The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed goaltender Elvis Merzlikins on injured reserve.
Merzlikins suffered an upper body injury on Feb. 20 against Nashville. The team says he is considered week-to-week.
This season, Merzlikins has posted a 3-3-1 record with 2.81 goals-against average.
With Merzlikins out, The Blue Jackets have recalled goaltender Matiss Kivlenieks to the roster from the club’s taxi squad.
