Depth may soon be returning to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Forward Alex Wennberg, defenseman Ryan Murray and forward Brandon Dubinsky all skated during practice according to The Athletic's Tom Reed. The trio has been out for different periods of time but all look to be coming back at a good time for the team. 

Wennberg and Murray are dealing with upper-body injuries, while Dubinsky broke an orbital bone in his face. None have been placed on any lines or pairings during practice. 

With the Blue Jackets bye week coming up it appears that returns would take place after the league-mandated vacation.

The lines for the team are currently a little thin as Blue Jacket forward Sonny Milano has also gone down with an injury that was suffered during their game against the Maple Leafs.



In 31 games this season, Dubinsky has three goals and nine assists for a total of 12 points. In 30 games this season, Wennberg has four goals and twelve assists for a total of 16 points. Murray has played in 24 games this season putting up one goal and four assists for a total of five points on the season.
