Tyutin (nose) will not travel to New Jersey, per Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella. Tyutin, who reportedly missed practice Monday, is dealing with the effects of a broken nose sustained in a game last Friday against the Predators. Andrew Bodnarchuk filled in for Tyutin on the blue line in Sunday's loss to the Sharks, and it seems as though he will do the same when the team squares off against New Jersey.
Tyutin (nose) did not participate in practice Monday, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports. Tyutin's injury occurred during Friday's contest against the Predators, limiting him to just 6:37 of ice time and holding him out of Saturday's contest as well. It's now been revealed that he's dealing with a broken nose, but his absence from practice Monday doesn't necessarily rule him out for Wednesday's contest. Check back for more information on his status as the game draws nearer.
Tyutin (upper body) won't play Sunday against the Sharks. Tyutin suffered the upper-body injury in Friday's game against the Predators, limiting him to just 6:37 of ice time. The team hasn't specified the injury beyond upper body, but it will force him out of Sunday's contest at a minimum. The newly-recalled Andrew Bodnarchuk will draw into the lineup in his place, making Tyutin's next chance to return will come Wednesday against the Devils.
Tyutin suffered a lower-body injury during Thursday's game against the Predators and will not return, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports. Tyutin's injury leaves the Blue Jackets extremely shorthanded along the blue line with Cody Golubef suffering an upper-body injury as well. If one or both end up missing games beyond Friday, the club may be forced to recall another defenseman, but more should become available about Tyutin's status at some point before the team's next game
Tyutin will play Tuesday against the Sharks, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Tyutin has seen sporadic playing time this 2015-16 season, however, he will get the call over a healthy Dalton Prout on Tuesday. Prout and Tyutin have had opportunities to prove themselves on the back end of the Bluejackets' defense this year, but neither defensemen has been able to prove themselves worthy of a permanent spot as they both have one assist to show for their efforts this season.
