  • Sedlak (ankle) will return to Columbus' lineup Wednesday against the Flames, Tom Reed of The Athletic Cleveland reports. Sedlak has missed the Blue Jackets' last 13 games due to an ankle injury, so he'll likely be eased back into action Wednesday. The 24-year-old forward was only averaging 9:58 of ice time per game before sustaining his injury, so he'll return to a bottom-six role against Calgary.

  • Sedlak (ankle) was able to practice Thursday for the first time since being injured in late October, The Columbus Dispatch reports. He was initially expected to miss six weeks but Sedlak is ahead of schedule in his recovery, and the fact that the Jackets put Zac Dalpe on waivers Thursday would seem to indicate they expect to have Sedlak back in the lineup fairly soon. Once he does return to action, he should slot back in as the fourth-line center.

  • Sedlak (ankle) was injured during practice Monday and will go on injured reserve, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic Cleveland reports. Sedlak was able to leave the practice under his own power but will reportedly miss six weeks with the ailment. The 24-year-old was skating well on the fourth line and had already tallied two goals on the season in eight games. If Sedlak's rehab goes as expected, he should return to the ice in early December.

  • Blue Jackets' Lukas Sedlak: Pots empty-netter Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sedlak scored an empty-net goal to cap Friday's 3-1 win over the Rangers. His first goal of the season provided a bit of redemption for the fourth-line center, as Sedlak took a minor penalty inside the last three minutes of the game with the Jackets clinging to a 2-1 lead, only to get a breakaway attempt that he made no mistake on after getting sprung from the box. The 24-year-old tallied just seven goals in 62 games as a rookie last season, and his current role probably won't afford him many offensive opportunities.

  • Sedlak (upper body) will take the ice for Tuesday's Game 4 against Pittsburgh. Despite the fact that he wasn't able to get much practice time ahead of Tuesday's tilt, head coach John Tortorella likely feels that Sedlak can bring some energy to a team that trails 3-0 in the series. Sedlak has the ability to be an effective bottom-six forward, but with 13 points in 62 games, he's not someone to rely on for offensive production.
