Clarkson will miss four to six weeks with a torn oblique muscle suffered Tuesday night against the Washington Capitals. The injured-ravaged Blue Jackets have totaled 406 man-games lost to injury with 19 games remaining. Last season's total was 292.

The 30-year-old Clarkson was acquired Feb. 26 from Toronto for injured right wing Nathan Horton. He was scoreless in three games.

The Blue Jackets acquired Clarkson from the Maple Leafs on Thursday in exchange for right winger Nathan Horton.

Clarkson has been a major disappointment in two seasons with Toronto since signing a free-agent deal with a salary cap hit of $5.25 million through 2018-19. The 30-year-old Clarkson has 10 goals and five assists in 58 games this season. He has 112 goals and 84 assists in 544 NHL games with the Maple Leafs and New Jersey.
