COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed defensemen Brett Lebda and Marc Methot on injured reserve.

The club on Friday said it has added defenseman Dalton Prout to the roster on emergency recall from the Springfield Falcons, the club's AHL affiliate.

Methot suffered a broken jaw in Thursday's home loss to the Dallas Stars. Lebda has a broken thumb from a Feb 3. overtime win at Anaheim.

Goaltender Allen York also has been added on emergency recall from the Chicago Express, the club's ECHL affiliate. Blue Jackets goaltender Curtis Sanford is day-to-day with an upper body injury.

Prout has three goals and four assists in 41 games with Springfield this season.

York is 0-1-0 with a 3.53 goals-against average and .878 save percentage in four games with the Blue Jackets this season.
