Here’s a roundup of the latest goings on around the NHL…

Columbus recalls Erixon

Tim Erixon is once again back in Columbus. The Blue Jackets recalled the 22-year-old defenseman from AHL Springfield just days after sending him down. Erixon has played in just two games with the Blue Jackets this season. With Springfield he has 24 points in 27 games.

Emmerton clears waivers, sent to Grand Rapids

Red Wings forward Cory Emmerton made his way through waivers and his reward for that was a free trip to Grand Rapids. Emmerton had been out with an injured finger, but now that he’s healthy he had to go through waivers to be sent down. Considering Detroit’s injury problems this season, he might be back sooner than not.

Predators send down Moser, Sissons

The Nashville Predators sent down a pair of players to AHL Milwaukee. Forwards Simon Moser and Colton Sissons are headed back to the minors after a brief stay in the NHL.

Sissons played in three games and had one assists and Moser saw 10 minutes of action in the one game he played in and had no points. We’ll see more of Moser in Sochi as he’s a member of the Swiss Olympic team.

    Wow, Erixon is really producing in Springfield, 24 points in 27 games for a defenseman. He was interesting piece of the Rick Nash trade, haven’t really followed his development so I don’t know how he’s been playing in the NHL. Anyone Blue Jackets fans have any insight?

    A Rangers fan here- Tim Erixon is the son of former Ranger Jan Erixon.
    There was much fanfare when he signed in NY, but needed time to get use to the smaller North American ice and the speed of the game here. He was kind of forced into the lineup too soon here and struggled, but showed signs of promise.
    This was a blue chip hidden piece of the Nash trade. Now he has had a year under his belt and looks like some of that potential is starting to come to fruition. I believe that if he is anything like his dad, he will be a very good player in the near future.

    lowenni – he’s been good. CBJ have two or three defenseman in his skill range, however he goes back and forth from the AHL because he is the only one that does not have to clear waivers. Next year he should be a permanent roster player.
