From Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch:
Nikita Filatov will not take part in the Traverse City prospects tournament because of a leg injury. The Blue Jackets say he will miss 10 to 14 days, meaning he’ll likely be out for the start of veteran camp on Sept. 20, too.
“Nikita has an old injury that is bothering him, so he will not accompany our rookie team to Traverse City for the NHL Prospects Tournament,” GM Scott Howson said, in a statement released by the club. “He’ll rehab the injury here and be re-evaluated in the next 10 days to two weeks.”

We wait all this time for Filatov to come overseas and he gets hurt! I am sure the Jackets are just hoping that Filatov will be able to participate in a substantial amount of training camp.
