Gaborik to miss Blue Jackets' game vs. Canadiens

MONTREAL - Marian Gaborik, the Columbus Blue Jackets' leading scorer, will miss his team's game against the Montreal Canadiens Thursday night due to an illness, the team announced just over two hours before puck drop.

Gaborik's spot in the lineup will be taken by Sean Collins, who will make his season debut.

Gaborik has two goals and four assists in five games this season playing on the Blue Jackets' top line with Brandon Dubinsky and Cam Atkinson. Rookie Boone Jenner is expected to take Gaborik's spot on that line.

Collins played five games with the Blue Jackets last season. He is still looking for his first NHL point.
