Sergei Bobrovsky to miss Predators game after incident

11 January 2019

Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky has found himself in the club's dog house.

John Tortorella got his 600th National Hockey League win when Artemi Panarin scored at 1:22 of overtime to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 4-3 win against the Nashville Predators at Nationwide Arena on Thursday.

"There are certain values and expectations we have for the players, no matter who it is".

With Bobrovsky unavailable for tonight's game, the Blue Jackets called up goalie Jean-Francois Berube from the Cleveland Monsters of the AHL.

The two-time Vezina victor is having a down year (.906 save percentage in 32 games) but the Blue Jackets are in the Eastern Conference playoff picture halfway through the season, so they may elect to hold onto him for the remainder of this year for the sake of a postseason run - even if it means losing him for nothing this offseason.

Authorities are now asking for Ronaldo's DNA to see if it matches that found on Mayorga's dress from the 2009 night in question. The police case was closed in 2009 when the alleged victim, Kathryn Mayorga , declined to name her assailant. 5/7 minutes.

Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Athletic that a meeting with Bobrovsky is planned before practice on Friday.

The 30-year-old Bobrovsky is 18-13-1 in the final year of his contract and so far has declined to sign a long-term extension. No details were given by either Jarmo or Torts so we may not know for a while what actually happened but either way, it isn't good for the long term future of either Bob or the Jackets. They know my plans for this season, they know my plans for the future so they know everything.

"They know exactly what we're going to do". Winger Markus Hannikainen will also miss a week with an elbow injury.

The Blue Jackets, who have exited the postseason in the first-round in each of the past two years, now sit third in the Metropolitan Division on 51 points.
