TRANSACTIONS: #CBJ have recalled G Joonas Korpisalo from his conditioning assignment and activated him off Injured Reserve. The club has also assigned G Matiss Kivlenieks and F Calvin Thurkauf to @monstershockey.https://t.co/uRGyhUyud0— CBJ Public Relations (@BlueJacketsPR) February 23, 2020
Please don’t suck anymore, Jackets.
Player to Watch
uh.... good question
Brady Tkachuk, I guess?
Mostly watch out for him. With 104 PIMs to his credit this season and an ejection in a shutout on Saturday night, he’ll likely be looking to make his mark on the game in some way.
Korpisalo is back after missing the previous 24 games due to a knee injury suffered against the Chicago Blackhawks ... Korpisalo is 17-10-4 on the season ... Markus Nutivaara has 1-4-5 in his last six games ... Stefan Matteau has two points (one goal and one assist) in two games since he was brought up by the Blue Jackets
The Other Bench
The Senators were shut out in their last outing by the Montreal Canadiens 3-0 ... In the game, the Senators lost Thomas Chabot to an injury but the Senators are optimistic that he can recover and play in tonight’s game ... Brady Tkachuk was ejected from the Senators’ last game after running one of the Canadiens into the boards late in the game in a blowout loss
