Adam Cracknell Claimed by Blue Jackets

Tragic news today, as forward Adam Cracknell was claimed on waivers by the Columbus Blue Jackets. This is a pretty good opportunity for Cracknell to actually see playing time. Columbus badly needs forward depth with Nathan Horton, Boone Jenner, and Brandon Dubinsky all currently injured. Cracknell will get a spot in the bottom six, possibly at center.

First Jack Johnson, then Matt Frattin, and now this?? Columbus might want to consider using a different scout to cover the LA area. Just a suggestion.

Share your favorite memory of Cracknell's time with the Kings in the comments. Mine is an Lakingsinsider commenter praising the acquisition by calling Cracknell (he of the 1 point in 10 career playoff games) a "proven playoff performer." Because yeah, the Kings really need to raid the Blues system for those.
