Fedor Tyutin Activated Off IR; Should Play Saturday

The Jackets announced that the defenseman is coming off IR; Cody Goloubef goes back to Springfield.

The Blue Jackets announced earlier today that defenseman Fedor Tyutin has been activated off of the IR list on Friday. Cody Goloubef was sent back to Springfield after Thursday night's game to make room on the roster.

This presumes that Tyutin will be on the ice Saturday against Minnesota, though where in the lineup he'll slot in remains to be seen. Having hurt his ankle, one assumes his conditioning will need a boost, and that might preclude him from top-pairing minutes right away. That said, I wouldn't be surprised to see him back with Jack Johnson on the top pairing.
