Down They Go

The Columbus Blue Jackets today assigned seven players to the Syracuse Crunch, the club's minor-league affiliate in the American Hockey League. Blue Jackets president and general manager Doug MacLean says forwards Dan Fritsche, Steven Goertzen, Nikolai Zherdev, Geoff Platt and Joe Motzko were assigned to the Crunch. They will be joined by defenseman Ole-Kristian Tollefsen and goaltender Pascal Leclaire. MacLean said that the assignments were made because the Blue Jackets have a week off between games and this was a way to keep them playing in the break
