COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Columbus Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno will miss one to two weeks with a lower-body injury.
Foligno was injured in Sunday’s 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh. After the game, teammate Cam Atkinson said Foligno was cut by a skate.
Foligno has 13 goals and 13 assists in 59 games for the Blue Jackets, who are in a tight race to make the playoffs.
The team also said defenseman Markus Nutivaara is day to day with an upper-body injury, and defenseman Dean Kukan is expected to miss a week after also being hurt in Sunday’s game.
