Columbus, OH (Sports Network) - The Columbus Blue Jackets announced that
second-year forward Dalton Prout will miss the start of training camp
following abdominal surgery.
"We discovered this week that there was actually a small tear and that surgery
would be his best option," Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen said. "The typical
recovery time for an injury like this is six weeks, so our hope is he will be
ready by the start of the regular season."
Prout, who was a sixth-round pick of Chicago in 2010, totaled one goal and six
assists in 28 games for Columbus during the lockout-shortened season.
