Gaustad (lower body) won't play Friday against the Blue Jackets, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

Gaustad has been sidelined for nearly two weeks with the lower-body issue, and there's no real indication of when he's set to return. Colton Sissons will once again draw into the lineup in his place, making Gaustad's next chance to return the lineup Saturday against the Wild.
