Blue Jackets’ Sergei Bobrovsky to miss game after unknown ‘incident’

Sergei Bobrovsky not with the Columbus Blue Jackets after an “Incident”

Bobrovsky is a two-time Vezina Trophy victor and is now in the final year of his contract with the Blue Jackets.

Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will miss Thursday night's game because of an unspecified team "incident".

Coach John Tortorella declined to comment on the matter.

Sidhu has pleaded guilty to 16 counts of risky driving causing death and 13 counts of unsafe driving causing bodily harm. The maximum penalty for unsafe driving causing death is 14 years; it's 10 years for risky driving causing bodily harm.

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

With the two-time Vezina victor away from the team, the Jackets recalled goaltender Jean-Francois Berube from Cleveland of the American Hockey League.

Bobrovsky, a two-time Vezina Trophy victor, is 18-13-1 with a 2.87 goals-against average, two shutouts and a.906 save percentage this season for the Blue Jackets, who are third in the Metropolitan Division through Wednesday's games.

Bobrovsky's future with the team beyond this season has been an open question, as is the future of star forward Artemi Panarin, who is also expected to test the free-agent market this summer. 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 the season".

"They know exactly what we're going to do".

When Columbus Blue Jackets fans woke up today they thought that the big roster shakeup would be the return of Nick Foligno and the loss of Brandon Dubinsky and Markus Hannikainen. Both players were placed on injured reserve.
