NHL Moves: New Jersey, Blue Jackets, Reinhart

The New Jersey Devils have called up defenseman Seth Helgeson from their AHL affiliate in Albany.  The big, 25 year-old blueliner last saw NHL action with New Jersey during the 2014-15 season, notching two assists in 22 games.  He has seven points in 33 games with the Albany Devils this season.  The call up was in response to an injury to defenseman John Moore, which landed him on injured reserve, according to All About the Jersey.

New Jersey will also get forward Bobby Farnham back, after a four-game suspension was served for interference against the St. Louis Blues' Dmitrij Jaskin.

Anton Forsberg was recalled by the Columbus Blue Jackets, as an emergency recall, according to the team's official website.  The move is in response to an injury suffered by netminder Sergei Bobrovsky in Thursday night's game, currently categorized only as a "lower body injury".

The Edmonton Oilers have recalled young defenseman Griffin Reinhart from their AHL affiliate Bakersfield Condors, according to the Edmonton Journal.  Reinhart has seen 12 games of NHL action this season, while getting into 14 contests for Bakersfield.  It was indicated by General Manager Peter Chiarelli that he was pleased with Reinhart's play, and the primary reason for him being in Bakersfield was to ensure that he was not in and out of the lineup.  At the same time, fellow defenseman Brandon Davidson has been placed on injured reserve by the Oilers, with an undisclosed injury.
