Leclaire done for season with knee woes

Pascal Leclaire Leclaire

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Pascal Leclaire,
limited to 24 games this season because of injuries, will miss the
rest of the season with knee problems.

Fredrik Norrena has taken over as the starter, with Brian Boucher, recently claimed off waivers from Chicago, as his backup.

Leclaire had surgery Dec. 28 to repair torn cartilage in his
left knee. He re-aggravated the injury last month and was placed on
injured reserve because of stiffness and swelling in the knee. The
team said Thursday that Leclaire won't play again this season.

Leclaire, who entered this season as Columbus' top goaltender,
was 6-15-2 with a 2.97 goals-against average.
