Blue Jackets send Stefan Legein, Nikita Filatov to team's AHL affiliate

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets assigned forward Stefan Legein and forward Nikita Filatov to the club's AHL affiliate in Syracuse on Tuesday.

Legein was Columbus' second pick in the 2007 draft. After helping Canada win the 2008 World Juniors and having a productive season at Niagara of the Ontario Hockey League, he told the Blue Jackets last summer he was quitting hockey because he had lost the desire to play.

The 20-year-old Legein has since said he made a mistake and wants to prove himself to the Blue Jackets organization.

The 18-year-old Filatov was the sixth overall pick in last summer's draft. He had eight goals and three assists in seven games as Russia's captain at the 2009 World Juniors.
