Blue Jackets activate Foote from injured list
Foote, signed in the offseason as a free agent from Colorado, missed the last four games because of a groin injury. The defenseman became Columbus' captain Tuesday, filling a void created when Luke Richardson stepped down.
Malhotra, sidelined two games by back spasms, has two goals and a team-high 13 assists.
