Goalie Bobrovsky to miss All-Star game with injury
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will miss the NHL All-Star game — on home ice — on Sunday due to a lower-body injury.
The Russian, injured on Wednesday in a 4-0 loss to Winnipeg, will be replaced by St. Louis goalie Brian Elliott.
The Blue Jackets did not reveal a timetable for Bobrovsky’s return.
Bobrovsky, selected to participate in his first All-Star game, has a 16-2-15 record with a 2.85 goals-against average, .913 save percentage and one shutout in 33 games this season.
The 2013 Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL’s top goalie, he underwent tests on Thursday.
