Ducks' Koivu leaves game with injury
Anaheim Ducks forward Saku Koivu left Sunday's game and did not return after taking an elbow from Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky, who was given a game misconduct.

COLUMBUSColumbus Blue Jackets center Brandon Dubinsky was given a major for interference and a game misconduct when he elbowed Anaheim Ducks center Saku Koivu in the face at 19:25 of the second period Sunday at Nationwide Arena.

The Ducks said Koivu would not return for the third period. Dubinsky appeared to hit Koivu in the jaw.

Koivu, 38, entered Sunday with two goals and one assist in 11 games.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
