Columbus’ Tyutin on IR, expected to miss 4-6 weeks
It appears as if the Columbus Blue Jackets did indeed trade for Jordan Leopold in part because of injury issues: Fedor Tyutin is headed to injured reserve and is expected to miss four-to-six weeks, the Columbus Dispatch’s Shawn Mitchell reports.
Tyutin appeared to hurt his left knee (officially a “lower-body injury”) in a collision with Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek.
The 31-year-old has two assists in 16 games so far in 2014-15. He’s seen a drop in ice time lately; after averaging more than 24 minutes per contest in both 2011-12 and 2012-13, he slipped to 21:25 last season and is averaging 20:18 per night so far this year.
Tyutin (undisclosed) is questionable for Tuesday’s game.
There is no word when Tyutin suffered the injury, but it was likely during the Blue Jackets loss to the Lightning on Saturday. With no idea what the injury is, it is impossible to say what might happen, so for now consider him questionable and monitor his status during tomorrow’s morning skate.
