Jody Shelley will join the Columbus Blue Jackets' front office.
Shelley retired after the 2013 season, during which he suffered a hip injury that eventually required surgery. The former enforcer's official title will be broadcast associate and team ambassador. "When I decided to stop playing, the next question was,: 'What do I want to do?' " Shelley said. "I wanted to remain involved in the NHL in some capacity. For me, the Blue Jackets were a perfect fit. ... My wife is from here, we’re settled back in the area, and the way this is working out -- it’s awesome." Fri, Aug 9, 2013 10:20:00 AM

Jody Shelley's hip injury will require surgery.

The date for the procedure hasn't been determined yet and a timetable for his return is uncertain as well. Shelley has played in just one game this season, but he sits often as a healthy scratch. He shouldn't be on your fantasy radar even if you are desperate for penalty minutes.

The Flyers placed Jody Shelley on injured reserve Tuesday due to a hip injury.

Shelley hasn't played since Jan. 24 and the Flyers needed to make a corresponding move after calling up Harry Zolnierczyk earlier Tuesday. Shelley has no fantasy value, so this is more of an FYI.

"It crosses your mind," said Shelley. "But it's not like you dwell on it. I feel great and want to continue. I feel I have more to offer."

Jody Shelley has been suspended for five preseason games and five regular season contests for labeling Toronto's Darryl Boyce from behind on Wednesday night.

"The video clearly shows that Boyce has his back to Shelley well before the contact," said NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan in a video explanation. "Boyce does not put himself in this position immediately prior to, or simultaneously, with the check. Shelley has time to avoid the check completely or at the very least minimize the contact. This is a clear violation of the boarding rule." He will be eligible to return on Oct. 20 when the Flyers host the Washington Capitals.
