Schlemko (lower body) will not play Friday to be with his wife, who is expecting to give birth, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Schlemko (lower body) said his injury is minor and he should be ready to play Friday versus the Canadiens, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Given that Schlemko is already looking ahead to Friday's game, it's probably safe to assume that he will not draw into the match with the Blue Jackets on Wednesday night. Eric Gelinas could get more playing time as long as Schlemko needs time to heal.
