Jenner (finger) was placed on injured reserve Thursday. Jenner is expected to miss around six weeks with a fractured finger, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 27-year-old forward will miss the rest of the regular season at a minimum, and the Blue Jackets would likely need to advance past the first round of the playoffs in order for Jenner to have a chance to return in 2020-21. He picked up eight goals and 17 points through 41 games before fracturing his finger.
Jenner will miss an estimated six weeks with a broken finger, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports. The Blue Jackets are currently on the outside looking in in terms of the playoff picture, and they'd likely need to advance past the first round in order for Jenner to have a chance to return, so the 27-year-old forward's 2020-21 campaign may have come to an end. If that ends up being the case, Jenner will finish the season having picked up eight goals and 17 points in 41 contests.
Jenner (wrist) is expected to miss time after leaving Tuesday's game versus the Lightning with an injury, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports. Jenner was struck by a shot from teammate Patrik Laine in the third period of Tuesday's contest. He immediately went to the locker room and did not return. Head coach John Tortorella said the team is "not so sure we're going to get good news" in reference to Jenner's status. A further update on the 27-year-old should arise before Thursday's game versus the Lightning.
Jenner scored a goal on two shots, supplied an assist and added four hits in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Stars. Jenner opened the scoring late in the second period. He nearly had a second goal, but instead settled for an assist when it deflected in off of Eric Robinson. Jenner continues to be a pleasant surprise in the middle six with eight goals and seven helpers through 25 contests. He's added 52 shots on net, 46 hits and a minus-2 rating.
Jenner produced a short-handed goal on four shots in a 4-2 loss to Nashville on Saturday. Jenner deposited a backdoor tap-in to finish off a short-handed rush, pulling the Blue Jackets to within 2-1 less than four minutes into the second period. After going scoreless through four games to begin the month, Jenner has contributed three goals and an assist over his last five games. A more valuable real-life player than fantasy asset, the Columbus captain shouldn't be rostered outside of deep leagues.
