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.
