Calvert is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Calvert has reportedly been playing with a concussion that the Blue Jackets originally thought was a neck injury. He had been getting treatment for the injury, but last night Calvert said “felt different.” The doctors then went through concussion protocol and he was diagnosed with a concussion. His injury opens a spot for David Clarkson to slide right in on Saturday.

Calvert (illness) returned to Blue Jackets practice on Wednesday.

Calvert missed the last two games with an illness, but his return to practice this afternoon is a good sign that he will be available on Friday vs. St. Louis. The Blue Jackets went with seven defensemen last night, so Calvert’s return would certainly help the offence.

Calvert has missed the last four games with an upper-body injury his suffered on October 24th. Columbus has been working with a ton of injuries, but it looks like they could get both Calvert and Boone Jenner back on Tuesday. Calvert registered two points (1G / 1A) in the first seven games.

Calvert (abdomen) will play tonight.

Calvert will play for the first time since October 10 after undergoing surgery on his abdomen. With Brandon Dubinsky and Marian Gaborik out, this is a small bright spot for the Blue Jackets. Calvert is an undersized pass-first forward who will play on the third line if Derek MacKenzie can't play, if he does Calvert suits up on the fourth line tonight.

Calvert (abdomen) is skating in a regular jersey at Blue Jackets practice.

Calvert has been sidelined since October 12 after having surgery to repair an abdominal tear. Skating in a regular sweater indicates that he is nearing a return. Monitor his status prior to Tuesday's contest vs. Washington. Calvert is an under-sized winger who has yet to make a splash in the NHL. He has 20 goals and 19 assists (39 points) in 100 career NHL games.
