The Columbus Blue Jackets will be without defenseman Seth Jones for three weeks after he suffered a hairline fracture in his foot during Saturday's game at St. Louis, general manager Jarmo Kekalainen has announced.

The details of the injury are not for the faint of heart.

Berglund's skate blade cut through Jones' skate - the laces and tongue - and cut his foot, fractured a bone. #CBJ #StLBlues

Jones did not remove his skate for fear of his foot swelling so bad he couldn't put it back in. #hockeyplayers #CBJ

By end of game, #CBJ Jones said there was blood seeping through his laces.

Jones, 22, has been solid for the Blue Jackets so far this season, recording three goals, three assists, and 15 shots through 10 games while leading the team in ice time (17th in NHL).

The injury comes with the Blue Jackets having posted a winning record of 5-3-2, and sitting one point back of a wild-card spot with the fewest games played league-wide.

Based on the three-week timeline, Jones is likely to miss the next ten games.
