COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated defenceman James Wisniewski off injured reserve after he missed 14 games with a broken foot, and have placed centre Brandon Dubinsky on the list due to a left knee injury that has caused him to be out the last three games.

Wisniewski, who injured his foot blocking a shot on Feb. 24 at Chicago, has three goals (all on the power play) and six assists with two penalty minutes in 15 games this season.

Dubinsky was placed on the IR retroactive to March 22. He has one goal and eight assists in 19 games this season after being acquired in the blockbuster Rick Nash deal with the New York Rangers last summer.
