Brian Gibbons (knee) has now missed roughly five weeks after initially being projected to miss two-to-three.
Despite that, Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards insists that Gibbons hasn't suffered a setback. "It's a knee, so everybody reacts differently," Richards said. "I wouldn't say it's severe, but it's something that has gone on a bit longer. All I know is that he is progressing, too." Gibbons hasn't accompanied the Blue Jackets on their current road trip, so he obviously won't return for Wednesday's game in Winnipeg. Jan 21 - 10:38 AM

Brian Gibbons is expected to battle for a spot on Columbus' fourth line at training camp.

His main competition is slated to come from Corey Tropp, Jerry D'Amigo, Simon Hjalmarsson, Alex Wennberg and Kerby Rychel. Gibbons had five goals and 17 points in 41 games with the Penguins last year, but he did show flashes of offensive skill as well as great speed. His spot on the roster is precarious because he agreed to a two-way deal in July.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed Brian Gibbons to a one-year, two-way deal.

Gibbons had five goals and 17 points in 41 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2013-14. He'll have a tough time earning a spot on the Blue Jackets' opening game roster and even if he does, we doubt he'll have any fantasy value in standard leagues.

"I don't think he adds a physical element against the other team, but he does it with his speed." Tanner Glass was a healthy scratch as a result of Gibbons playing.
