Elbow Injury Lands Dubinsky on IR

On Saturday, just before their game against the Coyotes, the Blue Jackets coaching staff announced that forward Brandon Dubinsky will be on the shelf for the next 2-to-3 weeks with an elbow injury and that he has been placed on the Injured Reserve.

The 29-year old forward had already missed Friday night's contest against Pittsburgh and then was an obvious scratch against the Coyotes last night and it sounds like he'll miss a couple handfuls of contests in the next few weeks as well.

In terms of scoring this season, Dubinsky has been good for the Jackets, picking up 4 goals and 11 points in the first 16 games of the season and even after missing a couple of games, he is currently ranked 130th in pool scoring.

Dubinsky was a 7th round pick for Dale C., taken 183rd overall, which meant that Dale was getting some good value for his pick before the injury.  He has certainly been a bright spot this season, as he currently is one of five players to have a positive ranking, compared to his draft spot on Dale's team.  This could be a painful loss for him over the next couple weeks.

Dale finished Saturday night in 15th place, down a few places from last week's finish, 17 points out of the money.
