JAM and Erixon Called Up!

Tim Erixon
Due to injuries to Matt Calvert, Adrian Aucoin, Cam Atkinson, and Nikita Nikitin, two players were called up from Springfield this afternoon.  Forward Jonathan Audy-Marchessault (odie-marsh-a-so), affectionately known as JAM and defenseman Tim Erixon, both fresh off of AHL All-Star appearances should break into the line-up tomorrow night, along with David Savard who has been a healthy scratch for every game so far this year.

Rob Mixer has a nice article here.

A little youthful enthusiasm and some fresh legs won't hurt this squad, and the overall speed of the CBJ just increased.  On a personal level, I've wanted to see John Moore's minutes increase, as I feel he has been playing well.  Looks like that's going to happen.  I'm not sure how these guys were paired in Springfield, whether Moore and Erixon played together, or Moore and Savard, or Erixon and Savard.  I'm sure Brad Larsen down in Springfield has some thoughts, I hope our guys have the sense to talk with him.

So far the Springfield Falcons have weathered the loss of key players, and remain at the top of their division in the AHL.  I sure hope they can continue to do that after this latest blow, they are putting together an awesome season.

Tomorrow's game should be interesting and entertaining!

GO JACKETS!!

  1. Very excited to see JAM...I guess Erixon too. Will be interesting to see what happens once everyone is healthy if they play well
