2nd year 2009 Columbus Blue Jackets 1st round draft pick (#21 overall) defenseman John Moore(7) receives his first NHL call-up of the young season. He played in just 2 games with the team last year registering no points.
In 5 games with Springfield Falcons this season he’s already notched a goal and an assist. In his rookie year, he played 73 games (5 goals, 19 assists) but was a horrible -27 plus/minus.
To say he’s still growing into his game pretty much tells the whole story. At 6’3″ 202 lbs. it’s just a matter of time before he becomes a full-time blue liner in the NHL.
