The Springfield Falcons announced on Wednesday that center Nick Drazenovic has been recalled by their NHL affiliate, the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Drazenovic has a share of the Falcons’ team lead with 45 points (16g, 29a), placing the sixth-year pro in a tie for third place in the league in scoring along with teammate Jonathan Audy-Marchessault.
The 26-year-old from Prince George, B.C., leads the league in power-play points (26) and is tied for first with six game-winning goals.
This is Drazenovic’s first recall to Columbus. He has played three career NHL games, all with St. Louis in 2010-11.
