Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) is expected to skate on his own Saturday morning.

The Blue Jackets will not practice on Saturday morning so this skate could determine whether or not Bobrovsky is ready to return to action as he has been out of the lineup since January 21. If not, Oscar Dansk could get his first NHL start in his career.
Feb 28 - 7:11 AM

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) took part in Wednesday's optional skate.

Bobrovsky might be available to play on Saturday or Sunday, but nothing has been decided. "It's just day-to-day, till we get Bob to where he's healthy and he says he's 100 percent and ready to go," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. "He's progressing. Still a little sore, but more aggressive out on the ice each day." Bobrovsky hasn't played since Jan. 21.

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) skated and practiced on Saturday.

Bobrovsky stayed on the ice after practice and got in some extra work. He has been out of action since January 21 but is getting very close to returning. He could be back this week so get ready to activate him.

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) will take part in Saturday's morning skate.

He isn't expected to play against Montreal, but coach Todd Richards said Bobrovsky could be available to return next week. He has been sidelined since Jan. 21 with a groin injury.
Feb 20 - 2:26 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) was on the ice with the Blue Jackets on Wednesday.

It was the first time Bobrovsky skated with his teammates since he sustained the injury just before the All-Star break. Bobrovsky also took a few shots while he was on the ice, although it was far from a significant test of his reflexes. "They were kind of generic shots, but we got him out with the guys and he took part in a couple of shooting drills early," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. "And then he stayed out and worked with (goaltending coach Ian Clark) after practice. I don't know if I'd say he's ahead of schedule, but he's moving along well."
Feb 19 - 10:03 AM

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) might be able to return before the end of February.

Bobrovsky hasn't practiced with the Blue Jackets yet, but he is skating on his own. He has a disappointing 2.85 GAA and .913 save percentage in 33 contests this season, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him bounce back in 2015-16. The Blue Jackets have dealt with more than their fair share of injuries this season and are consequently a better team than their record implies. With that in mind, they should play better next season and that in turn will help Bobrovsky.
Feb 16 - 1:03 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) has spent the last two days skating on his own.

"Just making some easy movements, slow motion," Bobrovsky said. "I don't push too hard. Day by day, you know?" Bobrovsky's next step would be to work with goalie coach Ian Clark, which might start in two or three days. Based on his original timetable, he shouldn't be expected to return for at least another two weeks.
Feb 11 - 11:02 AM

Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to be out of action for four-to-six weeks with a groin injury.

The Blue Jackets placed him on injured reserve retroactive to January 21. Anton Forsberg has been recalled from the minors to take his spot on the roster.
Jan 26 - 12:25 PM

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."
Jan 25 - 7:23 AM

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.
Jan 24 - 7:25 AM

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.
Jan 23 - 7:49 PM

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.
Jan 22 - 3:42 PM

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.
Jan 21 - 10:28 PM

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.
