Marian Gaborik activated by Blue Jackets after missing last 22 games with broken collarbone

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated forward Marian Gaborik off injured reserve after he missed the past 22 games, along with the Sochi Olympics, because of a broken collarbone.

The Blue Jackets play Thursday night at New Jersey in their first game after the NHL's Olympic hiatus.

A native of Trencin, Slovakia, Gaborik has represented his country at the 2006 and 2010 Olympics but was unable to play in Sochi because of his injury.

Gaborik was hurt in a 6-3 home win over Philadelphia on Dec. 21. He has five goals and seven assists in 18 games with Columbus this season.

He has scored 40 or more goals in a season three times.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
