COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated forward Nathan Horton, goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky and defenceman Dalton Prout off the injured list.
To make room, the club reassigned forward Jonathan Marchessault, defenceman Tim Erixon and goaltender Mike McKenna to its American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.
Horton, a prized off-season free-agent signing, underwent shoulder surgery last summer. He has missed the first 40 games this season.
Bobrovsky, winner of last year’s Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goaltender, has been out since Dec. 3 with a strained groin. He has missed the last 12 games. He is 10-11-2 with a 2.72 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage this season.
Prout has missed the last six games with an upper body injury.
