The injuries continue to mount for the Blue Jackets. Letestu was playing more minutes than ever because Columbus is so shorthanded right now, but now they will be without their 29-year-old centre for 2-4 weeks. Expect some more call-ups to come to replace all of the injured veterans.
Blue Jackets forward Mark Letestu, out since Jan. 6 because of a broken right hand, was activated from injured reserve and will return to the lineup tonight. He’ll skate on a line with Vinny Prospal and center Jeff Carter.
Letestu could have some value down the stretch playing on the second line. He has five goals and 10 points in 25 games with the Blue Jackets.
