Blue Jackets defenseman Scott Harrington is entering the lineup tonight due to an injury that forces Ryan Murray out of the lineup. Murray's injury is being described as upper-body.

The move makes sense considering the Blue Jackets recalled defenseman Gabriel Carlsson earlier in the day on an emergency and sent forward Markus Hannikainen down to make room for Carlsson. 

Harrington has played in two games this season, he has averaged less than eight minutes of ice time in those two appearances. He did not register a shot in either game and accrued two penalty minutes. 

Against a stifling Carolina Hurricanes team, Harrington is going to be thrown into the fire. Along with center Alex Wennberg and goalie Joonas Korpisalo entering the lineup, the Blue Jackets lineup is going to have a large facelift.

Center Jordan Schroeder will be a healthy scratch due to Wennberg's return.
