Blue Jackets' Wisniewski 'significantly hobbled' in loss to Penguins

Tom Szczerbowski / USA TODAY Sports

Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman James Wisniewski's trade value has suffered another hit. This time, though, the trade obstacle was painful and involuntary. 

Wisniewski took a shot off the left foot in Sunday's loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, and Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports he may be injured.

The high-priced Blue Jacket made his desire to stay in Columbus well known. He filled out his no-trade list with only the teams who have the cap flexibility necessary to take on his contract, minimizing the possibility of him being moved before the deadline.
