The Columbus Blue Jackets seem to have turned the corner after a brutal start to the season, but the injury bug isn’t doing them any favors.
Goloubef (pictured) was taken to hospital after being hit in the face with a puck.
The injury will require surgery according to beat reporter Aaron Portzline.
The news seems to be a little better for Tyutin:
In a corresponding move, Columbus has recalled Andrew Bodnarchuk from AHL Lake Erie.
The 27-year-old’s only NHL experience came in a five-game stint with the Boston Bruins during the 2009-10 season.
Bodnarchuk has two goals, eight points and 10 penalty minutes in 14 AHL games in ’15-16.
He gives the Jackets six healthy defensemen if Tyutin can’t face the Sharks on Sunday.
