Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson posted on his Twitter feed that he believes the left leg injury to right wing Derek Dorsett is "not as serious as first feared." Dorsett injured his leg after his skate appeared to get caught in the ice as he fell during Saturday's game against the Boston Bruins. He was eventually assisted off the ice by two teammates and was unable to put any weight on his left leg. Dorsett has a career-high six goals, two assists and 73 penalty minutes this season.
