Blue Jackets place D Martinek on IR

The Columbus Blue Jackets placed defenseman 2 loss to Detroit.

Martinek, who signed a one-year contract with Columbus in July, was expected to miss at least a week. The team did not say what the injury was, although it was reported to be a concussion.

To fill his spot, the Blue Jackets added defenseman John Moore to the roster on an emergency recall from AHL Springfield.

Martinek played his first nine NHL seasons with the New York Islanders and has one goal and a minus-three rating in seven games with Columbus.
