The severity of Jones' injury is not known at this time, but the fact that the Jackets do not yet have a timeline for his return would suggest that the injury is more of the week-to-week variety than day-to-day.



Foudy, a left winger is expected to make his NHL debut on Monday evening, a little over a month after winning WJC gold with Team Canada in January. For more on the Foudy story, please click here.

In addition to Foudy's call up, the Jackets have also announced that they have called up defenseman Gabriel Carlsson from the AHL Cleveland Monsters. Calrsson has suited up with the big club on six occasions this season, failing to register a point. He does, however, have 11 points in 39 games with the Monsters this season in the AHL.



This is an enormous loss for a Jackets club with just 26 games remaining and fighting fist, tooth and nail for a playoff spot. As if it wasn't bad enough that the team is already without the likes of Alexander Wennberg, Ryan Murray, Joonas Korpisalo, Josh Anderson, Alexandre Texier, Brandon Dubinsky and Dean Kukan.

With the race as tight as it is in the Eastern Conference, the injury to Jones could not have come at a worse time for the Blue Jackets. However, if there's one thing that this team has taught us this season, it's that they cannot and should not be counted out. Ever.
