Blue Jackets’ Atkinson (upper-body) leaves game against Bruins
The Columbus Blue Jackets will be without winger Cam Atkinson for the remainder of Saturday’s game against the Boston Bruins.
According to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch, Atkinson suffered an upper-body injury and will not return to the game. The injury appeared to occur on a harmless looking hit along the boards from defenseman Matt Bartkowski early in the opening period.
The 25-year-old Atkinson has eight goals and 14 points in 32 games this season.
