Tuesday, 12.17.2013 / 3:17 PM / News


Columbus Blue Jackets right wing Jared Boll will be sidelined 3-4 months following surgery to repair a torn tendon in his ankle.

The surgery was performed Monday by Dr. Greg Berlet at OhioHealth's Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Center.

"Our initial hope was that Jared would be able to return to the lineup with rest and rehabilitation, but it became apparent over the past few days that surgery was the best course of action," general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. "We're disappointed for Jared as he has worked very hard and is an important part of our team, but we expect him to make a full recovery and hopefully return to the lineup later this season."

Monday, 12.16.2013 / 12:43 PM / News


Buffalo Sabres forward Cody McCormick will miss 4-6 weeks with an upper-body injury, interim coach Ted Nolan said Monday.

McCormick, who has one goal and four assists in 25 games this season, played just three shifts in a 2-1 overtime loss against the Calgary Flames on Saturday. He was hurt blocking a slap shot by Flames defenseman Mark Giordano.

"He's fearless," Nolan said. "He puts himself in front of shots that are coming in 90 miles an hour and sometimes they hit you in the wrong spot. Unfortunately, that's what happened to Cody last game. But he's a tough guy. He'll bounce back and be ready to go in time when he's healed."
