  • November 19, 2023

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Patrik Laine will be a healthy scratch Sunday against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Laine has only one goal and is a minus-4 in five games since returning from an upper-body injury.

The 25-year-old from Tampere, Finland, has recorded two goals and one assist in nine games total this season.

Columbus (4-10-4) is last in the Eastern Conference with 12 points and mired in an eight-game losing streak.

Laine was drafted second overall by the Winnipeg Jets in 2016 and was traded to the Blue Jackets in a blockbuster trade in January 2021.

He has 382 points (200 goals and 182 assists) in 471 games over eight seasons with the Jets and Blue Jackets.
