Malhotra was put on injured reserve Thursday retroactive to Oct. 5 with what the team termed a "lower body" injury.

Dorsett was one of the last cuts from training camp. He was sent to Syracuse on Wednesday.

The Blue Jackets open the 2008-09 season with a three-game road trip, beginning Friday in Dallas and continuing in Phoenix and San Jose.
