The Blue Jackets announced Monday that they placed forward Jack Roslovic on injured reserve with a fractured ankle that will sideline him for four-to-six weeks and recalled defenseman David Jiricek from the AHL.
In 14 games this season, Roslovic has posted 2-6--8. The 26-year-old is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.
Jiricek has played in 10 NHL games this season, which burned the first year of his entry-level contract, and has recorded 1-2--3. He's also played in one AHL game. The 19-year-old defenseman was the sixth overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.
The 4-7-4 Blue Jackets return to the ice on Tuesday to face the Pittsburgh Penguins at Nationwide Arena at 7 p.m. ET on Bally Sports Ohio.
