- Aaron Portzline via twitter: The Blue Jackets have sent Ryan Johansen to Springfield of the AHL. Johansen had 2 assists in 10 games.
“He started strong, but we think his play has tailed off,” Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson said. “He looks like he’s struggling offensively. This isn’t all about getting points, it’s about getting chances and making an impact offensive. I just think he’s struggling confidence-wise offensively. We decided to send him down to find his game.”
