Anisimov (foot) out of tonight’s game vs. Phoenix

Feb 16, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

Columbus’ troubles up front continue.

Centerman Artem Anisimov will miss tonight’s game against Phoenix with a foot injury suffered last night against Los Angeles. When Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch asked him about his foot last night, his responses were pretty fantastic.

“Russian tough” is a great line, but he’s still going to miss the game.

So far this season, Anisimov has four goals and two assists. That might sound not-so hot but it ties him for fourth on the team in points and he’s one goal behind team leader Mark Letestu. Yeah, things are a little tough in Columbus these days. Nick Drazenovic will take his spot in the lineup and play in his first NHL game.
