Dubinsky (elbow) was activated from injured reserve by the Blue Jackets Tuesday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Dubinsky will be active for the Blue Jackets' contest on Wednesday against the Devils but he likely is not back at 100 percent yet. The sooner he can get back for Columbus the better as he is one of their top six forwards when healthy.
Dubinsky (elbow) declared himself doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Devils, even though he will travel with the team to New Jersey, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports. Dubinsky suffered a cut to his elbow that became infected and he's hovering around the final week of an original 2-to-3 week timetable for his return. He was able to practice Monday, which is an encouraging sign as he continues to recover from the elbow issue.
Dubinsky (elbow) returned to practice Monday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Dubinsky still has about a week to go from his initial timetable of 2-to-3 weeks, and has already been ruled out this Wednesday, but it's still an encouraging development. There's no set date for a return as of now, but he figures to continue skating in the meantime.
Dubinsky's elbow injury is described as complications stemming from a cut he received last week, the Columbus Dispatch reports. The cut became infected and his elbow swelled up just prior to Friday's game against the Penguins, forcing him out of the lineup and to injured reserve. Dubinsky will be given plenty of time to take care of the infection, and while a two-week absence would see him return Nov. 28 in St. Louis, a home game on Dec. 4 against the Panthers might be a more realistic date for him to rejoin the lineup.
Dubinsky has landed on injured reserve with an elbow injury and will miss 2-to-3 weeks, per Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella. Dubinsky was surprisingly scratched from Friday's game against the Penguins with an upper-body injury and apparently it's more specifically an elbow malady. It's not clear how Dubinsky sustained the injury, and we're not sure whether it concerns his right or left elbow, but at any rate, this is a tough blow for a Blue Jackets team struggling to climb out of the cellar of the Eastern Conference. Nick Foligno could see an uptick in minutes while Dubinsky is away from game ice.
