      Analysis: The 26-year-old appeared in 18 games for the Blue Jackets and Wild in 2014-15, tallying one goal, one assist and 14 penalty minutes. Justin Falk, who was acquired from Minnesota in early March, will likely split time between the NHL and AHL again next season.

      Analysis: With the Blue Jackets shipping out two blueliners at the deadline (James Wisniewski and Jordan Leopold), an opening will exist for Justin Falk to stick with the parent club, likely for the rest of the season. He's expected to be in the lineup Tuesday against the Capitals, but don't expect him to deliver much use as a likely third-pairing defender. He was held without a point and put 10 shots on goal in his 13 games with the Wild earlier this season.
