Giroux brought up by Jackets for goal-scoring

Alexandre Giroux had a busy Friday.

He caught a morning flight from Washington and arrived for practice at Nationwide Arena with the #2 forward line to get ready for the Dallas Stars.

The Blue Jackets need a secondary scorer and power-play help and they feel Giroux is the guy. He has been a scoring machine in the American Hockey League, but has struggled with the speed of the NHL which will not allow time and space to shoot the puck.

On Thursday, the Jackets brought Giroux up from minor-league Springfield and sent down promising youngster Cam Atkinson.

Giroux immediately scored a goal on Saturday night against the Dallas Stars in a 4-2 loss to drop the Jackets to a disappointing 0-4-1 start.

The Columbus Blue Jackets off-season moves are to strengthen the NHL team but also their minor-league affiliate as well.

Their AHL team, the Springfield Falcons, finished at 35-40-2-3 last season, 12th out of 15 teams in the Eastern Conference of the American Hockey League.

The Springfield management want the team to be more competitive. They will hire a coach to tutor the defenseman, which is very much needed.

The signings of forwards Dane Byers, Martin St. Pierre and Cody Bass will help the Falcons.

The 25-year-old Byers scored 15 goals and 31 assists in 75 games with three teams.

St. Pierre, who turns 28 in August, played last season in Austria, Russia and Finland. He has played well in the AHL, scoring 405 points in 367 career games.

Bass, who is 24, scored six goals with nine assists in 58 games for Binghamton in the AHL last season.

The team has also signed AHL MVP Alexandre Giroux, a winger, along with defenseman Aaron Johnson, forward Ryan Russell and goaltender Curtis Sanford.
