• Three points in three preseason games

    News: Boone Jenner finished the preseason with two goals and three points in three preseason games.
    Analysis: He also had 10 shots on goal. Boone Jenner will most likely open the season skating on the second line with Brandon Dubinsky, and if he can stay healthy, the third-year winger should be able to top his previous career highs of 16 goals and 29 points.

    Analysis: Boone Jenner's return from the back injury was believed to be forthcoming after he was cleared to travel with the Blue Jackets on their ongoing three-game road trip, and his activation now verifies as much. The winger had been out since Dec. 18 due to injury and has appeared in only 20 games this season, posting 12 points and a minus-8 rating. He could fill a top-six role immediately upon returning.

    Analysis: Per the report, Boone Jenner looked spry at Tuesday's practice, but it looks like he's in line to miss a couple more games, barring a change of plans. Jenner, who last suited up for the Blue Jackets on Dec. 18, notched 12 points in 20 games prior to sustaining his back injury.

  • Jackets' Jenner Takes Ice After Practice

    News: Boone Jenner (back) took to the ice with a few teammates after practice Monday.

  • Blue Jackets' Jenner Not Ready For Practice Yet

    News: Coach Todd Richards said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Boone Jenner (back) to resume practicing with the team next week.
    Analysis: Boone Jenner began skating on his own a few days ago and has reported improvement with his fractured back, but he's not quite ready to absorb contact in the immediate future. The winger, who has been out since Dec. 20 with the injury, likely won't return until mid-March at the earliest.
  • Jackets' Jenner Gets Back On Ice

    News: Boone Jenner has resumed light skating in recent days, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
    Analysis: While getting back on the ice is always a positive development for players working back from injury, Boone Jenner likely still has a long road ahead of him before returning to game action. He suffered a back stress fracture on Dec. 20, and is just now getting back on his skates. He'll need to practice in full, and likely go on a AHL conditioning stint, before returning to the Blue Jackets' active roster.
  • Blue Jackets' Jenner Not Progressing

    News: Boone Jenner has yet to resume skating since suffering a back stress fracture Dec. 20, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
    Analysis: The Blue Jackets projected Boone Jenner to miss 1-to-2 months when he first suffered the injury, but his lack of progress to this point suggests he'll be out for well beyond that timetable. For what it's worth general manager Jarmo Kekalainen indicated that the Blue Jackets have no intention of shutting Jenner down for the season. However, with the team's playoff hopes essentially nil thanks to a torrent of injuries, it wouldn't be a surprise if Kekalainen changed his tune over the next few weeks.
