News: The Blue Jackets placed James Wisniewski (finger) on injured reserve Thursday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Post-Dispatch reports.

News: David Booth (foot) skated Thursday morning, TSN's Mark Masters reports. Analysis: David Booth did not take part in practice Thursday, but he was spotted on the ice for the first time since breaking his foot during the preseason. He will still need a few weeks to get into playing shape, so don't expect to see him suit up for Toronto until mid-to-late November.
News: Jhonas Enroth will start Thursday's game against the Bruins.

News: Mike Cammalleri (neck) is unlikely to play in Thursday's game against the Jets, The Star-Ledger reports. Analysis: Mike Cammalleri did not take part in the Devils' morning skate, so it seems likely he will sit out again Thursday night. Cammalleri is reportedly dealing with only soreness and not a more serious injury, so it's possible he could return for the Devils' next game Saturday.
News: The Penguins recalled Jayson Megna from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday. Analysis: Jayson Megna, who appeared in 36 games with the Penguins last season, recorded two goals and an assist in nine games with WBS during the current campaign. He will be the 13th forward on the roster, so it remains to be seen if he will enter the lineup or serve primarily as the extra forward.

News: Craig Anderson will start Thursday's game against the Blackhawks, TSN's Steve Lloyd reports. Analysis: Craig Anderson will face a familiar opponent, as he just faced the Blackhawks on Sunday. He gave up just two goals in that game but was saddled with the loss, so he will be looking for a similar performance but a different result Thursday night.
News: Robin Lehner will not be available for Thursday's game due to the pending birth of his child, TSN's Steve Lloyd reports.
