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.

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
