Dumont had previously been claimed from the Lightning by the Ottawa Senators, but will now head back to his old organization. Since he made it all the way to Tampa Bay, he’ll be allowed to head directly to the AHL if they so choose. That gives the Syracuse Crunch a valuable asset for their stretch run, as well as adding more depth into the Lightning forward group.
The Blue Jackets have dealt with a few injuries of late with Dean Kukan and Markus Nutivaara going down, thus making Chorney’s availability too good to pass up. The veteran defenseman can step into a depth role for the club while they get healthy, and likely stick around after rosters expand next week. The Blue Jackets needed to make a corresponding move to fit him in for now, and have moved Nick Foligno to injured reserve.
