Blue Jackets place Moore on IR

The Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday placed defenseman John Moore on injured reserve.

Moore has been sidelined the past two games with a shoulder injury he suffered during the team's morning skate in Chicago on March 1. He's expected to be out 2-3 weeks.

A first-round pick (No. 21) of the Blue Jackets in 2009, Moore has two goals and eight points in 82 career games with the Blue Jackets. He has one assist in 13 matches this season.

Columbus will play host to the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
