COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed defenseman Adrian Aucoin on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 29 and have recalled defenseman Cody Goloubef (GOH’-luh-behf) from the team’s American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.
Aucoin, scoreless with two penalty minutes in seven games this season, suffered a lower body injury at Minnesota on Jan. 29 and is listed as day-to-day.
