Columbus Blue Jackets claim backup goalie Wade Dubielewicz

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets claimed goaltender Wade Dubielewicz off waivers from the New York Islanders on Saturday and assigned goaltender Dan LaCosta to the club's American Hockey League affiliate in Syracuse.

Dubielewicz will back up rookie star Steve Mason while Pascal Leclaire's status remains uncertain. Leclaire has an ankle injury that may require season-ending surgery.

The 29-year-old Dubielewicz has a 16-13-2 record, a 2.55 goals-against average and .920 save percentage in 37 career NHL games with the Islanders. He spent the first part of this season with Kazan Ak-Bars of the Russian Kontinental Hockey League, but was signed Thursday by the Islanders after backup Joey MacDonald joined starter Rick DiPietro on the injured list.

The 22-year-old LaCosta was added to the roster on emergency recall on Jan. 8, but didn't appear in a game.
