Jackets' Wisniewski Dishes Two Assists

News: James Wisniewski recorded two assists, including setting up Nick Foligno for the overtime winner, as the Blue Jackets evened their first round series against the Penguins with a 4-3 victory Wednesday.
Analysis: Those were his first points of the series, as unlike Jack Johnson he's had trouble getting anything going offensively. Coming off a career-best 51 point season, the Jackets could certainly use more production from James Wisniewski if they want to pull off the upset.

Wisniewski Active In Columbus Loss

News: James Wisniewski grabbed an assist in Friday's 4-3 loss to Chicago, giving him five points in the last five games.
Analysis: James Wisniewski is enjoying a rather productive season with 47 points through 70 games and remains the team's top option for scoring on the blue line.

Wisniewski Carries Jackets' Offense Thursday

News: James Wisniewski scored the Jackets' first goal on a power play, then assisted on Brandon Dubinsky's goal in a 2-0 win over Philadelphia on Thursday.
Analysis: There aren't many games left, but James Wisniewski's got a shot at matching his career-high point total of 51, set in 2010-11 with the Habs and Isles. He now has 46 points -- a whopping 25 of them on the power play, and yet he's still managed to go plus-2 on the year.

Wisniewski Nets Lone Columbus Goal

News: James Wisniewski scored the only Columbus goal of the evening in Friday's 2-1 loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: James Wisniewski's power-play marker represented his fourth point in the last two games, after he snagged three assists in Tuesday's win over Detroit. The veteran has been a bit streaky this season, but he's managed to stay healthy and has produced his best offensive season since 2011-12, when he split time between the Islanders and the Canadiens. Wisniewski has 43 points on the season and figures to factor into whatever scoring Columbus can muster on the power play most nights.

Jackets' Wisniewski Notches Three Helpers

News: James Wisniewski snapped a five-game pointless slump with a three-assist night in Tuesday's win over Detroit.
Analysis: The third one came on an empty-netter, but hey, it's still a hat trick of assists. James Wisniewski had managed just four points in 12 March games entering Tuesday's action, so his fantasy owners have to be thrilled with the breakout night.

James Wisniewski

Jackets' Wisniewski Tallies Goal Thursday

News: James Wisniewski notched his sixth goal of the season in Thursday's loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: James Wisniewski continues to enjoy an unlikely productive campaign at age 30, as his 39 points with 16 games still left to play are on pace for his career high 51 in 2010-11. He hasn't shown any signs of slowing down since the break, totaling four points in his last seven games.

Jackets' Wisniewski Returns To Practice

News: James Wisniewski (toe) returned to practice Sunday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: James Wisniewski may still be experiencing some slight pain while he looks to get over a broken left pinkie toe, but it's nothing that will cost him any game action. The 30-year-old is enjoying a productive season with a career-best 35 points in only 51 games.

Jackets' Wisniewski Unlikely To Skate This Week

News: James Wisniewski (toe) is unlikely to skate again until next week, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: James Wisniewski probably could practice if truly necessary, but with a full week off until game action resumes, the team will give him some further time off to allow his broken pinkie toe to heal up. Look for him back at practice early next week as he prepares to rejoin the lineup for their Feb. 27 game against the Devils.

Jackets' Wisniewski Questionable To Practice

News: James Wisniewski (toe) is questionable to practice this week, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd Richards wants to give James Wisniewski some time to let his broken pinkie toe heal after he was forced to play through the injury for the final few games before the break. There's a chance Wisniewski may not be fully recovered when play resumes next week, but once again, it shouldn't prevent him from missing any action.

Jackets' Wisniewski Dealing With Broken Toe

News: The lower-body injury James Wisniewski has been dealing with over the last week is actually a broken pinkie toe, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He should be fully healthy when the NHL schedule picks back up after the Olympic break, however.

Blue Jackets' Wisniewski Suits Up Thursday

News: James Wisniewski (lower body) is playing in Thursday's game against the Kings.
Analysis: James Wisniewski wasn't expected to miss any time and his status was confirmed right before the opening face-off. He's merely dealing with a bruise, so fantasy owners should probably use him as they normally would. The Blue Jackets face the Sharks in the second game of a back-to-back Friday, before heading into the Olympic break.

Blue Jackets' Wisniewski Misses Practice

News: Though James Wisniewski (lower body) did not practice Wednesday, he is expected to play Thursday against the Kings, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Earlier reports suggested that James Wisniewski could be a game-time decision Thursday, so despite this nugget, his status will still be worth tracking in advance of that contest.

Jackets' Wisniewski A Game-Time Decision Monday

News: James Wisniewski is suffering from a lower-body bruise and will be a game-time decision Monday against the Ducks, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: James Wisniewski obtained the injury after blocking a shot late in Saturday's victory over the Panthers. He'll be reevaluated during warmups before a decision on his status is rendered.

