|Wisniewski Conference Call|
The Jackets acquired the rights to the defenseman from Montreal earlier this week, trying to get him signed before any other team had a crack.
Wisniewski figured to be one of the more sought-after defensemen today. He might not be the best defender in hockey, but he provides a massive offensive boost to the Blue Jackets' blue line. Acquired by the Canadiens before last season, "Wiz" had 10 goals and 41 assists, leading Montreal defensemen.
The 27-year-old native of Canton, Mich., joins his fourth team in seven seasons, beginning his career with Chicago before moving on to Anaheim.
