Bjorkstrand scored twice before leaving that game, and he leads the team with 12 goals on the season. He joined a long list of Blue Jackets who were already injured, as their injury report consisted of nine players for Saturday's game. Bjorkstrand was officially placed on injured reserve, which allowed the team to call up left winger Nathan Gerbe from their AHL affiliate.
The Blue Jackets have won four consecutive games to give them 16 wins and 38 points, pulling them within seven points of the final Eastern Conference playoff spot, which is currently held by the Philadelphia Flyers. They will be back on the ice Monday night on the road against the New York Islanders.
