Blue Jackets Activate James Wisniewski Off of Injured Reserve
The Columbus Blue Jackets today announced that defenseman James Wisniewski has been activated off of Injured Reserve. Wisniewski missed 14 games while he recovered from a broken foot suffered on Feb. 24 during a road game vs. Chicago. Columbus has also placed forward Brandon Dubinsky on IR retroactive to March 22. Dubinsky has missed the last three games with a lower body injury.

Wisniewski has recorded three goals and six assists for nine points with two penalty minutes in 15 appearances this season. The 6-0, 208-pound blueliner led the Blue Jackets with three power play goals and ranked fifth on the club in points at the time of his injury. Originally acquired by Columbus in a trade with Montréal on June 29, 2011, Wisniewski has tallied 36-148-184 in 392 career NHL games with the Blackhawks, Ducks, Islanders, Canadiens and Blue Jackets. The 29-year-old native of Canton, Michigan appeared in 48 games and tallied 6-21-27 while leading the Blue Jackets in Time On Ice (24:47/game) in 2011-12, his first season in Columbus.

Dubinsky, 26, has recorded 1-8-9 in 19 appearances with Columbus this season. The 6-1, 210-pound native of Anchorage, Alaska also missed 11 games between Feb. 18 and Mar. 10 with a knee injury. Acquired by the Blue Jackets in a trade with the Rangers last summer, Dubinsky has appeared in 412 career NHL games with New York and Columbus, tallying 82-140-222.
