COLUMBUS, Ohio -- In his first game back after missing 17 games with a sprained left knee, Columbus Blue Jackets right wing Marian Gaborik has sustained a broken collarbone.
Gaborik was injured when sandwiched between Philadelphia Flyers Braydon Coburn and Zac Rinaldo while taking a shot midway through the first period of their game on Saturday night.
Gaborik's shot went just wide, where teammate Nick Foligno collected it and fed Ryan Johansen for the game's first goal.
The 31-year-old, who has 341 goals and 345 assists in 787 career NHL games, immediately skated off the ice and went to the dressing room.
The team said he would be sidelined indefinitely.

Shortly before their game at the Columbus Blue Jackets, general manager Paul Holmgren announced Lecavalier, who had missed the last nine games with a non-displaced fracture in his back, would play.
Lecavalier has nine goals and five assists in 22 games and leads the team in power-play goals with five.
The club also announced that defenceman Nicklaus Grossman, leading the team with 92 blocked shots, would miss the game with the flu and that right wing Steve Downie, who has two goals and 10 assists in 20 games, would be out seven to 10 days with an upper-body injury.
Jones takes puck to face
NASHVILLE -- Nashville Predators defenceman Seth Jones was hit in the face by a puck in the first period Saturday night against the Montreal Canadiens, and the team said he would not return to the game.
With eight seconds remaining in the period, Jones was standing to the left of the Nashville net. A slap shot from the left point by Montreal defenceman Andrei Markov deflected off of traffic in front and struck Jones on the left side of his face.
Jones, who wears a protective visor, dropped to the ice immediately and was tended to by medical personnel before skating off the ice under his own power.
