Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch reports that Sergei Bobrovsky will miss at least a month of action with a groin injury.

Bobrovsky was all set to play in net in the All-Star game which is being played in Columbus, so that was a big blow as well. He had flown in his father from Siberia to watch the All-Star festivities, only to pick up the injury to the right side of his groin. "It is sad, really sad," Bobrovsky said with a wilting voice. "I wanted to play in front of my fans, with my teammates (Ryan Johansen and Foligno). It’s the first time (as an) All-Star for me. It was the first time for my city. It was so special, and I am so disappointed right now."

Sergei Bobrovsky's groin injury is to his right side unlike his previous groin injury last season which was on the left side.

Bobrovsky missed 14 games with the injury in 2013-14 and this one will keep him out 'a while' according to GM Jarmo Kekalainen. Anton Forsberg is expected to be recalled after the All-Star game and he could see a lot of action, sharing the net with Curtis McElhinney.

Columbus Blue Jackets' GM Jarmo Kekalainen has said that "it's gonna be a while" for star goalie Sergei Bobrovsky.

Bob is sidelined with a right groin injury he suffered Wednesday's final game before this weekend's All-Star break. Through 33 games and 26 starts, he's put forth a 16-15-2 record with a .913 save percentage and a 2.85 GAA. The Blue Jackets come into the break 25th in the NHL with 43 points in the standings. While backup Curtis McElhinney will continue to see plenty of time, look for outstanding AHL Springfield goalie Anton Forsberg to see some action with the big boys.

Sergei Bobrovsky won't be able to attend the All-Star Game after he sustained a lower-body injury Wednesday night.

Columbus doesn't have a timetable for his return. Bobrovsky was selected to take part in his first All-Star Game and it would've be fun for him to do so in front of the Blue Jackets' crowd. St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott will take Bobrovsky's place.

Sergei Bobrovsky was forced to leave Wednesday's game with the Jets with an apparent lower body injury.

He looked to kick his leg out on a shot attempt and stretched out a muscle the wrong way. It has a been a nightmare of a season so far for Bobrovsky injuries wise, but he looked to be getting back on the right track of late until this occurrence. Good news is that the All-Star break is here and he and the Blue Jackets will have plenty of time to figure out a proper diagnosis. Hopefully it's just a precaution as we will know more with his MRI scheduled for tomorrow. He will likely miss the All-Star game festivities.

Sergei Bobrovsky will be in net for the Blue Jackets Wednesday in Winnipeg.

Bobrovsky will look for redemption Wednesday night against the Jets after dropping his previous game with them, 4-2, back on November 25th. On the season, he has a 16-14-2 record, 2.80 goals-against-average, and .915 save percentage but has not fared well in his career versus the Jets, recording a 1-3-1 record, 3.89 GAA, and .881 save percentage.

Sergei Bobrovsky will be in goal for the Blue Jackets Monday night against the Wild.

Bobrovsky will look for his first win in five starts in Minnesota. If previous results mean anything, then it would be very wise to start him tonight as he has a 4-1 record, 1.55 goals-against-average, and .944 save percentage in five career stars against the Wild.

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 24 of 26 shots in the Blue Jackets' 2-1 loss to the Rangers.

Bobrovsky has now lost four straight games, but he's had some unlucky results in back-to-back games. Bobrovsky allowed three power play goals in his last start against Montreal, and he gave up only two goals tonight. The 26-year-old's record falls to 15-14-2, and he has a 2.86 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage. He hasn't won a game since signing a contract extension on January 9th.

Sergei Bobrovsky will face the New York Rangers on Friday night.

Through 30 games and 24 starts, Bobrovsky has a 15-13-2 record with a .913 save percentage and a 2.88 GAA. Not exactly what we've come to expect from the former Vezina-winner. His career as a Blue Jacket against the Rangers however is stellar, 2-2-0 in four starts with just 10 goals against.
Jan 16 - 5:43 PM

Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky allowed three consecutive power-play goals in the final 8:30 of the third period before he and the Columbus Blue Jackets fell 3-2 to the visiting Montreal Canadiens Wednesday night.

This one couldn't be blamed on Bobrovsky but he's had a rough go lately, giving up 12 goals in his past three games. He stopped 28 shots before the Canadiens bounced back. Bobrovsky's goals-against average is now 2.88 and his save percentage, .913. The former Vezina Trophy winner is only 15-13-2 on the season.
Jan 14 - 10:22 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky will get the nod on Wednesday against Montreal.

Bobrovsky has a 5-2-0 record, 2.59 GAA, and .917 save percentage in seven career games against the Canadiens. Maybe playing against them will help him bounce back after allowing nine goals in his past two contests.
Jan 14 - 9:11 AM

Sergei Bobrovsky was roughed up for five goals on 37 shots in the Blue Jackets’ 5-2 loss to the Islanders on Saturday night.

The All-Star didn’t have his best night, giving up one in the first, three in the second and one more in the third. In fact, he’s been off an on over the last two weeks. Bobrovsky sports a 2.88 goals-against average and .914 save percentage this season.
Jan 10 - 9:37 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky will get the start Saturday night against the New York Islanders.

While Bobrovsky's record of 15-11-2 this season with a 2.80 GAA and a .915 save percentage is less than what we've come to expect of him, his career against the Islanders has been excellent. Bob has won 10 of 12 starts while allowing just 22 total goals.
