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.
