Blue Jackets forward Marian Gaborik, in first game back from knee injury, breaks collarbone

COLUMBUS, Ohio - In his first game back after missing 17 games with a sprained left knee, Columbus Blue Jackets right wing Marian Gaborik has sustained a broken collarbone.

Gaborik was injured when sandwiched between Philadelphia Flyers Braydon Coburn and Zac Rinaldo while taking a shot midway through the first period of their game on Saturday night.

Gaborik's shot went just wide, where teammate Nick Foligno collected it and fed Ryan Johansen for the game's first goal.

The 31-year-old, who has 341 goals and 345 assists in 787 career NHL games, immediately skated off the ice and went to the dressing room.

The team said he would be sidelined indefinitely.

Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
