A.J. Messier/NHLI via Getty Images(COLUMBUS, Ohio) -- Columbus Blue Jackets center Brandon Dubinsky is expected to miss six weeks after having surgery Wednesday to repair an abdominal injury.“It’s a big blow, but again, I feel good about this group,” Blue Jackets head coach Todd Richards said.“I’d like to have Brandon in the lineup, but everyone deals with injuries at different parts of the season, and we just have to deal with it now. Other players are going to get great opportunities, because Brandon is a guy that plays an important role and logs a lot of ice time, penalty kill, power play, 5-on-5 and key situations. It’s just more opportunities now for other players.”Dubinsky, who scored 16 goals and dished out 34 assists last season, was injured during practice Monday. He was first listed as day-to-day, but the team's medical staff determined surgery was the best option.Dubinsky joins a lengthy list of injured Blue Jackets that includes Nathan Horton (back), Ryan Murray (knee) and Boone Jenner (hand).

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Boston Bruins re-signed defenseman Torey Krug and forward Reilly Smith Monday.The two players each received one-year contracts worth an annual cap figure of $1.4 million.The signings mark the end of a long negotiation between the players and the B's."It was definitely tough," Smith said of the contract talks. "At times, you think you're fighting a three-way battle. You've got your own ideas, your agent is advising how he probably should and they've been in the business a long time and that's probably the advice you should take. The Bruins also have their ideas and ideologies of how they want the whole situation to go, so you're kind of bouncing ideas with everyone. Me and Torey were bouncing ideas off each other the whole time, because we just wanted to get to camp. It seems like it all worked out."The re-signing of Krug and Smith is huge for a Boston team that finished last season with the most points in the NHL.Krug, 23, played in 79 games last season recording 14 goals and 26 assists. As for the 23-year-old Smith, he played in 82 games last season, scoring 23 goals and handing out 31 assists, mainly playing on the second line with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.
