David Clarkson Out 4-6 Weeks With Torn Oblique Muscle

COLUMBUS, OHIO -- Columbus Blue Jackets right wing David Clarkson will be sidelined four to six weeks due to a torn oblique muscle suffered in Tuesday night’s game against the Washington Capitals, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.

Clarkson, 30, collected 14 penalty minutes in three games with the Blue Jackets after being acquired by the club on February 26 from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for right wing Nathan Horton. He has registered 112 goals and 84 assists for 196 points with 969 penalty minutes in 547 career NHL games, including 10-5-15 and 106 penalty minutes in 61 games this season.

Wings better keep an eye on Cole and Zids…. these UFA’s are dropping like flies.

nef.., understand what you are saying but Clarkson is under contract thru the 2018-19 season.

But Brett Connolly will be UFA in July.

CBus trades an injured player for a non-injured player, player promptly gets injured. Salary cap gods extract their tribute.