James Wisniewski

Blue Jackets' Wisniewski Active Monday

News: James Wisniewski (lower body) is active for Monday's game against the Ducks, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: James Wisniewski did not miss any time with the bruise and will likely be fine, assuming he makes it through Monday's game without issue.

Blue Jackets' Wisniewski Takes Ice For Warmups

News: James Wisniewski (lower body) was on the ice for pregame warmups and will likely play in Monday's game against the Ducks, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Considered a game-time decision due to a bruise, James Wisniewski is seemingly on track to suit up. With 33 points (five goals) in 48 games this season, he's been one of the more productive blue-line options for fantasy owners.

James Wisniewski, D, CLB Jackets' Wisniewski Continues Hot January

James Wisniewski

Jackets' Wisniewski Continues Hot January

News: James Wisniewski scored one of the Jackets' goals and assisted on the other -- both on the power play -- in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: Despite the losing result, it's nice for James Wisniewski's fantasy owners to see him back on the scoresheet after he'd gone minus-4 over the last two games following a six-game point streak. January has been the defenseman's best month of the year by far, as he's kicking along at a point-per-game pace over 13 contests and has ripped off an impressive eight points on the man advantage.

James Wisniewski, D, CLB Jackets' Wisniewski Streaking

James Wisniewski

Jackets' Wisniewski Streaking

News: James Wisniewski logged a pair of assists Tuesday against the Kings, pushing his point streak to five games.
Analysis: He's handed out six assists over these five games and added a goal as well. With the fine night, James Wisniewski has now reached the 30-point mark for just the third time in his career. That'd be a surprising stat for such an offensively oriented defenseman if not for his penchant for injury.

Small Streak For Jackets' Wisniewski

News: James Wisniewski scored a power-play goal in Friday's 5-1 win over Columbus, his fourth point in the last three games.
Analysis: When healthy, James Wisniewski is a steady producer in terms of points-per-game, even on a crowded Columbus blue line. He's been enjoying the team's scoring surge of late and sits with 27 points through 40 games.

1/11/2014

James Wisniewski, D, CLB Jackets' Wisniewski: Two More Assists

James Wisniewski

Jackets' Wisniewski: Two More Assists

News: James Wisniewski set up two Columbus goals in Saturday's 6-3 win over Winnipeg. He has 25 points on the season and is the best pace since his career high of 51 points (2010-11).
Analysis: Of course, every year of his career has been riddled with injuries and this one is no different. He'd be an outstanding roll if he could stay out of the infirmary. For now, you need a handcuff to get you through those sick bay games.

James Wisniewski

Jackets' Wisniewski Has Two-Point Night Monday

News: James Wisniewski scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-3 shootout win over the Rangers.
Analysis: He's got a goal and five points in eight games since coming off IR, although Monday's plus-2 effort was the first time in that stretch he'd managed a plus-minus above zero. You know what you get with James Wisniewski: solid offensive numbers from the blue line with a shaky defensive performance.

Jackets' Wisniewski Picks Up Assist In Return

News: James Wisniewski (upper body) played over 23 minutes in his return to action Saturday and recorded a power-play assist.
Analysis: He'd been on a five-game pointless slide before getting hurt, so his owners are glad to see James Wisniewski come back out of the gate firing. His 19 points (in just 29 games) still have him in the top 20 in defenseman scoring on the season, tied with players like Drew Doughty and Ryan McDonagh who likely came with much higher price tags on draft day.

Blue Jackets Activate Wisniewski From IR

News: The Blue Jackets activated James Wisniewski from injured reserve Friday.
Analysis: As reported earlier, the move ensures James Wisniewski will play Saturday against the Flyers. Both Wisniewski and Tim Erixon took turns skating as a part of the third defensive pairing with Nikita Nikitin at Friday's practice, but it's unclear where exactly he'll suit up in his return to the lineup.

Jackets' Wisniewski Will Play Saturday

News: James Wisniewski (upper body) will be activated from IR and play Saturday vs. the Flyers, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: In addition to James Wisniewski, the Blue Jackets will also get winger Marian Gaborik against the Flyers, adding significant reinforcements to the team's offensive attack. Wisniewski ranks fourth on the team and first among defensemen with 18 points in 28 games this season.

Jackets' Wisniewski Out Thursday

News: James Wisniewski (upper body) will not play Thursday against the Flyers, Dan Kamal of Fox Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: The blueliner will aim to return Saturday, when the Jackets finish up their home-and-home series with the Flyers back in Columbus.

Jackets' Wisniewski Skates

News: James Wisniewski (upper body) skated with the team Wednesday morning, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: James Wisniewski has been out since Decenmber 6 with the injury, but could find his way back into the lineup this week. With two goals and 16 assists in 28 games, he's one of the leaders on the Columbus blue line, and fantasy owners will be happy to have him back.
