Blue Jackets put veteran defenceman Aucoin on injured reserve, activate Goloubef from AHL

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed defenceman Adrian Aucoin on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 29 and have recalled defenceman Cody Goloubef (GOH'-luh-behf) from the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Aucoin, scoreless with two penalty minutes in seven games this season, suffered a lower body injury at Minnesota on Jan. 29 and is listed as day-to-day.

The Blue Jackets are without injured defencemen Nikita Nikitin (upper body) and James Wisniewski (concussion, back and leg pain).

Goloubef has four goals and six assists with 28 penalty minutes and a plus-9 rating in 21 games with Springfield this season. The 23-year-old was Columbus' second pick, 37th overall, in the 2008 draft.
