Tough break for Columbus Blue Jackets‘ offseason signing, forward Cody Bass(26), who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury that will require surgery in practice with the team’s AHL affiliate Springfield Falcons.
He was signed to a one-year, two-way deal and skated in 14 NHL games this season before being reassigned. In 10 games with the Falcons, he had a pair of goals and 4 assists.
In 2010/2011 he won the Calder Cup with Binghamton Senators and was always a feisty team leader. It’s the 2nd time an injury has caused him to opt out of a season.
He was originally an Ottawa Senators‘ 4th round pick in the 2005 draft (#95 overall).
