BLUE JACKETS-BOBROVSKY OUT

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 21 and said the former Vezina Trophy winner will be out the next four to six weeks with a groin injury.

The club also recalled forward Josh Anderson and added goaltender Anton Forsberg to the roster on emergency recall from its American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Bobrovsky was selected to play in his first NHL All-Star game prior to the injury. He has a 16-15-2 record with a 2.85 goals-against average, .913 save percentage and one shutout in 33 games this season.

Anderson has not recorded a point in four games this season. Forsberg, who has appeared in two games for Columbus this season, will back up Curtis McElhinney.

REDS-MESORACO

CINCINNATI (AP) -- All-Star catcher Devin Mesoraco has agreed to a $28 million, four-year contract with Cincinnati, leaving the Reds with two players in salary arbitration.

He gets a $500,000 signing bonus under Monday's deal and salaries of $2.4 million this year, $4.9 million in 2016, $7.2 million in 2017 and $13 million in 2018. The salary in the final year can escalate to $15 million.

Mesoraco made $525,000 last season, when he took over as the starter and led all major league catchers in homers (25) and RBIs (80) while batting .273. His 24 homers while catching were the most by a Reds player since Johnny Bench din 1977.

Mesoraco had asked for $3.6 million in arbitration and the club had offered $2.45 million.

Third baseman Todd Frazier and closer Aroldis Chapman -- also All-Stars last season -- remain in arbitration. Frazier is seeking $5.7 million and Chapman has asked for $8.7 million. The Reds haven't had a player go to a hearing since 2004.

SUPER BOWL

PHOENIX (AP) -- The annual Tuesday morning madness at the Super Bowl is being held today at the U.S. Airways Center, the home of the NBA Suns. The AFC Champion Patriots are first up at 10:30 a.m. local time with the Seahawks of the NFC following at 11:30 a.m.

In years past, this event was always held at the playing site of the Super Bowl but now it's being held indoors with seats being sold to paying customers.

This is the event when the players from the two combatants are peppered with questions from the media, including reporters from the non-conventional sports media. Following this session the teams are made available to the media early Wednesday and Thursday, normally at each team's hotel.

It's a good bet each team will be hit with questions about deflated footballs and it will be interesting just how they handle them.

The NFC Champion Seahawks are conducting their practices at Arizona State University while the Patriots are at the Arizona Cardinals facility.

The big game takes place this Sunday night.
