The Blue Jackets have activated Joonas Koprisalo from IR and recalled him from Cleveland (AHL).

Korpisalo has been out since December 29th but comes back up after a one-game conditioning stint. Korpisalo, who was red-hot before he got hurt, stopped 32 of 34 shots in a winning effort in his game with Cleveland. Elvis Merzlikins has had a more difficult time recently, so Korpisalo should get a decent workload upon his return.

Korpisalo is expected to miss "weeks" with a knee injury.

Korpisalo has been among the best goalies in the NHL since mid-November, ranking first in the NHL in wins (11), tied for second in shutouts (2), tied for sixth in GAA (2.04) and tied for 10th in SV% (.926) over that span. Korpisalo suffered a knee injury during the shootout vs. Chicago last night and now the Blue Jackets turn to an inexperienced duo of Elvis Merzlikins and Matiss Kivlenieks.

Korpisalo left Sunday's game with a lower-body injury.

Korpisalo was hurt in the first round of the shootout during the Blue Jackets' loss to the Blackhawks on Sunday. He showed some discomfort after Jonathan Toews scored on him and it got progressively worse, ending in Korpisalo being wheeled into the dressing room on a gurney. Korpisalo is set to undergo an MRI and further evaluation before the Blue Jackets release a detailed timetable.

Korpisalo will start Thursday vs. the Kings.

Korpisalo gave up three goals on 21 shots in the Blue Jackets' win in Detroit on Tuesday.

Korpisalo will start Tuesday in Detroit.

Korpisalo stopped all 30 shots that he faced in the Blue Jackets' shutout win over the Capitals last night. With Elvis Merzlikins struggling and a very winnable game on-tap, Korpisalo will start on back-to-back nights. He allowed four goals on 26 shots in a win in his first start vs. the Red Wings and is 2-0-2 with a 1.34 GAA and .958 SV% in his last four starts.

Korpisalo allowed two goals on 19 shots after replacing Elvis Merzlikins in the Blue Jackets' overtime loss in Ottawa on Saturday. Korpisalo's last three outings have all been strong, as he's posted a .944 SV% but has lost two of three. The win came against the Capitals, who he'll face again tonight--last Monday he stopped 37 of 39 in a 5-2 victory.

Korpisalo will start Monday in Washington.

Korpisalo allowed three goals on 19 shots in the Blue Jackets' loss to the Rangers last Thursday. Since his four-game winning streak was snapped, Korpisalo has lost three of his last four games while posting a 2.80 GAA and .889 SV%. Things could get worse on Monday. The Capitals have won six in a row while scoring 4.00 goals per game, so Korpisalo is a low-end option to start the week.
