Werenski is ‘day to day’ after Ovechkin hit

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Columbus Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella says defenseman Zach Werenski is “day to day” after leaving a game with an injury.

The 19-year-old rookie apparently hurt his shoulder Sunday night when hit by Washington’s Alex Ovechkin in the third period of the Blue Jackets’ 3-2 loss. He crumpled to the ice, then went to the dressing room and didn’t return.

Werenski, who holds Columbus franchise records for points and assists by a rookie, didn’t practice with the team Monday. Tortorella didn’t provide other details.

Columbus plays in Pittsburgh tomorrow.
