Blue Jackets place Calvert on IR

Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The Columbus Blue Jackets placed forward Matt Calvert on injured reserve Monday.

Calvert is expected to miss a week with an upper-body injury. He has one goal and an assist through seven games this season.

The Blue Jackets recalled rookie forward Alexander Wennberg from Springfield of the American Hockey League to fill the roster spot.

One of Columbus' three first-round draft picks in 2013, Wennberg had been assigned to the Falcons on Sunday to clear room for defenseman Ryan Murray, who was removed from the injured non-roster list.
