COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed defenseman Mike Commodore on injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 9 with a chip fracture in his left thumb.

The club also added defenseman Nick Holden to the roster on emergency recall from the minor league affiliate Springfield Falcons.

General manager Scott Howson announced the moves on Tuesday.

Commodore suffered the injury in the second game of the season against the San Jose Sharks in Stockholm. He is listed as day to day.

The 23-year-old Holden has one goal and six penalty minutes in six games with the Falcons this season.
