  • Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: May never play in NHL again

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/15/17) Clarkson's back will likely never allow him to play hockey again, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    It's been over 11 months since he saw any game action, and a few weeks ago his back was so stiff he couldn't even get out of bed in the morning. Clarkson is dealing with three degenerative discs in his spine, and the only surgical remedy -- having his spine fused -- would completely end any possibility of a comeback. His contract runs through the 2019-20 season but is mostly covered by insurance, so expect the 32-year-old to essentially remain a permanent resident on the Blue Jackets' long-term injury list, barring a miraculous recovery.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Still not ready to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/9/16) Clarkson (back) isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Ducks.

    Clarkson was taken off the long-term injured reserve last week but will now fail to crack the lineup for a third consecutive game since then. There's still no timetable for his return, but those interest in his availability can expect an update on his status once he's ready to return to the Blue Jackets' lineup.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Taken off LTIR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/2/16) Clarkson (back) has been taken off long-term injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    Clarkson's removal from LTIR suggests that he's moving closer to game action. However, the Blue Jackets do not play again until Friday, so it will be worth monitoring his status ahead of that home contest versus the visiting Canadiens.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Placed on long-term IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/11/16) Clarkson (back) was placed on long-term injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Clarkson's designation for LTIR should come as no surprise after he failed his physical coming into training camp. The winger will miss at least the next 10 games, but it could certainly be longer given his injury-prone nature. With that in mind, fantasy owners would be taking a big risk giving the 32-year-old a roster spot.

    Blue Jackets' David Clarkson: Fails physical

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/21/16) Clarkson failed his training camp physical Wednesday due to a back injury, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Clarkson will miss at least the start of training camp if not longer. The 32-year-old missed the bulk of the 2015-16 season due to various maladies and it seems this year will be no different. If he is unable to return, the Blue Jackets will be able to get cap relief as his seven-year contract is insured. Fantasy owners may want to avoid the winger given the uncertainty of his future.
