COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated goaltender Curtis Sanford off injured reserve and assigned goalie Allen York to the club's AHL affiliate in Springfield, Mass.

Sanford has missed the last 10 games due to a pulled groin muscle suffered in practice on Oct. 17.

York had been on the big club's roster as a backup to starter Steve Mason.

The 32-year-old Sanford has appeared in 109 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets, St. Louis and Vancouver, going 37-37-11.

York has appeared in four games for the Blue Jackets this year, going 0-1-0 with a 3.53 goals-against average and a .878 save percentage.
