The Blue Jackets have activated Cam Atkinson (ankle) from IR.

Atkinson has missed the last 12 games with a sprained ankle but is set to return to the lineup on Thursday. To make room for Atkinson, the Blue Jackets reassigned Ryan MacInnis to Cleveland (AHL). Atkinson has not had the season he was expecting to have after posting a career-high 41 goals and 69 points in 2018-19. He has nine goals (8.0 SH%) and 12 assists (21 points) in 35 games this season.

Atkinson has been placed on IR; is expected to miss 2-to-3 weeks with a sprained ankle.

Atkinson was hurt vs. the Kings on December 19th and missed the final two games before the Christmas break. This is a tough time for Atkinson to get hurt because he was finally heating up--scoring five goals with two assists in his previous nine games. With Atkinson, among others, sidelined newcomers like Kevin Stenlund and Eric Robinson have been tasked with playing top-6 roles for Columbus.

The Blue Jackets signed Cam Atkinson to a seven-year extension worth $41.125M ($5.875M AAV).

Atkinson’s extension include a no-trade or no-move clause in the first two years of the deal and a limited no-trade after that. Atkinson had a breakout campaign in 2016-17 but has struggled early-on in 2017-18, collecting just four goals and two assists (six points) in 15 games. Regardless of the slow start, Atkinson is locked into a large role in the Blue Jackets offence and is now signed there through the 2024-25 season.
