Nutivaara (upper-body) will not travel on the Blue Jackets' three-game road trip.

Nutivaara played just 5:20 TOI before leaving Tuesday's game vs. the Golden Knights with an upper-body injury. Nutivaara did not travel with the team which means he'll miss at least three games, putting Columbus down two regular defensemen. Scott Harrington is expected to draw-in and replaces Nutivaara on Thursday and Adam Clendening was recalled from AHL to serve as the No.7 defenseman.

Nutivaara (upper-body) will not play in Game 3.

Nutivaara absorbed a big hit from Nikita Kucherov towards the end of Game 2 (Kucherov was suspended one-game for the hit) and it will cost Nutivaara at least one game as well. Nutivaara was on the ice for warmups but was a late scratch, which suggests that he won't be out long term. Adam Clendening will replace him on the blueline.
