Thumb injury sidelines Blue Jackets' Bass

Columbus Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards told the Columbus Dispatch that Blue Jackets forward Cody Bass will be out 4-6 weeks with a broken thumb.

Bass sustained the injury when he fell to the ice during a preseason game Monday.

The 26-year-old center had two goals and five assists in 18 games with the Blue Jackets' American Hockey League affiliate, the Springfield Falcons, last season.

Bass last played in the NHL in 2011-12, with one assist in 14 games with the Blue Jackets.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
