5. Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets, currently in the middle of one of the most heated Eastern Conference playoff pushes in the past few years, suffered a huge blow to their offence when it was announced that Nathan Horton will miss Wednesday’s game with Colorado and possibly beyond due to a lower body injury. He only played 34 games so far this season, picking up just 17 points. However, the Blue Jackets need all hands on deck for the final couple weeks of the regular season. Young defender Ryan Murray is also out for at least the next four weeks, which also hurts them.
Current Injuries: Nathan Horton, Ryan Murray, Jack Skille
