The Columbus Blue Jackets will be without their captain until playoff time.

Forward Nick Foligno is out two to four weeks with a lower-body injury that he suffered against the St. Louis Blues on Mar. 24. The team announced the injury on Monday morning, before the club departed for western Canada.

In 72 games this season, Foligno has scored 15 goals and posted 18 assists for a total of 33 points. After starting the season slowly, Foligno put up seven points in 10 games during the team's winning streak. 

As a corresponding roster move, the Blue Jackets recalled Alex Broadhurst from the Cleveland Monsters (AHL). Broadhurst has posted 41 points in 66 games for the Monsters.
