Columbus adds Andrew Murray, sits down Fedorov, acquires Rycroft

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets had a busy Tuesday, making a 2-for-1 trade of minor-leaguers, activating centre Andrew Murray and putting centre Sergei Fedorov on the injured list.

Fedorov, the club's third-leading scorer with eight goals and 19 assists in 46 games, sustained a concussion during a recent game and missed the last two games while complaining of nausea. The 38-year-old ranks among the top 50 all-time in the NHL in goals, assists and points, winning the Hart Trophy as league MVP in 1994.

Murray, 26, played well for the Blue Jackets after his NHL debut on Dec. 27, picking up two goals in six games. He has not played since suffering a concussion at St. Louis on Jan. 8.

The Blue Jackets also traded minor-leaguers Darcy Campbell and Philippe Dupuis to the Colorado Avalanche for right wing Mark Rycroft on Tuesday.

Rycroft was then sent to Columbus' American Hockey League affiliate in Syracuse.

Rycroft, 29, has appeared in 226 career NHL games with St. Louis and Colorado and has 21 goals and 25 assists, including six goals and six assists with the Avalanche last season.

Campbell, a 23-year-old defenceman, has one goal and five assists in 28 games for Syracuse this season.

Dupuis, 22, has seven goals and four assists in 29 games for the Crunch this season.
