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.
It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
