In the second game of the Columbus Blue Jackets season, against the Kraken, Max Domi sustained three rib fractures. Since the star scoring forward left, the team has a record of 2-2-0, with equal wins and losses. The desire that this twenty-six-year-old has to play hockey, and for the Blue Jackets is a valuable asset, which fans alike can’t wait to see return to the ice.
His return timing couldn’t be better as the team goes on the road to the New York Rangers, tomorrow evening at MSG. A hard atmosphere to play in to begin with, the Rangers are a division game, and critical to win for advancement in the standings. Currently, the Blue Jackets are 5th with a 6 point total and record of 4-2-0. The Rangers, on the other hand, are currently 3rd with 9 points and a 4-2-1 record.
Currently, in his 2 games played, the second in which he suffered that injury, he’s racked up a total of 4 points. This consists of a single goal and 3 assists. It is also worth reminding fans alike that the Rangers have a great asset, in a former Blue Jackets, as well: Artemi Panarin. He also has a single goal and three assists in his 2021-22 NHL season. It will be fun to watch both of these teams come together and play, for the first time in well over a year. However, now that Domi has returned, it will be all the better of a game, no doubt. Puck drop is tomorrow evening at 7:00 PM.
Also, in addition to Max Domi’s return, the team also announced that Justin Danforth has returned to the Cleveland Monsters. (The American Hockey League affiliate of the Columbus Blue Jackets.)
