COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed right wing Cam Atkinson on injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 27 and recalled center Sean Collins from their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Collins was scoreless in two games with Columbus earlier this season. He has 10 goals and nine assists in 28 games at Springfield.
