COLUMBUS, Ohio - Kristian Huselius has torn a chest muscle, and the Columbus Blue Jackets forward will be sidelined for four to six months.

Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson posted on his Twitter account on Wednesday that Huselius was injured, and said he will have surgery on Thursday morning that will force the left wing to miss the start of the upcoming season.

The 32-year-old Huselius had 14 goals and nine assists last season when he played in only 39 games because of injuries.

The Swede has 190 goals and 261 assists in 660 NHL games with the Blue Jackets, Calgary Flames and Florida Panthers.
