Calvert was a late scratch on Tuesday due to the illness and part of the motivation for keeping him grounded could be to simply avoid the disease from spreading further. "We’ve got a few guys fighting it," Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said of the illness. "You get on that plane and it’s a bacteria machine."

Jan 1 - 8:56 AM

Matt Calvert returned to the Columbus lineup Saturday after missing five games with an eye injury and concussion.

Calvert took 36 stitches to his eye and while that has healed nicely, the concussion issues forced him to be on the sidelines longer than he thought he would have to be but he did play two games before he left the lineup. "Midweek there after the second game (Nov. 21 against Colorado), I just wasn’t feeling good," Calvert said. "I think concussions have been a big thing across the league. If you’re not right, you should really tell your trainer. They handled it well and the doctor handled it great. I was in great hands and I’m feeling great right now. Sometimes symptoms don’t pop up until a few days after. I thought I was good, but then two games later I just wasn’t feeling great. I let them know. I went through the protocol and I just wasn’t myself, so I had to take some time off."
