Tim Erixon is hoping to play in the Winter Classic on Jan. 1, 2015 against the Washington Capitals.
The game will take place at Nationals Park in Washington. Erixon just missed playing in the Winter Classic in 2011-12 when he was a member of the New York Rangers because he was demoted to the minors a few days before. "It was kind of disappointing [not to play in the 2012 Winter Classic], but that first year I was kind of going up and down quite a bit," Erixon said. "That would've been fun, but I guess I'll get to experience it this time. I'm pretty pumped to get a second swing at it." He's been a healthy scratch in Chicago's past two games and there's no guarantee that he'll play in the Winter Classic. Dec 25 - 6:52 PM

Tim Erixon, Adam Cracknell, and rookie Kerby Rychel will all be healthy scratches on Tuesday night against Philadelphia.

Columbus is getting Brandon Dubinsky back, which will allow Coach Richards a deeper than usual (for this season) lineup.

The goal was Erixon's first in the NHL. Erixon also delivered a hit that knocked Kings' star Anze Kopitar out of the game. The 23-year-old played under eight minutes in the game and won't be a viable fantasy option until Columbus ups his ice time.

Tim Erixon (knee) once again skated on his own Saturday.

It was the third consecutive day for Erixon who took a shot off his knee a week ago. It's looking more and more like he should be ready for the start of the season but as of now he is a 7-8 defenseman on the Blue Jackets and as a result, he will not have fantasy value.

Tim Erixon (knee) skated on his own for the second day in a row Friday.
