  • Blue Jackets' Justin Danforth: Returning to action against Sens

    Danforth (lower body) will be back in the lineup versus Ottawa on Wednesday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

    Danforth returns to action following a two-game stint on the sidelined due to his lower-body issue. Prior to his absence, the 29-year-old winger managed just one goal in his last seven contests while averaging 12:26 of ice time.

If he doesn't return to this contest, his next chance to play is Friday versus the Wild, though the quick turnaround makes it iffy at best if he'll be able to suit up for that game.

    Danforth was called up from AHL Cleveland on Saturday, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
