The Blue Jackets assigned defenseman David Savard to Springfield and recalled defenseman Dalton Prout. Prout, 22, was sixth-round pick in 2010. He has 4-8-12 and 52 PIM in 60 games with Springfield this season. Prout, 6-3 and 221 pounds, is slated to make his NHL debut on Friday against Florida.
You have to love a franchise who honors a player whose only feat with the team was 663 penalty minutes in only 94 games.
Damn, I miss the Chill ... where my true love of hockey really began.
Can't go wrong tonight for me ... either the Jackets win one for the Chill, or the Panthers win one and put the Crapitals at a little bit more of a disadvantage.
My guess is the Jackets start to get hot again and win this one 3-2.
I got to town in '67, so the Checkers were already here. I followed them, then the Seals, the Owls, and, finally, the Chill. For me, Columbus has almost always had pro hockey, so there's no question that the NHL belongs here.
