Blue Jackets' Letestu out 2-4 weeks with groin injury @NHL

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Mark Letestu will miss 2-4 weeks with a groin injury, the team announced Wednesday.

Letestu has three goals and five points in nine games this season. He played in all 82 regular-season games for the Blue Jackets last season and scored a career-high 34 points.

The Blue Jackets also lost defenseman James Wisniewski and forward Artem Anisimov in their 5-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday. Wisniewski broke a finger and will miss 1-2 weeks, and Anisimov's status was not immediately known after he left the game in the second period with an upper-body injury.

The Blue Jackets placed goalie Sergei Bobrovsky on injured reserve earlier Tuesday with a broken finger and are also without forwards Nathan Horton, Boone Jenner, Brandon Dubinsky, Matt Calvert and Nick Foligno.
