Where is Fritcshe I want him back

The Columbus Blue Jackets brought forward Ben Simon up from their American Hockey League affiliate in Syracuse, N.Y., on Monday and sent down forward Dan Fritsche.
Simon has 11 goals and 11 assists in 40 games with the Crunch this season, including three power-play goals and three short-handed goals. He has played 73 NHL games in his career, including five games with Columbus this season, totaling three goals, an assist and 43 penalty minutes with the Blue Jackets and the Atlanta Thrashers.
Fritsche, a second-round pick in the 2003 draft, had two goals in the Blue Jackets' opener but has just once since and missed four games in October with an ankle injury. He also has five assists this season.
He played 19 games with Columbus in 2003-2004, picking up one goal, and spent last season with Sarnia and London of the Ontario Hockey League, totaling 18 goals and 19 assists in 30 games.
