The Ducks signed Jared Boll to a two-year contract.
Boll, 30, had just three points (1G / 2A) in 30 games with the Blue Jackets last season. He is clearly not known for his offensive ability, but more for his physical play. Boll has just 62 career points versus 1195 penalty minutes in 518 games. When looking at advanced metrics, Boll ranks as one of the worst players in the NHL, so this signing is surprising to say the least.
The Blue Jackets have placed Jared Boll (foot) on injured reserve.
Boll blocked a shot off of his foot on Tuesday and will miss at least the next seven days after he was placed on IR this afternoon. Look for him to miss at least three games. With Boll out, the Blue Jackets have recalled Josh Andernson from Lake Erie (AHL).
After serving his three-game suspension, Boll will be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Islanders. Boll will replace Marko Dano in the lineup. Boll has five points (1G / 4A), a minus-12 rating and 109 PIMS in 71 games this season.
The Blue Jackets have activated Jared Boll (ankle) from injured reserve.
Boll has been sidelined since early December after undergoing surgery to repaid a torn tendon in his ankle. Boll has registered 25 goals, 28 assists and 1,001 penalty minutes in 409 career games with the Jackets. He ranks second on the club’s all-time penalty minutes list (Jody Shelley, 1,025) and is one of six players to play in 400 or more games as a Blue Jacket.
Columbus Blue Jackets right wing Jared Boll will be sidelined three to four months following surgery to repair a torn tendon in his ankle.
Boll, 27, has appeared in 21 games this season, scoring one goal and adding 38 penalty minutes. He was placed on Injured Reserve on November 26 retroactive to November 22 when he logged 9:07 of ice time at Vancouver. “Our initial hope was that Jared would be able to return to the lineup with rest and rehabilitation, but it became apparent over the past few days that surgery was the best course of action,” said General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen.
