Blue Jackets' Anisimov leaves game with injury
Columbus Blue Jackets forward Artem Anisimov left in the third period of a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs with an apparent upper-body injury.

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Artem Anisimov left with 9:10 remaining in the third period of a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre on Monday night with an apparent upper-body injury.

Anisimov was carrying the puck through the neutral zone when he was hit by Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf. Anisimov quickly headed for the dressing room and appeared to be favoring his right arm.

Phaneuf was assessed a two-minute penalty for an illegal check to the head.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
