Columbus Blue Jackets’ Derek Dorsett Will Miss Remainder of Season With Broken Clavicle


Columbus Blue Jackets right winger Derek Dorsett will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2013 season with an upper body injury. Following the Blue Jackets 2-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks in overtime, it was reported that Dorsett suffered a broken clavicle.

According to Shawn Mitchell of  the Columbus Dispatch, the 26-year-old forward suffered the injury after a hit from Canucks defenseman Andrew Alberts.

It is a major blow for the Blue Jackets who were expecting a bigger role from Dorsett this season after he set a career high in points a year ago
