Blue Jackets activate centre Andrew Murray, send Alexandre Picard to Syracuse

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated centre Andrew Murray off injured reserve and assigned forward Alexandre Picard to the club's AHL affiliate in Syracuse.

General manager Scott Howson announced the moves on Saturday.

The 27-year-old Murray, who has missed most of the season with a shoulder injury, has one assist in six games. Last year, he had eight goals and three assists in 67 games with the Blue Jackets.

Picard did not record a point in his one game appearance.
