Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman James Wisniewski will miss about a week with an upper-body injury, coach Todd Richards said Sunday.
David Savard will take his spot in the lineup, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
Wisniewski leads all Blue Jackets defensemen with 18 points (two goals and 16 assists).
Also, Richards said forward Matt Calvert (upper body) and forward Brandon Dubinsky (paternity leave) practiced Sunday and will play against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday. However, forward Jared Boll (foot) is out after a setback.
