Rookie Boone Jenner of the Columbus Blue Jackets, who was listed day-to-day, has now been labeled as week-to-week. He suffered a leg injury during Friday’s win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. It isn’t know as to when he will be expected back.
Update from Todd Richards: Boone Jenner (leg) will not play this weekend, possible that both goalies could start a game, as well. #CBJvsPens

Montreal Canadiens bad boy George Parros will return to the lineup Friday to face the Minnesota Wild. He has been out since his freak-accident in his fight against Colton Orr on October 1. This was his second fight against Orr in the game, and he fell and smacked his face on the ice.
