Blue Jackets Recall Bodnarchuk From Lake Erie

The Columbus Blue Jackets announced today that defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk has been recalled from the club’s AHL-affiliate Lake Erie Monsters.

The recall was made in the wake of losing two defensemen in last night’s 4-0 win over the Nashville Predators. Fedor Tyutin took an elbow to the face and is questionable for Sunday’s game versus the San Jose Sharks. Cody Goloubef took a puck to the mouth and was transported to Dublin Methodist Hospital with a fractured jaw. Goloubef will have surgery today and is out indefinitely. Both injuries happened in the first period Friday night.

Bodnarchuk leads Lake Erie defensemen and is tied for fourth on the club in points (8), with two goals and six assists. In 14 games with the Monsters, he has accumulated 10 penalty minutes and has a plus/minus of plus-1. The 27 year-old defenseman signed with the Blue Jackets in 2015 and was assigned to the Lake Erie Monsters from training camp. He was originally selected by the Boston Bruins with their fifth pick, 128th overall, in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
