The Columbus Blue Jackets sent Sean Collins back to the AHL on Saturday.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have called up Sean Collins on an emergency basis.

Columbus sent Collins to the minors on Dec. 22, so by recalling him now he hasn't missed a single game in the Blue Jackets schedule. He will serve as the backup plan in case Scott Hartnell (hand) isn't able to play on Saturday as anticipated. If Hartnell isn't available then Collins will dress.

The Blue Jackets have been hit very hard by injuries and illness, so Collins was called up as an extra body. He did not play in his latest stint with Columbus, but did see a nice bump in his per diem.
