Columbus, OH, United States (4E Sports) – Columbus Blue Jackets forward Marian Gaborik will be out indefinitely after he sustained a broken collarbone against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said the team placed Gaborik on the injured reserve list Saturday, one day after he came off IR after missing 17 games with a sprained knee.

Gaborik suffered the injury after he was sandwiched between Philadelphia players Braydon Coburn and Zac Rinaldo while taking a shot midway through the first period. It appeared that he was hit in the head by Rinaldo.

Teammate Nick Foligno picked up the rebound and fed Ryan Johansen, who scored at 10:43 to put the Blue Jackets ahead 1-0.

Gaborik, who got the second assist on the goal, got up slowly and immediately skated off the ice to the dressing room. The Blue Jackets won the game, 6-3.

The 31-year-old Gaborik has five goals and 12 points in 18 games this season.
