Description: Columbus forward Cam Atkinson didn't skate Wednesday due to a "minor lower-body issue." He is questionable for Saturday's season opener against the Predators. SOURCE: Columbus Dispatch
Insight: "I wouldn't say (I'm) concerned," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. "I guess there's possibilities in anything, whether he's in or he's out. But right now Im not concerned." The only reason Atkinson would miss Saturday's game is because the team is taking precautions with a condensed 48-game schedule ahead. Atkinson is expected to skate on Columbus' top line.
