Blue Jackets activate Foote from injured list

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Columbus Blue Jackets activated new
captain Adam Foote and center Manny Malhotra from the 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.
