Columbus Blue Jackets winger Jakub Voracek is dealing with a concussion, general manager Jarmo Kekalainen confirmed on Friday. The team has so far labeled Voracek's injury as an upper-body problem, but Kekalainen decided to give some clarity on the issue Friday. He added that the Blue Jackets don't expect the veteran winger to be available in the near future. Voracek last played at the beginning of November. He posted six points in 11 games at the start of the season before getting sidelined. Youngsters Kent Johnson and Yegor Chinakhov have been playing bigger roles with Voracek out.
