The Columbus Blue Jackets activated winger Oliver Bjorkstrand off injured reserve Sunday, General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced Sunday.

Bjorkstrand has missed the Blue Jackets' last 13 games due to a rib injury suffered in late December against New Jersey. Before going down, Bjorkstrand's 12 goals, three game-winning goals, eight multi-point games, and 122 shots on goal led the club.

Stenlund picked up 4-2-6 in 17 games with Columbus after being recalled on December 15. He'll return to the Cleveland Monsters where he has 6-10-16 in 27 games this season

The Blue Jackets, winners of eight of their last 10, are back on the ice tonight when they face the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The puck drops shortly after 7 p.m.
