Blue Jackets put right wing Derek Dorsett on IR, recall John Moore from AHL affiliate

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed right wing Derek Dorsett on injured reserve and recalled defenceman John Moore from their AHL affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

General manager Scott Howson announced the moves on Thursday.

Dorsett sustained a head injury during a fall in the game against Colorado on Feb. 11. He practised with the team on Thursday and is listed as day to day.

Moore, the club's first-round draft pick in 2009, is making his second trip to the big club. Playing in his first professional season, he made his NHL debut on Feb. 5 and then was sent down earlier this week.

The team is already without centre Derek Brassard, who will miss two or three weeks because of a hand injury.
