Huselius Signs In Sweden; Done In North America?

News: Kristian Huselius has signed with AIK of the Swedish Elite League, according to NBC Sports.
Analysis: He's been practicing with the team for a month, but just recently reached an agreement with the team. He had been critical of the Blue Jackets this summer, specifically because he felt they rushed him back from injury too soon last season. He has said he wants to finish his career in Sweden so this could be the final nail in his NHL coffin.

Huselius Not Returning To Blue Jackets

News: Kristian Huselius, who apparently blames the Blue Jackets for his injury problems, says he wants to finish his career in Sweden, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: After barely playing the last two seasons it would have been a big question whether Kristian Huselius has anything left in the tank or not, but it doesn't look like Columbus will get a chance to find out.

Jackets' Huselius Not Close To Returning

News: Kristian Huselius' groin tear has been slow to heal, and he may not play again this season, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: "He is idle right now," interim coach Todd Richards said on Monday. "That's doctor's orders. He was given an injection and he was told to lay low. Not a lot has changed with him." This news should surprise absolutely no one, given Kristian Huselius's extensive injury history, and if you still had him stashed on your bench, you can safely cut him loose.

Columbus Places Huselius On IR

News: Kristian Huselius (groin) was placed on IR on Friday, BlueJackets.NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Kristian Huselius remains week-to-week with the injury, so it appears there's not much new with his recovery yet.

Blue Jackets' Huselius Out Several Weeks

News: Kristian Huselius will likely miss 4-to-6 weeks with a torn groin muscle, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: While Kristian Huselius will miss at least a month, he could have been out longer had he suffered a more severe tear. Huselius has had a rough go of it of late - he just returned to the lineup last week after recovering from separate surgeries to repair a hip issue and a torn pectoral muscle. Unfortunately he'll have to spend more time rehabbing instead of playing.

Jackets' Huselius Could Be Out Weeks

News: Kristian Huselius's groin injury is likely to keep him out for "weeks, not days," Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Kristian Huselius has missed 68 of the last 92 possible games due to injury. He has only played two games so far in 2011, and simply doesn't appear to be able to stay on the ice right now, despite 86 points since 2009.

Huselius Leaves Columbus Win Early

News: Kristian Huselius left Tuesday's shootout win over Montreal in the third period with a lower-body injury.
Analysis: Kristian Huselius had played just one game this season and recently returned from a chest injury. Stay tuned.

Blue Jackets' Huselius Ready To Play

News: Kristian Huselius (chest) will return to the ice for Friday's game against the Oilers, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Kristian Huselius is finally ready to play after undergoing two surgical procedures - the first to repair a hip injury, and the second to repair a torn pectoral suffered while rehabbing from the initial surgery. Huselius has been a key player for Columbus in the past - he has scored 142 points in 187 games as a Blue Jacket - but it remains to be seen what his role will be after a lengthy absence.

Jackets About To Get Huselius Back In Lineup

News: There's a chance Kristian Huselius (torn pectoral) could return to the lineup Thursday against his former club the Flames, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: If he doesn't suit up Thursday, Friday in Edmonton or Tuesday in Montreal are also possibilities. Expect coach Scott Arniel to juggle his lines once Kristian Huselius is ready to go, but it's hard to see Huselius bumping Vinnie Prospal off the top unit.

Jackets' Huselius Not Close To A Return

News: After practicing Wednesday and Thursday, Kristian Huselius described the range of motion in his shoulder as "not good", the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He was expected to be out four to six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn pectoral, and it's looking like his return may come on the long end of that timetable. If you have him stored on your bench, you'll have to remain patient.

Blue Jackets' Huselius Skates Wednesday

News: Kristian Huselius (chest) skated with his teammates at Wednesday's practice, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It's not clear where Kristian Huselius is in his recovery, but it appears he is growing closer to making his season debut.

Blue Jackets' Huselius Still A Long Way From Return

News: Kristian Huselius (chest) has done some skating this week but is still at least a month away from a return, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: There are a few good forwards the Blue Jackets have to offer if Kristian Huselius can get healthy and get on the right line, but that's not going to happen for quite some time yet.

