Blue Jackets cut 2 to get down to 23-man roster

The Columbus Blue Jackets have reassigned promising forward
Boone Jenner to his junior team and newly acquired defenseman Tim
Erixon to Springfield, Mass., of the American Hockey League.

The moves allowed the Blue Jackets to get down to the 23-man
limit for their opener at Nashville on Saturday night.

The 19-year-old Jenner is the club’s second-round pick in the
2011 draft who has put up big numbers with Oshawa of the Ontario
Hockey League.

The 21-year-old Erixon played mostly in the AHL a year ago and
sparingly with the New York Rangers. He was acquired in July along
with forwards Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov and a first-round
pick for Rick Nash, minor-league defenseman Steve Delisle and a
conditional third-round pick in the draft.
