COLUMBUS, OHIO—Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will miss Thursday night’s game because of an unspecified team “incident.”

General manager Jarmo Kekalainen says in a statement that “there are certain expectations and values that we have established for our players that define our culture. An incident occurred in which Sergei failed to meet those expectations and values.”

The team made the announcement several hours before the Blue Jackets were set to play host to the Nashville Predators. Backup Joonas Korpisalo is in line to start.

The 30-year-old Bobrovsky is 18-13-1 in the final year of his contract and so far has declined to sign a long-term extension.
