Defenseman Fedor Tyutin, who had missed nine games because of an ankle injury suffered during the Olympics, returned to the Columbus Blue Jackets Saturday night and contributed a steady effort to his team's 2-1 shootout victory over the Minnesota Wild.

Tyutin blocked a shot and delivered a hit and there were no Wild goals while he was on the ice. With Tyutin back, Columbus coach Todd Richards made sweeping changes to his defensive pairings. Jack Johnson, who had been Tyutin's partner, skated with David Savard while Tyutin was out. But Richards had Johnson paired with Dalton Prout, Tyutin with James Wisniewski, and Nikita Nikitin with Savard. Tyutin and Wisniewski hadn't played together since early in the 2011-12 season. "He's such an easy guy to play with," Wisniewski said. "Every defensemen in this room would love to have Fedor next to them."
