Columbus Blue Jackets forward Blake Comeau to miss 4-6 weeks with sprained knee

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.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
