Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen has announced that defenseman JT.
Moore will miss at least three months with a lower-body injury, according to a source.
Miller had a lower body injury during the preseason, and Kekanainen told reporters that it was a lower right-leg injury.
The team said that Miller had been cleared for the start of the season, but that he’s been limited to two games with the Blue Jackets this season.
Miller was a fourth-round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft.
Kekaainen said that the team will “absolutely” be able to find an alternative replacement for Moore, and that it will take some time to get Moore back on the ice.
“JT has had a few setbacks, but he’s got a long road ahead of him, so he’s obviously a big part of our team,” Kekasen said.
“He’s had a good training camp.
But he has a lot of physical and mental hurdles.
“We’ll have a look at it and see what we can do to address it. “
We’ll continue to do what we do, and it’s up to our trainers to find the right solution. “
We’ll have a look at it and see what we can do to address it.
The Blue Jackets have struggled to score goals this season and have gone 5-9-2 in the last 10 games. “
And that’s the way it should be.”

Keksen said Miller’s absence will be a factor.
“When you have a guy who is a top-pairing defenseman, and when he’s a top guy, it really hurts us offensively,” Keks said.
Miller has two goals and four points in six games this season, including a goal and an assist during a 4-3 win against the Minnesota Wild on Sunday.
“That’s been a real tough stretch for him,” Kaksen said of Miller.
But at the same time, he’s just got to take the positives out of it and learn from it.””
The way we play the game is not the way he wants it to be.
But at the same time, he’s just got to take the positives out of it and learn from it.”
