Blue Jackets Receive Good Patrik Laine News

The Columbus Blue Jackets could be getting a huge boost in their lineup very shortly, as head coach Pascal Vincent said that star winger Patrik Laine could return to the lineup in one of their weekend games.

Laine has been out with a concussion, but now it seems that he is getting closer to returning. This is great news, as the Blue Jackets have been struggling, and Laine is one of their most important and impactful players.

With Laine nearing his return, the Blue Jackets are now hoping that he will give them the boost they need to move up in the standings. It is certainly needed, as the Eastern Conference is quite deep and every point matters.

We will now need to wait and see if Laine ends up returning to the lineup this weekend. If he does, it will also be intriguing to see if he makes a big impact offensively immediately.
