Team spokesman Todd Sharrock confirmed on Friday that Anisimov is flying home to Columbus along with assistant athletic trainer Nates Goto.
"He will see our team doctors at some point but I don't know if that will be today," Sharrock said.
Anisimov was taken off the ice on a stretcher after being struck in the head by Red Wings defenceman Kyle Quincey. Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said after his team's 3-2 win that Anisimov was alert and stable at the hospital.
It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
