The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated goaltender Joonas Korpisalo off injured reserve, the team announced Sunday.

Korpisalo, 25, suffered a knee injury during a shootout against the Chicago Blackhawks on Dec. 29 and has missed the Blue Jackets' last 24 games.

The Finnish puck-stopper has recorded a 17-10-4 record with a 2.49 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage this season. He was named to his first NHL All-Star Game but didn't play due to the injury.

The Blue Jackets received sensational goaltending from netminder Elvis Merzlikins in Korpisalo's absence. The rookie has authored a .922 save percentage and five shutouts through 31 contests.

Columbus remains in the midst of a tight Eastern Conference playoff race with 19 games remaining.
