DRAZENOVIC RECALLED BY BLUE JACKETS
Springfield, Mass. - The Springfield Falcons announced on Friday that center Nick Drazenovic has been recalled on an emergency basis by their NHL affiliate, the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Drazenovic, who was assigned to Springfield by Columbus this past Wednesday, has participated in four games with the Blue Jackets and is scoreless with a -1 mark. He is second on Springfield with 46 points (16g-30a) and leads the AHL with 26 power-play points (9g-17a) in 47 games.
A native of Prince George, British Columbia, Drazenovic skated with the Peoria Rivermen, St. Louis' primary developmental affiliate, during the first-four seasons of his career from 2007 to 2011. In 366 AHL games between Springfield and Peoria, Drazenovic has 99 goals and 148 assists for 247 points. He has not posted a point in seven-career NHL contests with Columbus and St. Louis. Drazenovic, 26, was selected by the Blues in the sixth round (171st overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
Springfield begins a four-game road stretch in Glens Falls, N.Y. tonight against the Adirondack Phantoms. The Falcons return to The Nest to host the Bruins on Saturday, Mar. 16 at 7:00 p.m. The first 1,500 fans in attendance will receive a free Falcons baseball hat.
