The already injury-riddled Blue Jackets lost another key player, Brandon Dubinsky, to an upper-body injury in Thursday's loss to the Canadiens

Less than three minutes into the first period, Dubinsky scored against Montreal but flipped awkwardly over defenseman Tom Gilbert, who slid in to try and prevent the goal. 

Dubinsky left the game, and it was later announced that he would not return to the ice. There was no update on the 28-year-old's status after the game.

Watch: Dubinsky spurs Crosby into rare fight

Montreal won 5-2, improving to 40-16-5. Columbus fell to 26-30-4.
