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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
