Fedor Tyutin D CLS 3 Months

Tyutin was diagnosed with a left knee sprain and will miss four-to-six weeks, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports. The Blue Jackets have placed him on injured reserve.

The injury occurred in Friday's win over the Flyers, when Tyutin took the brunt of a collision with Philadelphia forward Jakub Voracek. The Blue Jackets immediately addressed Tyutin's absence by acquiring Jordan Leopold from the Blues for a future draft pick. Leopold figures to slot in on the third pairing Saturday against the Sharks, assuming the bulk of Tyutin's minutes load.

Fedor Tyutin had a goal and an assist in the Blue Jackets' 4-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6.

The Blue Jackets may get defenseman Fedor Tyutin back in the lineup on Saturday.

He missed the last two games after taking a hard hit on the first shift of Game 2 in the opening-round playoff series by Pittsburgh's Joe Vitale. "He had a full practice (Friday), and that's a good sign," Columbus coach Todd Richards said, although he wanted to discuss Tyutin's condition with the medical staff before making a decision. Tyutin, who said he wants to play, was asked if he knew where he was in the aftermath of Vitale's hit. "Yeah," he deadpanned. "Pittsburgh."
