The Columbus Blue Jackets announced starting goalie Sergei Bobrovsky won’t dress for Thursday’s game against the Nashville Predators.
Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen made the announcement Thursday morning.
“There are certain expectations and values that we have established for our players that define our culture,” said Kekalainen. “An incident occurred in which Sergei failed to meet those expectations and values, so we made the decision that he would not be with the team for tonight’s game. This is an internal matter and we will have no further comment at this time.”
Bobrovsky was pulled from Tuesday’s 4-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the third period.
