In the continuing saga of If We Didn’t Have Bad Luck We’d Have No Luck At All, a sad handwritten novel by Jarmo Kekalainen, Columbus Blue Jackets’ forward Marian Gaborik has returned to the Injured Reserve after playing a whopping four shifts in his first game back from, you guessed it, the Injured Reserve. Gaborik suffered a broken collar bone during Saturday’s contest against Philadelphia which resulted in a 6-3 Columbus win on home ice.
Gaborik was activated on December 20, coming off a knee injury which cost him 17 games. He had scored five goals and registered six assists before being placed on IR the first time.
Defenseman James Wisniewski was activated alongside Gaborik and managed to make it through his first game back without major incident. Wisniewski currently leads all CBJ defensemen in scoring (2-16-18), and an all-team high of eight power play assists.