Blue Jackets' Huselius Recovering Well

News: Kristian Huselius's surgically repaired pectoral muscle is healing well, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Kristian Huselius visited a team doctor Friday and was cleared to begin flexibility/motion exercises. Though he is making progress, he will still be out a few more months. The Blue Jackets have yet to announce a target date for his return.

Jackets' Huselius Out 4-6 Months With Torn Pectoral

News: Huselius, rehabbing from hip surgery, tore his pectoral muscle while lifting weights and will be out 4-6 months, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He may not return to the Blue Jackets' lineup until 2012. Expect the club to hit the free agent market for a winger who can chip in on the top two lines, and bump Huselius way down on your preseason cheat sheets.

No Buyout Planned For Columbus' Huselius

News: Columbus does not plan to buy out the final year of Huselius' (hip) contract, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Huselius missed 43 games and was not 100 percent in the 39 games he did play due to hip/groin injuries last season. He did have 63-plus points in three of the four seasons prior to this past one, so perhaps he's a good upside play in a late round next season.

Columbus' Huselius May Need Surgery

News: Huselius may need hip/groin surgery during the offseason, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Huselius, who suffered a high ankle sprain Oct. 23, apparently skated so hard during his recovery to regain strength in his ankle that he injured his hip and groin muscles and may need surgery to correct the problem.

Huselius Activated By Columbus

News: Huselius (lower body) has been activated off IR, the Blue Jackets' official site reports,
Analysis: Huselius, who hasn't played since Feb. 18, figures to be available for Sunday's game against the Blues. He checks in with 21 points and a minus-16 rating in 35 games to date.

Jackets' Huselius Inching Closer To Return

News: Huselius (lower body), who's missed seven straight games, could return to practice this week, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Without specific knowledge of what injury he's dealing with it's difficult to establish any timeline for his return, but we should hopefully have a better idea once Huselius is back at practice.

Blue Jackets Place Huselius On IR

News: Huselius (lower body) has been placed on IR retroactive to Feb. 18, Blue Jackets' official site reports.
Analysis: No word yet as to when the Jackets expect him back, but he'll almost certainly be eligible to come back as soon as he's healthy enough to do so.

Huselius Still Not Practicing For Blue Jackets

News: Huselius (lower body injury) didn't participate in Thursday's practice and will likely be out of action longer than expected, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It initially appeared as though Huselius might only miss a game or two. Make sure he's on your bench until we have a better idea when he'll be suiting up again.

Jackets' Huselius Likely Out Tuesday

News: Huselius (lower body) missed his second straight practice Monday and is unlikely to play Tuesday against the Predators, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: His injury is still not believed to be serious, but he'll miss at least one more game. After Tuesday, the Jackets have two days off, which may give him enough time to recover to play Friday against Phoenix.

Columbus' Huselius Day-To-Day

News: Huselius did not practice Sunday because of a lower-body injury, the Columbus Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Huselius' injury is not believed to be serious and he might be able to practice Monday. For his part, coach Scott Arniel considers the left winger day-to-day.

Columbus' Huselius Gets Goal In Loss Wednesday

News: Huselius scored his 12th goal of the season, but Columbus lost to San Jose 3-2 Wednesday night.
Analysis: He's on a little run right now with three goals and two assists in his last three games. If Huselius can stay clear of the injury bug (he's only played 31 games this year) then he can be a solid fantasy contributor in deeper leagues.

Jackets' Huselius Nets Two

News: Huselius scored twice Saturday, one game after being a healthy scratch.
Analysis: He had been mired in quite an offensive slump but the scratch clearly embarrassed the proud winger; those two goals were proof he'll channel his frustration into something positive. Take the chance and get him back in there.

Huselius A Healthy Scratch For Blue Jackets Friday

News: Huselius was a healthy scratch Friday.
Analysis: Rookie Matt Calvert replaced him on the second line and looked good, so we imagine Huselius' stint on the sidelines could last more than one game. He'd had just three points and a minus-7 rating over his last 10 games, so the benching was certainly warranted.
