Goal-starved Blue Jackets recall Milano

1 Comment

The struggling Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled the leading scorer on their AHL team.

Sonny Milano is on his way to the big club. The 20-year-old winger, the 16th overall pick in the 2014 draft, has 16 goals and 27 assists in 59 games for Cleveland this season.

The Jackets are 2-3-2 in their last seven games, with just 11 goals combined. On Sunday, they dropped a 3-2 decision to Washington, despite racking up 37 shots.

“In the second period, we developed 10 scoring chances,” coach John Tortorella said, per the Columbus Dispatch. “We had a ton of odd-man rushes. We just couldn’t score.”

Columbus takes on the Penguins tomorrow in Pittsburgh.
