Right winger Derek Dorsett suffered a fractured clavicle at 1:36 of the first period, when he was driven into the net by Vancouver's Andrew Alberts.

The club announced after the game that he's likely to miss the rest of the season. It's a big blow for the Blue Jackets. Dorsett has three goals and six assists 24 games. Last season, he had 12 goals and 20 points -- both career highs.

#CBJ coach Scott Arniel on RW Derek Dorsett: "It doesn't look good right now, but we'll see what the diagnosis is (on Sunday)."

Dorsett took a nasty spill and landed really awkwardly on his ankle (http://twitpic.com/7rmgmn). It doesn't sound like the alternate captain will play any time soon.
