Columbus Blue Jackets defenceman Zach Werenski will miss the next four weeks with a shoulder injury.
Werenski suffered the injury early in Saturday’s game against the New York Islanders are colliding with Islanders captain Anders Lee. The 22-year-old skated straight to the bench after the collision, favouring his left shoulder, and did not return to the game.
Werenski had off-season surgery on the same shoulder in July.
The eighth overall pick from the 2015 NHL Draft leads all Blue Jackets defencemen in goals (six) and points (16).
