The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated defenseman Fedor Tyutin off injured reserve; however, it’s not certain if he’ll be able to play Saturday in Minnesota.
Tyutin suffered an ankle injury during the Olympics in Sochi, where he represented Russia. The 30-year-old has missed the last nine games for Columbus, though that includes Monday’s postponed game in Dallas.
Tyutin has four goals and 20 assists in 53 games and ranks third on the team in average ice time (21:34), behind fellow d-men Jack Johnson and James Wisniewski.
If Tyutin can’t play Saturday, the Jackets’ next game is Tuesday at home to Carolina.
