Blue Jackets add T.J. Tynan on emergency recall

COLUMBUS, OH – The Columbus Blue Jackets have added center T.J. Tynan to the roster on emergency recall from the Cleveland Monsters, the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, Blue Jackets General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.


Tynan, 25, has recorded seven goals and 23 assists for 30 points and 28 penalty minutes in 55 games with Cleveland this season.  He leads the club in assists and points and ranks second overall – first among forwards – with a +10 plus/minus rating.


The 5-8, 165-pound center was selected by Columbus in the third round, 66th overall, at the 2011 NHL Draft.  He has posted 26-98-124, 116 penalty minutes and a cumulative +11 plus/minus rating in 209 career AHL games with the Monsters and Springfield Falcons.  He notched a career-high 13-35-48 in 75 games with Springfield in 2014-15 and had 6-40-46 in 76 games with the Monsters in 2015-16.  He added 1-5-6 in 17 playoff games to help the club win the 2016 Calder Cup championship.
The Orland Park, Illinois native played four seasons at Notre Dame from 2010-14.  After being named the CCHA Rookie of the Year and helping the Fighting Irish reach the NCAA Frozen Four in 2010-11 when he racked up 23-31-54 in 44 games, he was named First Team All-CCHA in 2011-12 and was the CCHA Tournament Most Valuable Player 2012-13.  Tynan led the Irish in scoring again as a senior in 2013-14 with 8-30-38 in 40 games to finish his career among the school’s all-time leaders in points, assists and games played with 54-107-161 and 132 penalty minutes in 164 career outings.  He also represented the United States at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championships, collecting 1-3-4 in six games.

NHL Morning Skate Publication for Friday, March 3, 2017

Home Team in Caps
WASHINGTON 1, New Jersey 0
NY Rangers 2, BOSTON 1
PHILADELPHIA 2, Florida 1 (SO)
COLUMBUS 1, Minnesota 0
BUFFALO 6, Arizona 3
MONTREAL 2, Nashville 1
OTTAWA 2, Colorado 1
NY Islanders 5, DALLAS 4
LOS ANGELES 3, Toronto 2 (SO)
SAN JOSE 3, Vancouver 1

Paul Byron scored the go-ahead goal on a breakaway with 8.3 seconds remaining in regulation to power the Atlantic Division-leading Canadiens (36-21-8, 80 points) to their fourth straight win.

* Former Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban collected an assist in his first game in Montreal since being traded to the Predators in exchange for Shea Weber last June.

* Subban was brought to tears during a standing ovation from fans at Bell Centre after a video tribute was aired prior to the start of the game.

Jakub Vrana scored the only goal of the contest and Braden Holtby (15 saves) registered his League-leading eighth shutout of the season as the Capitals (43-13-7, 93 points) extended their home win and point streaks to 14 and 16 games (15-0-1), respectively, to eclipse previous benchmarks set in 2009-10.

* Elias notes that Washington became the first team to register a home win streak of 14 or more games since 2011-12, when Detroit established an NHL record with 23 consecutive home victories.

* The Capitals, who lead the NHL with 26 home wins this season (26-5-1, 53 points), have registered 10 shutouts at Verizon Center including six during their 14-game win streak. Prior to this season, Elias notes that their franchise record for home shutouts in one campaign was seven, set in 1995-96.

* Holtby improved to 18-0-2 in his past 20 decisions (1.71 GAA, .935 SV%, 5 SO), two shy of his career high for consecutive decisions with a point (20-0-2 in 2015-16). Elias notes that only one other goaltender in NHL history has achieved multiple stretches of 20 straight decisions with at least a point (within a single season): Pete Peeters in 1979-80 (27 GP) and 1982-83 (31 GP).

The Blue Jackets (40-16-6, 86 points) and Rangers (41-21-2, 84 points) both earned victories to keep pace with the League-leading Capitals in the crowded Metropolitan Division, where seed Nos. 2-4 are separated by only two points:

Brandon Saad scored the only goal of the game early in the third period and Sergei Bobrovsky denied all 38 shots he faced as the Blue Jackets blanked the Western Conference-leading Wild to reach the 40-win mark for the fourth time in franchise history. Bobrovsky posted his 33rd win of 2016-17 to set a new career high and match the franchise record for most wins in a season by a goaltender (Steve Mason in 2008-09).

Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves while celebrating his 35th birthday to backstop the Rangers to their League-leading 22nd road win of the season (22-8-0, 44 points). Lundqvist earned the 403rd win of his NHL career (734 GP) to tie Grant Fuhr for 10th on the all-time list and match the NHL record for most wins by a goaltender in his first 12 seasons (Martin Brodeur: 403 in 740 GP).

The Senators (34-22-6, 74 points) and Flyers (30-26-7, 67 points) each secured wins via key performances from recent acquisitions:

Alexandre Burrows scored both Ottawa goals in his team debut to guide the Senators to victory, keeping pace with the Canadiens for first place in the Atlantic Division. Elias notes that Burrows became the fourth player in franchise history to score twice in his team debut, joining Doug Smail (Oct. 8, 1992 vs. MTL), Brian Glynn (Oct. 6, 1993 vs. QUE) and Dan Quinn (March 17, 1994 at SJS).

Valtteri Filppula scored the game-tying goal in his team debut and Jakub Voracek (0-1—1) tallied the decisive marker in the shootout as the Flyers earned a 2-1 victory. Filppula, who was acquired from Tampa Bay on Wednesday, snapped a 15-game drought with his first goal since Jan. 17 at ANA.

The Islanders (30-22-10, 70 points) and Kings (31-27-6, 68 points) both overcame multi-goal deficits to move into the final Wild Card spots in their respective conferences:

Ryan Strome registered 2-1—3 to help the Islanders overcome a 3-1 deficit and move ahead of the Maple Leafs (28-21-14, 70 points) for the last Wild Card position in the Eastern Conference.

* Los Angeles overcame a 2-0 deficit in the third period and Anze Kopitar (1-0—1) scored the decisive goal in the shootout as the Kings improved to 3-1-2 in their last six contests to leapfrog the idle Blues (31-26-5, 67 points) for the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference.

Marcus Sorensen (GWG) scored the first goal of his NHL career (4 GP) to help the Pacific Division-leading Sharks (38-18-7, 83 points) extend their point streak to eight games (5-0-3) . . . Sabres forward Jack Eichel collected 1-2—3 to extend his point streak to eight contests (2-9—11) . . . Brent Burns (5-5—10 in 7 GP), Brayden Schenn (3-4—7 in 6 GP) and Jamie Benn (4-3—7 in 5 GP) also extended point streaks . . . Brad Marchand scored for the fourth consecutive game (4-4—8) . . . Forwards Joshua Ho-Sang (NYI), J.T. Compher (COL) and Kevin Rooney (NJD) made their NHL debuts . . . Hockey Hall of Fame play-by-play broadcaster Bob Miller will return to the Kings TV broadcast booth in April and then retire upon the conclusion of the regular season.

On March 3, 1875, the first hockey game played under organized rules was held at Victoria Skating Rink in Montreal. The contest – which was played on a rink with no boards – featured two nine-man teams made up mainly of university students in a game that was divided into two halves.
