The Columbus Blue Jackets won’t have Artemi Panarin or Sergei Bobrovsky in the lineup Thursday when they take on the Florida Panthers as both stars battle an illness.

The Blue Jackets have recalled forward Zac Dalpe and goaltender Jean-Francois Berube, on emergency conditions, from AHL Cleveland, and assigned defenceman Gabriel Carlsson to the AHL. Backup goaltender Joonas Korpisalo is expected to start against the Panthers.

Panarin, 27, leads the Blue Jackets in scoring this season with five goals and 18 points in 18 games.

Bobrovsky, 30, has a 6-6-0 record with 2.74 goals-against average and .913 save percentage.
