Jared Boll injury: Blue Jackets forward projected to miss 3-4 months

John Grieshop

Boll is expected to miss three-to-four months after undergoing ankle surgery on Monday.

The Columbus Blue Jackets will be without forward Jared Boll for an extended period of time, as the club announced on Tuesday afternoon that the forward will miss three-to-four months while recovering from a torn tendon in his ankle.

Boll was originally placed on injured reserve near the end of November with what the Blue jackets identified as a bruised ankle. Manager Jarmo Kekalainen explained via press release on Tuesday that the team was hopeful that the injury could be healed with rest and rehabilitation.

Unfortunately, that wasn't the case, via the Blue Jackets:

"Our initial hope was that Jared would be able to return to the lineup with rest and rehabilitation, but it became apparent over the past few days that surgery was the best course of action," said Kekalainen. "We're disappointed for Jared as he has worked very hard and is an important part of our team, but we expect him to make a full recovery and hopefully return to the lineup later this season."

Boll's surgery was performed by Dr. Greg Berlet at OhioHealth's Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Center on Monday. He appeared in 21 games this season and contributed one goal while averaging 7:39 per game.
