Jeff Carter’s separated shoulder lands him on IR

With one playoff appearance and zero postseason wins in franchise history, the Columbus Blue Jackets have plenty of bad seasons to choose from. This current campaign has to rank up there, though, as spending/expectations were soaring high but the Jackets are falling flat on their faces.

Things somehow continue to get worse, though, as the Blue Jackets placed Jeff Carter on the injured reserve today. His separated shoulder leaves him at a dreaded week-to-week status.

Carter already missed 10 games with a broken foot, so this was a tough first season in Columbus even before the former Philadelphia Flyers sniper injured his shoulder. There’s really no reason to rush him back, either, being that the Blue Jackets are the NHL’s only team under the 30-point mark with 27 coming into Friday’s action.

    Carter – out. Gagne – out. Carcillo – out. Richards – 1 concussion, so far. Tough year for ex-Flyers.

      Pronger – out. Schenn – out twice. Jagr – out twice. Giroux – 1 concussion. Couturier – hospitalized. Tough year for current Flyers.
