Blue Jackets place defenseman Dalton Prout on injured reserve

COLUMBUS, OHIO -- Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Dalton Prout has been placed on Injured Reserve retroactive to December 16, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today. Prout suffered an upper body injury during Monday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets and is expected to miss two to three weeks.

Prout, 23, has recorded two assists, 29 penalty minutes and 41 blocked shots in 24 games played with Columbus this season. He tallied one goal and six assists for seven points with 25 penalty minutes and a +15 rating in 28 games with the Blue Jackets during the 2012-13 campaign, leading the club in plus/minus while ranking second among rookie NHL defensemen in that category.

A native of Kingsville, Ontario, Prout was Columbus’ seventh pick, 154th overall, in the 2010 NHL Draft. The 6-3, 222-pound defenseman has recorded 1-8-9, 54 PIM and a +9 rating in 57 career NHL games. He has also registered 5-17-22, 127 penalty minutes and a +3 plus/minus rating in 102 career AHL games.
