Calvert put on IR, 2 called up by Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled center Jonathan Audy-Marchessault (OH-dee-MAHR-shuh-soh) and defenseman Tim Erixon from their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass, and have placed left wing Matt Calvert on injured reserve.

Calvert sustained an upper body injury in Monday's 2-1 home win over Dallas and is expected to be out about a week.

Audy-Marchessault, a free-agent signing last summer, leads Springfield with 16 goals and 29 assists in 42 games this season.

Acquired by the Blue Jackets as part of the deal that sent Rick Nash to the New York Rangers last summer, Erixon leads Springfield defensemen with five goals and 24 assists in 40 games.
