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

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
