Zach Werenski withstood a big hit on Friday.
The Blue Jackets were waiting for this as he underwent off-season shoulder surgery, but the hit occurred after a goal as Jordan Martinook smacked him after starting to raise his hands after his goal. "Yeah," coach John Tortorella said. "He got banged there, not so much on the shoulders or anything like that, but he got rattled around a little bit unexpectedly, because it was right after the goal. Those are things that you kind of … if I can say it, that you hope happen — but he’s able to get through it — because then it’ll cure him mentally. That’s the last thing that has to go, is just his comfort mentally. That’s always the big hurdle." That is good news for Werenski who had 47 points as a rookie two seasons ago. He could do better this campaign. Oct 8 - 7:53 AM
