It appears the Columbus Blue Jackets are in the market for another centre.
The Athletic‘s Blue Jackets beat writer Aaron Portzline reported Friday the club’s desire to add talent down the middle has intensified following a shoulder injury to 26-year-old forward Max Domi.
Domi, 26, underwent surgery on his right shoulder Thursday to repair a labral tear, the Blue Jackets announced. He’s expected to miss five to six months, which means he’ll miss at least the first month of the 2021-22 season.
“Max had been experiencing some discomfort in his shoulder, which he brought to our attention last week, and a subsequent examination revealed a labral tear,” Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said in a statement.
