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.
Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
