Columbus Blue Jackets forward Patrik Laine is expected to miss two-to-four weeks after suffering a triceps strain in practice on Thursday, the team announced.

If the injury takes two weeks to heal, Laine could be back for the final four games of the regular season. If it's any longer, his 2022-23 campaign might be over.

The 24-year-old sniper has tallied 22 goals and 30 assists in 55 games during what's been an injury-riddled season, as he missed time earlier this campaign with elbow and ankle sprains. Laine is in the first season of a four-year, $34.8-million contract signed this past offseason.

The last-place Blue Jackets have been marred by injuries this campaign. Most notably, Zach Werenski suffered a season-ending shoulder ailment in November.
