More Columbus shuffling: Aucoin on IR, Goloubef recalled

At this point, 2012 first-round pick Ryan Murray would probably get a chance to crack the Columbus Blue Jackets’ injury-ravaged lineup … but he’s injured, too.

With Adrian Aucoin‘s lower-body injury pushing him to the IR on Monday, the team recalled Cody Goloubef from the AHL. Goloubef, 23, might be a relative unknown but he’ll fit in on the blueline for at least one reason: he missed six weeks with a broken finger earlier in 2012-13, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

Another blueliner John Moore (lower-body) faces an uncertain status for Tuesday’s game, so maybe it would just be easier to list the hasty additions and the guys who are on the shelf:

Injured

Aucoin, 39, is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Moore, 22, is day-to-day with a lower-body injury as well.

James Wisniewski, 28, is out indefinitely with what might be a concussion.

Nikita Nikitin, 26, is on the injured reserve with an upper-body issue.

Slightly new to totally new additions

  • Golubef hasn’t played an NHL game yet.
  • Tim Erixon, 21, has recently been recalled.
  • David Savard, 22, looks primed to move from healthy scratch to in the lineup.
  • Nick Holden, 25, played five games in 2010-11.

The bright side

The team finally got a chance to practice on Monday. Oh, and apparently Jared Boll makes a delicious Mexican dip.

(Hey, a bright side doesn’t have to be that bright, does it?)
