Blue Jackets Injury Update: Cam Atkinson to Return to Lineup Tuesday

By on 10/28/2014 06:40:00 PM

The Columbus Blue Jackets will welcome back one of their wingers tonight as Cam Atkinson has been cleared to play. Only five days earlier, Atkinson suffered what could have been a potentially life changing eye injury. 

Earlier today, Cam Atkinson was fully cleared to play tonight against the Ottawa Senators. According to  Atkinson is quoted as saying this about his eye, “It’s ready to go. I can see, my peripherals are there and I’m going to play.” The stitches that closed the three inch cut across his right eyelid were able to prevent serious injury for Atkinson and get him back on the ice in less than a week. In seven games this season, Cam Atkinson is tied for 4th for total team points with three goals and two assists. 

The Blue Jackets welcome Atkinson back into the lineup as they look to break their two game losing streak.
