Wennberg will miss Sunday's game in New Jersey with a stiff neck, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Wennberg's absence is precautionary according to head coach John Tortorella. Wennberg took a big hit from Ryan Strome on Saturday that didn't force him out of the game, but he has been feeling a bit of whiplash since. William Karlsson should fill his spot on the top for the time being.
