David Savard (oblique strain) is questionable to return Tuesday.
Savard partook in a full practice on Monday so his return is imminent but it may not come against the Islanders as the Blue Jackets kick off a stretch that sees them play 15 of their next 20 games at home. Savard has already missed 15 games this season after playing the full 82 game slate last season. "You see guys going down all the time, but I’ve never really been part of that before," Savard said. "It’s tough. You rehab, work out and try to get back as quick as possible, but it’s hard. Sometimes your body doesn’t work like you want it to." Savard has a goal and 16 points in 39 games this season. His fantasy value is limited at this time. Feb 9 - 5:52 AM
