CURTIS MCELHINNEY RUMORS

It's McElhinney's net as Forsberg awaits his chance

In a season with a seemingly never-ending succession of injuries, goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky was placed on Injured Reserve retroactive to January 21. The Blue Jackets now have their backup goalie as the number one and the goalie of the future, playing with the AHL Springfield Falcons, as his backup. Savvy? Curtis McElhinney, 5-7-1 in 17 games played this season, has a .906 save...

Blue Jackets backup goalie McElhinney regaining confidence

It would be easy to explain away the Blue Jackets lack of victories earlier in the season, including the dismal month of November, on the backup goaltender, as fans are wont to do. But that would belie the fact that Curtis McElhinney was playing injured. On October 18 in Ottawa, Nick Foligno slid into McElhinney, resulting in Curtis having a concussion. One week later, he had flown...

Blue Jackets’ Curtis McElhinney Robs Torey Krug With Nice Glove Save (Video)

The Boston Bruins lost to the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-2 on Saturday, and it might have had a little something to do with a sweet save by Columbus goaltender Curtis McElhinney. Midway through the first period, McElhinney robbed Bruins defensemen Torey Krug of a goal with a nice glove save. It kept the score tied at one goal apiece and likely gave the Blue...

Predators 2, Blue Jackets 1

Notes: Props to Columbus goalie Curtis McElhinney, who stopped 40 of 42 shots and bailed the Blue Jackets out on several occasions. The Preds controlled the majority of the game, firing off 20 shots on goal in the first period alone. Columbus was able to sink their lone goal seconds after the end of a 5-on-3 as Taylor Beck was returning to the ice, but the Preds were able to wrangle...

Blue Jackets backup netminder suddenly thrust into the spotlight

Columbus backup goalie Curtis McElhinney had an idea what was coming. Flash back to the Blue Jackets huge win over the visiting Detroit Red Wings Tuesday. There was a question as to whether Sergei Bobrvosky was going to start the game, because he started feeling ill the night before. As it turned out, Bob did make his 19th straight start. But he wasn't able to finish, which wasn...
