    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Placed on injured reserve

    Clarkson (upper body) was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday. Clarkson will be out of the lineup for a while according to coach John Tortorella. The winger has struggled on both ends of the ice, tallying only two points in 18 games while racking up a minus-7. With the 31-year-old injured, Jared Boll is likely to see increased ice time.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Could miss an extended period

    Clarkson (upper body) will be out for an extended period of time, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports. Clarkson suffered the injury during Saturday's game against Washington, and head coach John Tortorella believes it will keep the forward out for some time. Expect Jared Boll to take Clarkson's spot in the lineup for the time being.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Suffered injury Saturday

    Clarkson suffered an upper-body injury in Saturday's game against the Capitals and did not return. Clarkson was limited to just 3:46 of ice time in Saturday's contest before leaving due to injury. He was replaced by Jared Boll on the fourth line during Monday's practice, but he hasn't officially been ruled out Tuesday at this point. Another update should be provided either later Monday or after morning skate Tuesday.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Will spectate Tuesday

    Clarkson will be a healthy scratch Tuesday night against the Stars. Columbus needs all of the offense it can get against Dallas --- currently the top team in the league -- and Clarkson likely wouldn't have been a factor with the puck had he gotten the starting nod. Clarkson has just two points in 17 games this season and it seems that his 30-goal output with New Jersey in 2011-12 is not only an outlier, but a distant memory as well.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Notches first goal of the season Thursday

    Clarkson picked up his first goal of the season in Thursday's 7-5 win over the Coyotes. He's gotten off the fourth line recently, and the 15:35 TOI that Clarkson received Thursday was a season high. It's hard to expect any kind of consistent offense from him given how he's looked for the last few seasons, but if he keeps getting consistent ice time he might chip in the occasional goal.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Activated off IR

    Clarkson (back) was activated off of injured reserve Wednesday. A previous report suggested that Clarkson could return to the lineup at some point this week, and his activation from injured reserve Wednesday certainly backs that up. His next chance to play comes Thursday against the Jets, and it certainly seems as though he'll draw in.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Could return from back injury later this week

    Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen thinks Clarkson (back) could return to the lineup later this week, the Columbus Dispatch reports. The big winger's been out since Nov. 3, so he'll likely need a couple of practices under his belt before he's ready to play again. Clarkson's first opportunity to get back into the lineup could come Thursday in Winnipeg, but a Saturday return at home against the islanders is also possible.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Returns to health

    Clarkson (back) has been deemed "ready to go" by head coach John Tortorella, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports. Though he may be healthy, it looks unlikely that Clarkson will draw into the lineup Tuesday against Los Angeles. Clarkson didn't skate with a line during Monday's practice, despite being a full-participant.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Practices Thursday

    Clarkson (back) practiced fully Thursday. Clarkson skated on his own Monday, and was cleared to practice fully Thursday, indicating a return to game action may be on the horizon for the 31-year-old winger. However, he will likely need to log a number of full practices before drawing back into Columbus' lineup, so a return to action Friday against the Panthers seems highly unlikely at this point in time.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Skates Monday

    Clarkson (back) skated on his own Monday, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports. The man who was once viewed as a "premier-power forward" after scoring 30 goals in 2011-12 has been out since November 5 with a back injury. Monday is the first report of Clarkson skating since that point, so it should be some more time before Clarkson is ready to return. Even when he does return, Clarkson is not a viable fantasy option, scoring just 27 points in 129 games since 2013-14, including one point in eight games this season.
