News: McElhinney (head, neck) is feeling better and is expected to rejoin the team later this week, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports. Impact: McElhinney suffered a head injury and was placed on injured reserve on Sunday. As a result, he won't be able to return until the end of the weekend at the earliest, but it's an encouraging sign that he's feeling better. He should travel with the club on their upcoming three-game trip to California beginning Thursday.(RotoWire, )

News: The Blue Jackets placed McElhinney on injured reserve Sunday with an upper body injury. Impact: McElhinney will be out at least another week with a head injury suffered in Saturday's game, so the Blue Jackets placed him on injured reserve to open up a roster spot. Anton Forsberg was called up on an emergency basis from AHL Springfield to take McElhinney's place on the roster.(RotoWire, )

News: The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed McElhinney on injured reserve and added goaltender Anton Forsberg to the roster on emergency recall from their American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts. Impact: McElhinney, the backup to top goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, suffered an upper body injury in Saturday's game at Ottawa and is expected to miss at least one week.(STATS, 12:58pm)

News: Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards didn't dismiss the suggestion that McElhinney suffered a head injury or concussion during Saturday's game, the Columbus Dispatch reports. "I'm careful about saying that right now, but obviously he got hit," Richards said. "He was bent over, and Nicky [Foligno] comes sliding into him full-speed." Impact: Should McElhinney be sidelined for any length of time, Anton Forsberg would likely be recalled from AHL Springfield to back up Sergei Bobrovsky.(RotoWire, )

News: McElhinney left Saturday's game against Ottawa with an undisclosed injury, the Columbus Dispatch's Shawn Mitchell reports. Impact: McElhinney was hurt on a strange play in which Nick Foligno accidentally crashed his own goal and left McElhinney down on the ice on all fours. He was down for quite a while before eventually skating off on his own. The extent of the injury is unknown, but Sergei Bobrovksy will finish this one out for Columbus. McElhinney allowed two goals (including one on the play he was injured) on 16 shots before departing.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Todd Richards said the Blue Jackets plan to use McElhinney in the net Saturday against the Senators, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Impact: Assuming Sergei Bobrovsky isn't pulled early from his scheduled start Friday, McElhinney will see his first action of the season against his former team in Ottawa. The 31-year-old backup was merely adequate in 28 games with the Jackets last season, accumulating a 2.70 GAA and .909 save percentage. He figures to see an extremely light workload so long as Bobrovsky remains healthy.(RotoWire, )

News: McElhinney will likely start either Friday or Saturday, the The Columbus Dispatch reports. Impact: McElhinney has yet to play this season, but it appears he will make his debut and give starter Sergei Bobrovsky a rest sometime this weekend.(RotoWire, )
