Blue Jackets Place Dalton Prout on IR


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The Columbus Blue Jackets placed defenseman Dalton Prout on injured reserve Wednesday retroactive to Dec. 16 because of an upper-body injury that will likely sideline to miss two to three weeks.

The 23-year-old Prout has two assists, 29 penalty minutes and 41 blocked shots in 24 games with Columbus this season. He had a goal, six assists, 25 penalty minutes and a plus-15 rating in 28 games with the Blue Jackets last season, leading the club in plus/minus while ranking second among rookie NHL defensemen in that category.

The 6-foot-3, 222-pounder was Columbus' seventh pick, 154th overall, in the 2010 draft.
