After placing John Ramage on waivers yesterday, the Columbus Blue Jackets have assigned both him and Sonny Milano to Cleveland of the AHL. Ramage cleared today, after not getting into a single game with the team this season.
Milano was Columbus’ first round selection (fourteenth overall) in 2014, and since has been an effective scoring threat in both the OHL and AHL. He broke into the NHL last season for three games, notching a single assist. After starting the year with the Monsters, he was called up a week ago but didn’t get into a game with the big club.
Ramage, a former fourth-round pick of the Flames wasn’t tendered a qualifying offer after the 2014-15 season and thus became a free agent. He signed a one-year deal with the Blue Jackets tht summer, only to be extended this past March for two more years. The 25-year old is the son of former NHLer and #1 overall pick Rob Ramage, who played over 1000 games in the NHL and collected 564 points.
