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.

Wozniacki will move to Number 1 in tennis rankings

Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark will replace Serena Williams as tennis’ Number 1 female player when the new rankings are released on Monday.

The 20-year-old Wozniacki became the first Danish player, male or female, to achieve the top ranking with her win on Thursday over Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic, 6-3, 6-2 in the China Open in Beijing.

Caroline Wozniacki (WTA Tour)

Wozniacki is the 20th player to top the rankings since they originated in 1975 and the third in the past two years to do so without having a Grand Slam title, following Jelena Jankovic and Dinara Safina.

Wozniacki has won 11 titles in her career, five of them in 2010, and has lost just once in her last 21 matches.

She reached the US Open final in 2009, losing to Kim Clijsters. Her best Grand Slam result this season was in New York, where she lost in the semi-finals.

Turning to Serena Williams, the 2010 Australian Open and Wimbledon champion, she pulled out of the China Open due to a nagging foot injury.

Media reports have it that Williams could return to the tour in Linz, Austria next week.
