Coach Todd Richards said Saturday that Atkinson (upper body) will miss "at least Wednesday's game" against the Wild.

Atkinson suffered the injury during Saturday's win over Boston when he took a shot from Matt Bartkowski. After sitting out Wednesday, his next chance to return will come Jan. 3 against the Coyotes.

Atkinson left Saturday's game against the Bruins with an upper-body injury and will not return, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Atkinson scored a breakaway goal and added a helper Thursday in a 4-3 shootout win over Florida, snapping a seven-game scoring slump.

He'd gone without a point over the last seven and suffered a minus-6 rating in that span, during which the Jackets lost six times. Atkinson has impressive offensive talent, but his lack of size and the team's general struggles have conspired to limit his productivity to 12 points in 24 games -- right in line with last year's scoring rate, but fantasy owners were looking for him to make strides toward 50-point productivity this year.

Atkinson scored the game winner on the power play in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the Sharks.

He picked up a rebound and slammed it into a wide-open crease. He has 10 points in 16 games, but has been doing it the hard way -- he only has one game with two points. The diminutive winger has struggled since his hot start (five points in his first four games), but the return of linemate Booner Jenner should buy Atkinson time and space to wield his offensive magic. He could be a good waiver grab as a result.

Atkinson scored his fifth goal of the season, a power play marker, in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

He's now got seven points in nine games, and with the Jackets' roster gutted by injuries Atkinson's getting plenty of ice time on the top line alongside Ryan Johansen. The diminutive winger could well be headed for a career season.

Atkinson (eye) took part in Monday's optional team skate, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Atkinson missed Saturday's game after getting cut by an opponent's skate against the Ducks on Friday, but returned to the ice Monday. He'll likely be wearing a full cage on his helmet to protect that eye for a while, but it looks like he could suit up as early as Tuesday against the Senators.

Atkinson will not play in the Blue Jackets game against the Kings on Sunday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Atkinson suffered a cut below his right eye in Columbus' game on Friday and was questionable leading up to their game on Sunday. This shouldn't be a long-term injury for the 25-year-old winger and should return to the lineup in the next few days. In seven games played, Atkinson has three goals and two assists.

Atkinson missed Wednesday's practice with the undisclosed ailment, but was back in action Thursday and at Friday's morning skate to assuage any concern about his health. As usual, he'll skate on the Blue Jackets' top line with Ryan Johansen and Nick Foligno.
