CBJ’s Kristian Huselius Now Out 4-6 Months

From Aaron Portzline at Puck-Rakers:

Blue Jackets left winger Kristian Huselius has suffered a torn pectoral muscle while lifting weights last weekend in Sweden, and will have surgery on Thursday in Columbus. He’s expected to miss 4 to 6 months.

“It’s a tough, tough injury for Kristian,” Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson said. “He was still rehabilitating the hip (surgery in April) but was going to ready to go for training camp. This is a pretty significant setback.

“We’re looking at November at the earliest, and maybe January. It’s a pretty serious injury with a long recovery.”

Huselius flew with his family to Columbus on Tuesday to meet with Blue Jackets’ team doctors today.

Wow it’s July and Columbus’ season is already falling apart.  I don’t see a lot of hope for them this year.
