COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed defenceman John Moore on injured reserve after he injured his shoulder during the morning skate on Friday in Chicago.
Moore is expected to be out 2-3 weeks.
Columbus' first pick and the 21st overall in the 2009 draft, the 22-year-old Moore has two goals and six assists in 82 career games with the Blue Jackets. This season the 6-foot-3, 202-pound native of Winnetka, Ill., has an assist in 13 games.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
