COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed forward Blake Comeau on injured reserve with a sprained knee sustained in Thursday's practice.

Comeau is expected to be out for four to six weeks.

The 27-year-old leads the Blue Jackets in hits with 131. He has three goals and eight assists with 21 penalty minutes in 43 games this season.

Acquired by Columbus in a trade with Calgary on April 5, 2013, he has 70 goals and 89 assists in 404 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets, Flames and New York Islanders.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
