Blue Jackets' Marian Gaborik suffered a broken collarbone Saturday night against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Gaborik sustained the injury in the first period, when a hard hit by the Flyers' Zac Rinaldo sandwiched him against Braydon Coburn. Gaborik had just returned from a knee injury suffered weeks earlier, and had played in just 12 games so far while racking up five goals and seven assists for 12 points.

The speedy right wing had been out since mid-November, but it seems as if the Blue Jackets have now lost him again indefinitely; there's no timetable for Gaborik's recovery. Gaborik's injury is also a loss for Slovakia, as he was slated to play for his home country at the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi.
