Jackets take Jenner off IR, put Anisimov on

2 Comments

Columbus remained active on the transaction front Monday, making a flurry of roster and injured reserve moves.

The most notable ones are that sophomore Boone Jenner has come off IR after breaking his hand on Sept. 27, while forward Artem Anisimov is now on (retroactively) following a concussion suffered on Oct. 28.

In other moves, d-man Cody Goloubef is also on IR — projected to be out six weeks with a knee injury — leading to Frederic St. Denis’ call-up from AHL Springfield.

Given how crazy Columbus has been with injuries lately, here’s a look at the overall picture:

— At forward, Jenner and Matt Calvert are both expected to return from injury on Tuesday against Carolina. Anisimov, Nathan Horton, Brandon Dubinsky and Mark Letestu are still out.

— On defense, Goloubef joins James Wisniewski on the shelf. St. Denis could go right into the top-six alongside Jack Johnson, Fedor Tyutin, Ryan Murray, Tim Erixon and David Savard.

— In goal, Sergei Bobrovsky is still out and Curtis McElhinney will get the start versus the ‘Canes.
