COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets placed defenceman Rostislav Klesla on injured reserve Wednesday.

Klesla injured his wrist in last Friday's 6-1 win at Buffalo and is expected to be sidelined at least one week.

Klesla has one goal and two assists with eight penalty minutes in 11 games with the Blue Jackets this season.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
