The Big Ten Conference has selected Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to be the site of its football championship game through 2015.

Indianapolis was selected over Chicago’s Soldier Field due to the fact the conference wanted the game indoors.

The conference had already selected Indy as the host city to its inaugural championship game to be played on December 3, 2011.

The Big Ten also announced that it would be rotating the men’s and women’s basketball tournament between Chicago and Indianapolis in 2013.

The men’s tournament will be played at the United Center in 2013 and 2015. The women’s tournament will be played at the Sears Centre in suburban Hoffman Estates, Illinois, the same year. Conseco Fieldhouse will play host to both tournaments in 2014 and 2016.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated left wing Kristian Huselius off injured reserve and assigned right wing Maksim Mayorov to the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League.

The 32-year-old Huselius played Sunday against the Chicago Blackhawks after missing the past 20 games due to an injury suffered at the United Center in Chicago on February 18. He has registered 12 goals and nine assists for 21 points in 35 games this season. Huselius has played in 657 games with Florida, Calgary and Columbus.

Mayorov, who is 22, who has made an impression on head coach Scott Arniel who told the media after Sunday’s game that the young player will be given a chance to win a job next season with the Jackets.

The right winger scored the first goal of his NHL career against Chicago on Friday and scored the game-deciding shootout goal against Florida on March 29. He has appeared in 12 career games in the NHL with the Blue Jackets.

The Andizhan, Russia native was Columbus’ fifth pick, 94th overall, in the 2007 Entry Draft.

Blue Jackets shake off bad loss to Calgary; rally stuns Blackhawks (Saturday)

If the Blue Jackets keep following up bad losses with a big win over teams people say they can’t beat, its going to be a long, long season.

On Friday, they had a very bad loss to Calgary, but rallies from two goals down to beat the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center in Chicago.

The 3-2 win stunned the 20,265 in attendance.

R.J. Umberger, Derick Brassard and Antione Vermette scored the Columbus goals while Marc Methot collected two saves and goaltender Steve Mason stopped 30 shots.

Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash had a 20-minute team meeting and said it was a look-at-yourself-in-the-mirror session.

The key point in the game came late in the second period with the Blackhawks up 2-0 and looking like they were cruising to another win over Columbus.

With 35.7 seconds left, Brassard picked up the puck after Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford had blocked aside a shot by Jakub Voracek. Brassard knocked in the rebound for his first goal of the season.

On the faceoff after the goal, Columbus’ Fedor Tyutin was pasted face-first into the boards by the Blue Jackets bench by Chicago’s Troy Brouwer. That vicious check sent Tyutin to the ice, grabbing his neck in pain. Brouwer was given a five-minute major and in that time frame, the Blue Jackets grabbed the momentum with the long power play which carried over into the third period.

The third period had barely begun, 1:33 to be exact, Tyutin put a shot on goal that glanced off of Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson before R.J. Umberger knocked the rebound past Crawford and just like that, it was 2-2.

At the 6:29 mark, Methot shot a puck inside the blue line and shot a slap shot that Vermette redirected past a stunned Crawford and that was your game-winner.

The Blue Jackets had a nice third period putting 20 shots on goal and finished the night with a season-high 40.

Surprisingly, Columbus is 3-0 on the road and 4-3 overall.
