COLUMBUS, OHIO -- Columbus Blue Jackets right wing Jared Boll will be sidelined three to four months following surgery to repair a torn tendon in his ankle, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today. The surgery was performed by Dr. Greg Berlet at OhioHealth’s Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Center on Monday.
“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,” said Kekalainen. “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.”
Boll, 27, has appeared in 21 games this season, scoring one goal and adding 38 penalty minutes. He was placed on Injured Reserve on November 26 retroactive to November 22 when he logged 9:07 of ice time at Vancouver.
