    Blue Jackets Tell Sergei Bobrovsky to Stay Away After ‘Incident’ in Tampa Bay

    Citing an “incident” that “failed to meet expectations and values” of the organization, the Blue Jackets on Thursday told Bobrovsky to stay away from the club while it prepared to play Nashville in Nationwide Arena.

    A meeting is planned before the Blue Jackets practice Friday, general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. If the meeting goes well, Bobrovsky could be on the ice for practice and with the team when they travel to play Washington on Saturday.

    If not …

    “I’m not going to speculate on any of that until we resolve the issue,” Kekalainen told The Athletic. “We’ll meet before the practice (Friday) and deal with it.

    “There are certain values and expectations we have for the players, no matter who it is. If you don’t live up to them, there are going to be consequences.”

    Sources told The Athletic that the incident happened sometime between the latter stages of Tuesday’s 4-0 loss in Tampa Bay and before the team flew home from Tampa International Airport an hour or so after the game.

    Apparently he didn't come back to the bench after he was pulled from the game prior. They mentioned this during the Ranger game.

    Yeah, it's mentioned in The Athletic article, too:

    Bobrovsky was pulled from Tuesday’s game after allowing the fourth goal at 8:53 of the third period, the second time in three starts and the fourth time this season that he’s been pulled.

    Rather than stay on the bench with his teammates — as Bobrovsky has typically done after being pulled — he went directly to the dressing room. He was not seen in the bench area for the rest of the game.

    OH! The infamous, anonymous " they ". Most reports stated that Tortorella had zilch to do with it.

    It was in one of the stories I read on this. I read a bunch to try to find out more details, but couldn't find anything.
