Blue Jackets' Wisniewski to miss about a week
Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman James Wisniewski will miss at least the next two games with an upper-body injury, the Columbus Dispatch reported Saturday.

Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman James Wisniewski will be sidelined for about a week with an upper-body injury, coach Todd Richards told reporters Sunday. According to the Columbus Dispatch, David Savard will take his place in the lineup.

Wisniewski leads Columbus defensemen with 18 points (16 assists).

Richards said forward Matt Calvert (upper body), who was injured in a 4-0 win Friday against the Minnesota Wild, and forward Brandon Dubinsky, whose wife gave birth to their son Brady Charles last week, each practiced Sunday and will play against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday.

Forward Jared Boll (foot) sustained a setback in his recovery and will remain sidelined.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
