Blue Jackets activate Huselius from IR

The Columbus Blue Jackets activated forward Kristian Huselius from injured reserve on Friday.

Huselius has missed the season's first 25 games after he underwent successful surgery to repair a torn right pectoral muscle in July. The veteran Swede suffered the injury while lifting weights during off-season training in his home country.

Due to a lower-body injury, Huselius played in a career-low 39 games last season, scoring 14 goals with nine assists.

In 660 career games with Florida, Calgary and Columbus, the 33-year-old former second-round draft pick of the Panthers has compiled 190 goals and 261 helpers.
