Prout recalled as CBJ place Tyutin on IR
The Blue Jackets announced Monday they have placed defenseman Fedor Tyutin on Injured Reserve and recalled Dalton Prout from Springfield of the AHL.
Tyutin is nursing an ankle injury suffered while playing for Russia in the just-completed Olympic Games. He is expected to miss two or three weeks.
He is tied for third on the team with a plus-6 rating in 53 games for Columbus this season and has tallied 24 points, including 20 assists.
The 23-year-old Prout has appeared in 27 games for the Blue Jackets this season and posted a pair of assists while blocking 43 shots and being assessed 33 penalty minutes.
Columbus concludes the Olympic break Thursday with a trip to New Jersey to take on the Devils.
