It has been a while since news of the Blue Jackets has been said. So here it goes.
Lake Erie Adds
With there being more injuries in Columbus, more players from Lake Erie have been recalled. Last week, Bill Zito signed former Blue Jacketd Manny Malhotra to an AHL tryout offer. Malhotra has previously played with Vancouver, San Jose, Carolina, and Montréal. Welcome back Manny.
Room for One More?
Jan Hejda is joining Malhotra in Cleveland. Hejda, an ex-Jacket, has played with Colorado and Edmonton in his career, even though he was drafted by Buffalo. He will join the Monsters soon.
Team Canada announced its preliminary roster for the World Junior Championships next month, and no Blue Jackets are on the roster. Oliver LeBlanc was the most likely Blue Jacket to make the squad, but that is not happening.
For team USA, on the other hand, there are a couple players that may make the team- Zach Werenski, Ryan Collins, Sonny Milano, and Paul Bittner.
