Blue Jackets activate goalie Sanford, send goalie York to Springfield of AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated goaltender Curtis Sanford off injured reserve and assigned goalie Allen York to the club's AHL affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

The 32-year-old Sanford has appeared in 109 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets, St. Louis and Vancouver, going 37-37-11.

York has appeared in four games for the Blue Jackets this year, going 0-1-0 with a 3.53 goals-against average and a .878 save percentage.
