Blue Jackets place veteran left-winger Modin on injured list

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets placed left-winger Fredrik Modin on injured reserve with a lower-body injury Tuesday.

The move is retroactive to Saturday when Modin was injured in the Blue Jackets' 5-1 win at Carolina. He was evaluated by team physicians when the club returned to Columbus and is expected to miss at least a week.

Modin also spent time on the injured list in October and November with a groin injury.

The 34-year-old has nine goals and 16 assists in 49 games this season. In 813 career NHL games, he has 220 goals and 221 assists with the Blue Jackets, Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs.
