COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated left wing Matt Calvert off injured reserve and have reassigned centre Jonathan Audy-Marchessault to their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Calvert, scoreless in six games this season, missed Columbus' last three games as a result of a lower body injury suffered Jan. 28 vs. Dallas.

The 22-year-old Audy-Marchessault made his NHL debut on Thursday vs. St. Louis after being recalled from Springfield a day earlier. The 5-foot-9, 175-pound forward also skated in Saturday's 4-2 home win over Detroit. Named the AHL's player of the month for January, Audy-Marchessault has a team-high 45 points on 16 goals and 29 assists in 42 games with the Falcons.
