Dubinsky (wrist) won't play Friday against Anaheim, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky has yet to play this season due to a wrist injury and remains without a timetable for his return to the lineup. The veteran pivot will need to be activated off injured reserve before making his season debut, so expect another update on his status once that occurs.

Dubinsky (wrist) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is essentially a formality since Dubinsky was already set to miss the season opener with this wrist issue. There's still no timeline for Dubinsky's return, but the earliest he can play in a game will be Oct. 7 versus the Sabres. Once he's healthy again, Dubinsky will fill in on the bottom six.

Dubinsky is out indefinitely with a wrist injury and will miss the start of the 2019-20 campaign.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky failed to hit the 65-game mark in either of his previous two seasons and appears set to miss some time this year as well. The veteran has seen himself bumped from a top-six role, and likely will fill in as a fourth-line center. Gone are the days in which Dubinsky was a 50-point producer, with his ceiling likely in the 20-25 point range.

Dubinsky (concussion) will take part in Tuesday's Game 4 against the Lightning, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky cleared the league's concussion protocol after Game 3 and was expected to play Tuesday after receiving that evaluation. He should remain on the fourth line alongside Boone Jenner and Riley Nash after coach John Tortorella declared no lineup changes.

Dubinsky (concussion) successfully passed league protocol following Game 3 but will be re-evaluated Tuesday ahead of Game 4, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The forward declared himself "ready to rock" when speaking to the media Monday, a clear sign Dubinsky has little doubt he'll be good to go for what could be a series-clinching game for Columbus. He was forced to depart Sunday after being involved in a collision with Tampa defenseman, Braydon Coburn.

Columbus activated Dubinsky (lower body) off injured reserve Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky has missed the Blue Jackets' last seven games due to a lower-body injury, but he was a full participant at Monday's practice, which was the first indication that he was likely on the brink of rejoining the lineup. The 32-year-old is still a decent bottom-six option for Columbus at this stage in his career, but he's only notched 11 points in 37 appearances this campaign, so he's not a viable option in most fantasy formats.

Dubinsky (lower body) joined the team for practice Monday, but won't suit up against the Lightning, Craig Merz of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky will miss his seventh game as a result of his lower-body problem. The 32-year-old remains on injured reserve, but the fact that he is able to practice with the team is a good step in the right direction. Once given the all-clear Dubinsky will need to be activated off injured reserve, which could force Kole Sherwood or Eric Robinson back to the minors -- though if the center's activation comes after Monday's trade deadline, the team won't need to stay under the 23-man limit, which would allow it to keep both guys in the NHL.

Dubinsky (lower body) was designated for injured reserve Friday, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The news effectively rules Dubinsky out against the Blackhawks on Saturday, though he could technically still be activated in time to play if the team utilized retroactive IR. With the 32-year-old sidelined and Boone Jenner (undisclosed) also out versus Chicago, the Jackets recalled Cole Sherwood from the minors, who figures to slot into a fourth-line role.

Dubinsky (lower body) remains day-to-day and won't be in the lineup against the Islanders on Thursday, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dubinsky will miss his fifth straight game due to injury and ninth in the club's last 14 outings. Prior to getting hurt, the center was struggling to produce offensively with just two points in his previous 19 outings. The 32-year-old has seen his minutes drastically reduced this year, as he is averaging a mere 12:43 of ice time compared to 15:21 and 17:54 in 2017-18 and 2016-17, respectively.

Dubinsky's chances of participation in Thursday's clash with the Islanders are unclear as he continues to deal with a lower-body injury, Jeff Svoboda of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach John Tortorella told Svoboda that he hasn't received a recent update on Dubinsky, who last played on Feb. 2. At this point, Dubinsky should be considered a game-time decision at best.
