Columbus Blue Jackets right wing Jack Skille will undergo shoulder surgery and miss the remainder of the season, the team announced on Wednesday. 

The surgery will take place next week and the Blue Jackets have already placed Skille on injured reserve. 

Skille is a former No. 7 draft pick of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2005. He has played eight years in the NHL, also spending time with the Florida Panthers.

In 45 games this season, Skille had six goals and two assists and averaged 12:31 of ice time. In his career, he has 30 goals and 31 assists.

Columbus claimed Skille off waivers from the New York Islanders in October.

The Blue Jackets (26-29-4) are currently in seventh place in the Metropolitan Division and host the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday.
