Columbus Blue Jackets prospects had a solid week on the ice but the big news is Liam Foudy is hurt.
The Columbus Blue Jackets first round pick from this summer’s draft missed a weekend of OHL play as he is dealing with an “upper-body” injury. According to Ryan Pyette of the London Free Press reported that Liam Foudy is out with an upper body injury.
The speedster Foudy was off to a good start with eight points in seven games for the London Knights before the injury. It isn’t expected to cripple the youngsters year though as Foudy is listed as day-to-day.
Elsewhere in the CHL, Trey Fix-Wolansky continues his scoring tear. Another week, the same result. In two games Fix-Wolansky had three goals and two assists for the Edmonton Oil Kings. Trey is now up 23 points in 14 games.
