Wennberg took a hard hit into the boards from Ryan Strome early in the second period of Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Islanders but seems to have avoided serious injury, The Columbus Dispatch reports. "It wasn't the best feeling," Wennberg said with a smile after the game. "I'm trying to turn and it happened so quick. I came in awkwardly. I don't know if he did it on purpose; I don't think so. You just try to shake it off and play."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Wennberg showed some growth in his sophomore campaign, doubling his goal and point totals while improving his plus-minus and generally looking a lot readier for the rigors of the NHL. The 21-year-old will be asked to make another leap forward in 2016-17, however, as the Jackets’ lack of depth up the middle has him penciled in as the second-line center to begin the season. That role would provide him with a much-improved supporting cast, likely including Brandon Saad, but while the young pivot’s already demonstrated that he can handle himself in his own end, Wennberg hasn't yet proven he's ready for that level of responsibility on offense. Assuming he uses this offseason to get stronger and avoid the various injuries that cost him 13 games last year, though, the Swede’s outstanding vision, passing and hockey IQ could allow him to challenge the 50-assist mark thanks to the snipers riding shotgun for him.

2014-15

Last year's 14th overall pick has the skill and hockey IQ to excel in just about any role on an NHL roster, and the 19-year-old Wennberg will get a legitimate chance to earn a spot on the Columbus roster in training camp. His fantasy ceiling might be limited at the outset, but down the road, he could comfortably settle in on a second or third line and be the kind of player who contributes at both ends of the ice.

2013-14

The 14th overall pick in this year's draft, Wennberg has the skill, smarts and drive to make an impact in every zone on the ice once he transitions over to North America. He's still a couple of years away from the NHL, but he should adapt quickly to the pro game and become a fixture in the Blue Jackets' lineup.
