Columbus Blue Jackets say RW Derek Dorsett likely to miss rest of year with broken collarbone

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed right wing Derek Dorsett on injured reserve after he broke his collarbone in the first period of Thursday night's 2-1 overtime win over Vancouver.

The club expects Dorsett to miss the rest of the season.

Dorsett has 27 goals and 38 assists in 280 career NHL games, all with Columbus.

The Blue Jackets' ninth pick, 189th overall, at the 2006 draft, he had three goals, six assists and 53 penalty minutes in 24 games this season. He leads the team with 55 hits and ranks fifth in points.

Last season, Dorsett led the NHL in penalty minutes with 235 and set career highs in goals (12), points (20), shots (137) and games played (77).

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
