Werenski picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings. Remarkably, it's Werenski's first multi-point performance of the season, as injuries have contributed to his slow start. The blueliner has only one goal and seven points through 17 games, but now that he's healthy he's capable of ramping up his production in a hurry.
Werenski (lower body) will return to the lineup for Thursday's clash with Chicago, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports. Werenski has missed Columbus' last four contests with a lower-body injury, but he'll return to his usual top-four role Thursday. The 24-year-old American has had a somewhat disappointing start to the season, having picked up just one goal and five points while posting a minus-7 rating through 13 games.
Werenski (lower body) won't be in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets. Werenski will miss a fourth straight game Tuesday, and at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to return. Vladislav Gavrikov will likely continue to skate on Columbus' top pairing until Werenski's ready to return.
Werenski (lower body) remains out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Predators, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports. The 24-year-old has only been able to suit up for one of the Jackets' last seven games, continuing a disappointing start to his season. Werenski's next chance to rejoin the lineup will come Tuesday against Chicago.
Werenski (lower body) isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Predators, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports. Werenski aggravated the lower-body issue during Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, and will miss his second straigh tgame. With the 24-year-old blueliner unavailable, Seth Jones will continue to quarterback the No. 1 power-play unit, with Michael Del Zotto staying in the lineup on the back end.
