Carlsson put pen to paper on a two-year contract with Columbus on Friday. Carlsson's deal will be twovway for 2020-21 before converting to a one-way pact in the second year. As such, Carlsson could spend some time in the minors this year with AHL Cleveland, though he'll certainly get the opportunity to earn a spot on the 23-man roster during training camp.
The Blue Jackets recalled Carlsson from AHL Cleveland on Saturday. The Blue Jackets have three blueliners on injured reserve, so Carlsson will add depth heading into Saturday's game versus the Predators. He's watched 11 straight NHL games from the press box, so it's unsettled whether he'll draw into the lineup.
Columbus sent Carlsson to AHL Cleveland on Friday. Ryan Murray (back) appears to be closing in on a return to the lineup, so Carlsson could be in for an extended stay in the minors. The 23-year-old blueliner will, however, likely be recalled ahead of the postseason if the Blue Jackets are able to hang on to a playoff spot.
Carlsson was promoted from AHL Cleveland on Wednesday. Carlsson will likely continue to move between leagues due to the injuries to Ryan Murray (back), Seth Jones (ankle) and Dean Kukan (knee). Once the Jackets get one of the aforementioned blueliners back from IR, Carlsson figures to spend the rest of the year in the minors.
Carlsson was sent down to AHL Cleveland on Monday. Carlsson was promoted to the NHL on Monday morning and served as the seventh defenseman for the Blue Jackets' tilt against the Lightning. The team is still dealing with several injuries on the blue line, so the 6-foot-5 defenseman could be recalled again soon.
