The Blue Jackets aren't fully healthy, but they're getting a huge part of their team back tonight.
After missing four games, Blue Jackets defenseman Zach Werenski is back in the lineup, per the NHL's official roster report. He was initially listed as having a "body" injury before it was announced that he was out with an upper-body injury.
The Blue Jackets sent defenseman Gabriel Carlsson down to the Cleveland Monsters in anticipation of the move. Dean Kukan will be a healthy scratch tonight in Ottawa.
In 34 games this season, Werenski has scored 10 goals and pitched in with eight assists. He had been playing on the No. 1 pairing with Seth Jones for most of the season before going out due to injury.
