Atkinson due back soon (update)
By Victoria Matiash
UPDATE: According to the Columbus Dispatch, Cam Atkinson is -- finally -- expected back in the lineup for the Columbus Blue Jackets. After recovering from a "tricky" ankle sprain, the 23-year-old forward will likely suit up against the Detroit Red Wings Thursday.
Look for Atkinson to skate on a line with center Derick Brassard and winger R.J. Umberger.
The Columbus Blue Jackets may have winger Cam Atkinson (high ankle sprain) back in the mix within the next few days.
The Columbus Dispatch reports Atkinson could return before a six-game homestand ends Monday against the San Jose Sharks.
Atkinson collected one goal (10 shots) in three games before suffering the ankle sprain.
