News: Umberger went to the locker room early in the third period Sunday with what the Blue Jackets are describing as "soreness," the Columbus Dispatch reports. Impact: Well, that's enlightening. Umberger had been a recent healthy scratch and was skating on the fourth line Sunday, so the Jackets likely won't hesitate to just shut him down if the injury (whatever it really is) proves to be at all serious.(RotoWire, )

News: Even with Nathan Horton sidelined, Umberger did not skate on one of the Blue Jackets' four lines during Monday's practice, and he'll likely be a healthy scratch again on Tuesday, the Columbus Dispatch reports. Impact: Jared Boll will play in his first game since November to replace Horton, and Umberger seems firmly lodged in coach Todd Richards' doghouse as the Jackets try to hang on to a playoff spot. Don't expect to get much production out of the veteran forward during your stretch run.(RotoWire, )
