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.
Tyutin (ankle) will likely be back in the Blue Jackets lineup Saturday.
Tyutin has missed the last nine games with an ankle injury, but it sure sounds like he will return tonight in Minnesota. Former Wild Nick Schultz will be a healthy scratch and Tyutin will be paired with James Wisniewski.
Tyutin (ankle) is "very close" could play on Saturday vs. the Wild.
Tyutin has missed the last games with an ankle injury. He is arguably the Blue Jackets best defenseman and his veteran presence on the blueline will certainly help a Columbus team in search of a playoff berth. Monitor his status during Saturday's morning skate.
Tyutin (ankle) will begin practising with the Blue Jacekts on Thursday.
Tyutin will miss his eighth straight game after suffering an ankle injury in the Sochi Olympics. With Ryan Murray out for the season and the Blue Jackets in the thick of the playoff race, they could use Tyutin's services as soon as possible. This is a step in the right direction for the 30-year-old.
Tyutin will miss his fourth consecutive game tonight with an ankle injury that he suffered in Sochi. With Ryan Murray out for the foreseeable future, they could use Tyutin back on the blueline. He is still expected to be out a couple of weeks.
The Blue Jackets have placed Fedor Tyutin (ankle) on injured reserve.
Tyutin was injured in the Olympics while representing Russia on home soil. He has 24 points (4G / 20A) in 53 games this season. The Blue Jackets have recalled defenseman Dalton Prout from Springfield (AHL) as a corresponding roster move.
Tyutin is expected to miss two to three weeks due to an ankle injury suffered while playing for Russia in the Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Tyutin, 30, has four goals and 20 assists with 30 penalty minutes and a plus-6 rating in 53 games with the Blue Jackets this season. Tyutin had four penalty minutes and was plus-1 in five games at this year's Olympics. Tim Erixon will likely be recalled and fill-in for Tyutin on Thursday.
Tyutin missed the last two games with an illness but should draw back into the lineup on Tuesday vs. Los Angeles. Tyutin had a solid first day back, so he is expected to play tomorrow, however monitor his status following the gameday skate for confirmation.
Tyutin (illness) is absent from the Blue Jackets morning skate.
Tyutin was not at practice on Thursday either so his status for tonight's game is in serious jeopardy. The Blue Jackets recalled Dalton Prout on Thursday and he will slide into the lineup if Tyutin is unfit to play.
Tyutin left Monday's game after playing just 6:43 and did not return. There is no word if this is just a maintenance day for Tyutin, but monitor his status leading up to Friday's meeting with the Hurricanes. If he is unable to go, Dalton Prout will play.
