didn’t take too long, right? Nash doesn’t worry about the past. He’s pumped about this season and playing alongside Carter.
“To get Carter is huge,” said Nash. “It’s what [management] said they wanted to do and for them to do it is big.”

It’s almost a week into the season and the Jackets turned me into a hermit. It’s been six days since the home opener at Nationwide Arena and six days since the Blue Jackets looked like the team from the preseason and what we’ve all been hoping for. The great power play we were to have this year hasn’t potted a goal yet; accredited to the overkill of an eight game suspension...

According to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Blue Jackets, there's a small army of scouts taking in a Wednesday night affair between the Colorado Avalanche and Columbus Blue Jackets. Apparently, franchises around the National Hockey League have caught wind about a player or players on the Columbus Blue Jackets trading block.

It was late in the third period. The Avs were down 2-1 to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Semyon Varlamov was pulled. Things looked bleak, very bleak. Then, salvation came from the stick of Jan Hejda and the skate of Gabriel Landeskog.
Hejda, in his first game facing his old team, fired a puck from the left point which deflected off the skate of rookie Landeskog for his first NHL goal...

In light of their recent downfall the Columbus Blue Jackets have given its fans a couple distractions. When there’s no glory in a losing streak to open the regular season with you might as well give the fans what they want, rock music and an intro to the season that has already began. I can’t tell you how amped and overjoyed I am to see the video they played on the jumbotron...
So obvious stuff first, what a way for Landeskog to get his first goal (even if he didn't shoot it in). His line (with Factor and Winnik) has been the Avs most consistant line over the first three games by far.
This was the first game we saw Varly come with less than his best stuff. I liked the way he battled through it and bottom line, he gave the Avs a chance to win...
While the Dallas Stars and Columbus Blue Jackets are both unhappy with their play, their results are vastly different.
The Stars look to begin 4-0 at home for the first time in 13 years Saturday night when they meet the winless Blue Jackets in the opener of a home-and-home set.
Dallas (3-1-0) has won all three home games under rookie coach Glen Gulutzan to take the early lead in...
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Gabriel Landeskog scored his first NHL goal with 40 seconds left and Steve Duchene's shootout goal was
the difference in the Colorado Avalanche 's 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday night before 8,986, the
smallest crowd to watch a regular-season game at Nationwide Arena.
The same old songPeople starting talking up the Jackets based on some exciting off-season signings. The expensive and yet-to-play-due-to-suspension James Wisniewski and Jeff Carter. The signings cannot hide what people who follow the team know. The team lacks scoring punch, the power play is horrid, and Steve Mason is usually the only hope for victory. Less than 9,000 people came...
