Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen said that Sergei Bobrovsky's repeated groin injuries aren't a result of him rushing back.

Bobrovsky is on the injured reserve list for a groin injury for the third time this season. "It’s tough to put this in words, because I’ve been assured that there was no way he came back too early either time," Kekalainen said. "He was fully healed, with full strength, full range of motion ... everything was back to normal. In everybody’s mind who has worked with him, he was not coming back too early at all." Kekalainen doesn't think Bobrovsky's latest injury will result in him missing the rest of the season, but given the goaltender's recent history, he will see a new specialist this week.

Sergei Bobrovsky's persistent groin problems can't be address through surgery, according to Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen.

The Blue Jackets put Bobrovsky on the injured reserve list due to a groin injury for the third time this season. It's a strain to the same muscle he's previously injured, but the silver lining is that this issue is believed to be less serious than the previous two. That being said, there's no timetable for his return.

For the third time this season, Sergei Bobrovsky is on the sidelines with a groin injury.

Bobrovsky attempted to return on Tuesday, but he only lasted a game and a half before his groin problems forced him to be shutdown again. He's been placed back on the injured reserve list. He's been consistently pulling the same groin muscle in the same area. There's no timetable for his return, but we wouldn't expect him to be back anytime soon given the nagging nature of his injury.
Jan 22 - 2:10 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky left Thursday's game against the Flames with a lower-body injury and he won't return.

It's a tough blow for both Bobrovsky and the Jackets. The 27-year-old made a return to the lineup in Tuesday's game against Washington after missing 17 games with a lower-body injury. It's unclear if this injury is linked to the last one. He should be considered day-to-day for now.
Jan 21 - 8:39 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky will play between the pipes on Thursday.

Bobrovsky will be looking to rebound after allowing five goals on 27 shots against Washington on Tuesday. He has a 2.63 GAA and .912 save percentage in 26 contests this season.
Jan 21 - 10:53 AM

Sergei Bobrovsky allowed five goals on 27 shots in a 6-3 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Bobrovsky and the Columbus Blue Jackets were outmatched by the Capitals, who were powered by two power play goals and five multi-point efforts from Washington skaters. Bobrovsky's record falls to 11-13-1 with a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage. The 27-year-old has allowed four or more goals eight times this season.
Jan 19 - 10:08 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game versus Washington.

He has missed 17 games since suffering a groin injury on Dec. 8 against Los Angeles. Bobrovsky was playing great before he got hurt and he will have to be at his best if the Blue Jackets are going to upset the Capitals.
Jan 19 - 4:55 PM

Coach John Tortorella hasn't decided who will start Tuesday, but it will Sergei Bobrovsky if he is ready to play.

The Blue Jackets bench boss expects to know later on Monday whether Bobrovsky is good to go versus Washington. The team's top netminder was healthy enough to serve as the backup on Saturday night.
Jan 18 - 2:15 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) has been taken off of the injured reserve list.

Bobrovsky lasted played on Dec. 8, but it looks like he'll at very least serve as the Blue Jackets' backup on Saturday. We just have to hope this doesn't prove to be a false start, as was the case when Bobrovsky was activated on Dec. 30, only to find himself back on the injured reserve list days later due to a setback. He has a 2.52 GAA and .916 save percentage in 25 contests in 2015-16.
Jan 15 - 2:38 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) took part in Friday's practice.

It was a positive experience for Bobrovsky, so much so that he might dress for Saturday's contest. He hasn't played since Dec. 8, although he was briefly activated on Dec. 30 before returning to the injured reserve list because of a setback.
Jan 15 - 1:32 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) skated on his own on Monday.

Bobrovsky didn't take part in Monday's practice, so he's likely not close to returning. Still it's good to see him on the ice at all. He last played on Dec. 8, but was briefly activated on Dec. 30 before being returned to the IR list on Jan. 3 due to a setback.
Jan 12 - 10:32 AM

The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed Sergei Bobrovsky back on injured reserve with a groin injury.

Bobrovsky came off the injured reserve list on Wednesday and was slated to get the start in goal on Saturday but a recurrence of the groin injury forced the Blue Jackets to recall Anton Forsberg and place Bobrovsky on the injured list. Bobrovsky is 11-12-1 this season with a .916 save percentage this season. Keep him reserved for now.
Jan 3 - 9:12 AM

Look for Sergei Bobrovsky to get the start in goal for Columbus Saturday.

It will be the goalie's first game since December 8 as he was on the injured reserve list with a groin injury. Bobrovsky is 11-12-1 this season with a .916 save percentage but he got off to a very slow start so his fantasy value is actually quite good at this time.
Jan 2 - 7:28 AM

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) has been activated off injured reserve by Columbus.

He has been absent for the past 10 games after suffering a groin strain on Dec. 8 against Los Angeles. Bobrovsky was playing well before getting hurt and he will look to continue that trend when he gets back into the crease for the Blue Jackets.
