The Columbus Blue Jackets suffered a 7-4 loss to the Anaheim Ducks Sunday and lost the services of center Jeff Carter along the way as well.
BlueJacketsXtra.com reports that Carter separated his shoulder in the first shift of the third period "when he was blindsided by Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin."
The 27-year-old alternate captain who joined Columbus this offseason through a trade with the Philadelphia Flyers has been a bit of a disappointment in Ohio. He has scored 10 goals and put up seven assists this season. He had 36 goals and 30 assists for the Flyers last season.
"We'll see where he's at and we'll get more detail tomorrow," Blue Jackets coach Scott Arniel said, according to the site. The team is taking a short flight Monday to take on the Chicago Blackhawks Tuesday.
