The Columbus Blue Jackets aren’t just dealing with turmoil in their front office. They’ve been hit hard by injuries during the 2013 season, as well.
Add Brassard, 25, to the forward ranks that include Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov. Their defense is less banged up than it was earlier this season, but two of their highest paid guys (Jack Johnson and James Wisniewski) are on the shelf.
Brassard has been reasonably productive this season, scoring three goals and 10 points in 19 games.
