Gaborik (knee) is expected to be activated from IR and play on Saturday.
Gaborik has been sidelined for almost five weeks with a knee sprain. In his first full season with the Blue Jackets, he was slow out of the gate registering 11 points (6G /5A) in 17 games. In 16 contests without Gaborik the Blue Jackets went 7-7-2. He skated on a line with Artem Anisimov and Nick Foligno in practice this morning so expect that to be a line tomorrow, barring any changes in the game-day skate.
