Horrible News For Blue Jackets Boone Jenner After Taking Puck To Face During Game

Columbus Blue Jackets captain Boone Jenner experienced a concerning incident during Friday's game against the St. Louis Blues.

In a scary moment, Jenner was struck in the face by a puck, an unfortunate event that led to his immediate exit from the game.

It has now been confirmed that Jenner suffered a fractured jaw and will miss the next six weeks.

He has been placed on injured reserve.

This incident occurred during the second period when a high shot from Blue Jackets’ defenseman Ivan Provorov unintentionally hit Jenner in the mouth.

Following the impact, Jenner was seen grasping his face in pain and promptly headed to the locker room for medical attention.

Despite this setback, the Blue Jackets managed to secure a 5-2 victory over the Blues, ending a three-game losing streak.

As of December 8, Boone Jenner was the leading scorer for the Blue Jackets, with an impressive tally of 13 goals in 29 games during the 2023-24 regular season.

Following the game, Blue Jackets head coach Pascal Vincent didn't have much of an update on Jenner's status, but insider Jeff Svoboda said it's "more likely to be bad than good," and that has now been confirmed.

Throughout his 11-season NHL career with the Blue Jackets, Jenner has accumulated a commendable 347 points, including 183 goals and 164 assists in 686 career games.
