  • Wennberg (neck) recorded a minus-2 rating over 14:11 worth of ice time in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs. Wennberg saw 2:28 worth of power-play time in this one after missing Sunday's game with a neck issue. He'll look to get back into the groove on offense Thursday against the Caps. The 22-year-old has logged 54 points in 71 games to date, but he's been held off the scoresheet over his last three contests.

  • Wennberg (neck) is projected to suit up Wednesday against the Maple Leafs, the Blue Jackets' official site reports. Wennberg was held out action Sunday as a precaution, but barring a setback, he's poised to return to action Wednesday, centering a line with Nick Foligno and Oliver Bjorkstrand. The 22-year-old checks back into action with 12 goals and 54 points in 70 games to date.

  • Wennberg (neck) is expected to practice Tuesday, The Columbus Dispatch reports. Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen wouldn't say whether Wennberg has been subjected to the league's concussion protocol, but the fact that he's already back on the ice after getting shaken up Saturday would suggest he's passed any tests that were given. The 22-year-old should still be considered questionable for Wednesday's tilt against the Maple Leafs, but he's trending in the right direction.

  • 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.

  • Wennberg took a hard hit into the boards from Ryan Strome early in the second period of Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Islanders but seems to have avoided serious injury, The Columbus Dispatch reports. "It wasn't the best feeling," Wennberg said with a smile after the game. "I'm trying to turn and it happened so quick. I came in awkwardly. I don't know if he did it on purpose; I don't think so. You just try to shake it off and play." He was able to make it off the ice under his own power after the hit and saw his usual amount of ice time, but given the nature of the hit he could have a sore neck or some whiplash heading into Sunday's game in New Jersey. Wennberg is enjoying a breakout season, having already set new career highs in goals (12) and points (54) while sitting in a tie for sixth in the NHL in power-play assists with 20, so if he does end up sitting out Sunday, it would leave a big hole in the Blue Jackets' lineup.
