Jared Boll (ankle) to go on next road trip | 03/03/2014 7:25 AM
NewsJared Boll (ankle) has been practicing all week and could go on their next road trip starting Wednesday.
ImpactBoll underwent surgery to repair a torn ankle tendon in December and is ahead of schedule as he was expected to return in late March or early April. He had a goal and 38 penalty minutes in 21 games before he was injured. He is worth picking up in pools that use penalty minutes as a category.

Progress for Jared Boll; skating casually | 02/01/2014 11:37 AM
NewsThings took a considerable tick upward for Columbus forward Jared Bell Friday, when he skated for the first time since surgery to repair a torn ankle tendon in mid-December.
ImpactHe has spent part of his rehab on crutches, part of it in a boot and now he's walking comfortably without the aid of either. It's a small step, he acknowledged, as he skated in a Blue Jackets track suit, stick-and-puck style, before calling it a day. For the first time in two months - easily the longest he's ever had to withhold from hockey activities, he said - Boll was back in his element, if only for a short period of time. Boll said if all continues to go well, he's hopeful for a return sometime in late March or early April.
Jared Boll (ankle) is out up to four months | 12/17/2013 3:09 PM
NewsJared Boll is expected to miss the next three-to-four months with a torn ankle tendon.
Impact"Our initial hope was that Jared would be able to return to the lineup with rest and rehabilitation, but it became apparent over the past few days that surgery was the best course of action," said Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen. "We're disappointed for Jared as he has worked very hard and is an important part of our team, but we expect him to make a full recovery and hopefully return to the lineup later this season." He has a goal and 38 penalty minutes in 21 games in 2013-14. Columbus still has a decent shot of making the playoffs and if they do, then Boll might be healthy in time to be a factor in them, even if he might not return before the end of the regular season.
