Blue Jackets place Gibbons on IR, recall two

Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday placed forward Brian Gibbons on injured reserve and recalled two players from Springfield of the American Hockey League.

Gibbons suffered a knee injury in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals, and is expected to miss 2-to-3 weeks. The Boston College product has recorded just five assists in 21 games for the struggling club this season.

Columbus promoted forward Alexander Wennberg and defenseman Cody Goloubef. Wennberg has totaled a combined six assists in 27 games between the minors and the NHL thus far in his initial North American campaign.
