Columbus Blue Jackets put D James Wisniewski on IR; will miss 4-6 weeks with broken foot

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed defenceman James Wisniewski on injured reserve retroactive to Feb. 24 and he is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a broken right foot.

Wisniewski was injured when he was struck by a shot during Sunday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

He had three goals (all on the power play) and six assists in 15 games this season. The 29-year-old had picked up a point in eight of his last nine games prior to being hurt.

Originally acquired in a trade with Montréal on June 29, 2011, Wisniewski has 36 goals and 148 assists in 392 career NHL games with Chicago, Anaheim, the New York Islanders, Montreal and Columbus.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
