Blue Jackets goalie Bobrovsky to miss 4-6 weeks

Monday, 01.26.2015 / 4:27 PM / News

NHL.com

The Columbus Blue Jackets' hopes of returning to the Stanley Cup Playoffs just hit another roadblock with the announcement Monday that goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to miss 4-6 weeks because of a groin injury.

Bobrovsky was injured Jan. 21  against the Winnipeg Jets, an injury that initially kept him out of the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game.

In 33 games this season, Bobrovsky is 16-15-2 with a 2.85 goals-against average and .913 save percentage.

The Blue Jackets, who have been beset by injuries all season, are 14 points behind the Boston Bruins for the final Eastern Conference wild-card spot.

"I don't know how many (wins) we need, but we've got to get every one we can," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. "... It starts [Tuesday against the Washington Capitals]. That has to be our approach."

NHL Public Relations

NEW YORKColumbus Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen, Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson and Minnesota Wild left wing Zach Parise have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Jan. 25.

FIRST STAR – RYAN JOHANSEN, C, COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS

Capping a weekend that celebrated the sport and the fans, Johansen was named the MVP – via Twitter vote – of the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game. The 22-year-old Vancouver, B.C., native led Team Foligno (captained by Blue Jackets linemate Nick Foligno) with 2-2-4, including a pair of goals in the opening period, in a 17-12 loss to Team Toews Jan. 25. He also was the top pick in the 2015 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft presented by DraftKings Jan. 23 and the winner of the Honda NHL Breakaway Challenge Jan. 24. The Blue Jackets' leading scorer in 2014-15, Johansen was held without a point in each of team's two outings earlier in the week – a 3-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild Jan. 19 and a 4-0 loss to the Winnipeg Jets Jan. 21. That snapped his point streak at 13 games (8-8-16), a franchise record, career high and the longest in the NHL this season. Johansen paces the Blue Jackets (20-22-3, 43 points) with 26 assists and 43 points in 45 outings in 2014-15. He also is the only player in the NHL with two point streaks of at least 10 games this season (also Oct. 9 31: 5-8-13 in 10 GP).
