The All-Star weekend is almost underway as National Hockey League players are making their way to Tampa Bay for the festivities, but one player will not make it...
The Columbus Blue Jackets have revealed that defenseman Seth Jones will not attend due to a sudden illness. Fortunately for him and the club, his teammate blue liner Zach Werenski has agreed to head to the ASG and will replace him at the last minute.
Jones reportedly felt throughout last night's game against the Arizona Coyotes, and believes he has caught the stomach flu.
Now, the Jackets fans will cheer the young Zach who will surely enjoy the weekend.
