The Columbus Blue Jackets claimed forward Corey Tropp off waivers from the Buffalo Sabres, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.  The 24-year-old forward was drafted 89th overall  by the Sabres in 2007. He then played for three seasons at Michigan State University, where he was awarded CCHA Second Team All-Star honors in 2009-2010. Tropp also played 109 games in the AHL for the Portland Pirates and Rochester Americans, collecting 21-45-66 and 166 penalty minutes.

Tropp made his NHL debut in 2011-2012, though he missed much of the 2012-2013 sesaon due to a knee injury. He has played 43 NHL games, including 0-1-1 in nine appearances with the Sabres this season.

Molly is not an athlete. She quickly got used to winning the “Best Smile” award at her family's Summer Olympics (an award made up especially for her by her grandmother, who felt bad that she never won anything else). But as they say, "Those who cannot do, write about it from the sidelines and provide orange slices at half time."
