Jackets' Leclaire has arthroscopic knee surgery
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Blue Jackets goalie Pascal Leclaire had arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday and is expected to be sidelined for about six weeks.
Leclaire sustained a hamstring injury Friday night against Vancouver after missing the previous five games with a sprained knee. The team placed Leclaire on injured reserve Tuesday and recalled goalie Ty Conklin from Syracuse of the AHL.
Leclaire is 6-12-2 with a 2.97 goals-against average in 21 games this season.
