Health Problems in Columbus

From Tom Reed at Puck-rakers,

You just knew the Jackets’ good health wouldn’t last. Goaltender Pascal Leclaire will miss at least the next two games with a possible concussion, coach Ken Hitchcock said. He was struck in the mask with a puck during pre-game warm-ups on Sunday.

Freddy Norrena will make his second straight start against Calgary on Tuesday night in Nationwide in what promises to be a testy game. [...]

Jackets’ winger David Vyborny is out for 7-to-10 days with a knee sprain. There was fear Sunday night that Vyborny’s season and possibly his Blue Jackets career might have been over.

And from TSN: “The Blue Jackets called up goaltender Dan LaCosta from the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL on an emergency basis.”

What’s Wrong With Vyborny

from the Columbus Dispatch,

“I don’t want to call him the poster child,” Blue Jackets coach Ken Hitchcock said, “but he’s in a position where we need more from him. After a while, after 35 or 40 games, it’s up to the player. It’s up to them to do more.”

Vyborny, 33, has had around 20 goals and 40 assists in each of the past three seasons, including a career-tying high 22 goals in 2005-06 and a career-high 48 assists last season.

That’s why his three goals and 13 assists in 48 games heading into a game tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks are so befuddling.

Vyborny Still Using “Old School” Stick

from the Columbus Dispatch,

And then there are David Vyborny’s sticks: short, stubby, all wood and spray-painted black.

It’s like wandering into Circuit City and finding a shelf stocked with 14-inch, black-and-white televisions. Forget high definition. In the world of hockey innovation, Vyborny isn’t even cable ready.

“I’m an old-style guy,” said Vyborny, a right winger and the franchise leader in assists and points. “When I find something I like, I want to keep using it.”
