Blue Jackets place Jack Skille on IR

COLUMBUS, OHIO --- The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed forward Jack Skille on Injured Reserve retroactive to December 31, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today. Skille, 26, suffered an upper body injury on New Year’s Eve during a road game versus the Colorado Avalanche.

Signed by Columbus as a free agent last summer, Skille has scored four goals, including one game-winner, dished out 14 hits and recorded a +2 plus/minus rating in 12 appearances with the Jackets this season. He has also registered 2-1-3 and a +1 rating in six games with the American Hockey League’s Springfield Falcons.

Skille was Chicago’s first pick, seventh overall, at the 2005 NHL Draft. The 6-1, 215-pound winger has recorded 24-29-53 and 77 penalty minutes in 190 NHL career games with the Blue Jackets, Blackhawks and Florida Panthers. In 40 games with Florida in 2012-13, Skille tallied 3-9-12, 11 penalty minutes and 96 hits, which was the second-highest total on the team.
