The Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman James Wisniewski is suffering from a broken toe after breaking it on February 1st 2014 (before the Olympic Break).

He continued to play even suffering from the Broken Toe but he was always a game time decision in case the pain was too bad during the warm-up. There were even times that people were able to tell something was not right with him after he was seen wincing on the bench after shifts.

Wisniewski said, “It doesn’t sound like something that would hurt that bad — pinkie toe,” Wisniewski said. “But let me tell you, you don’t know how much you use that little guy until it’s broken. It hurts like hell.”

Before each game he would take a numbing shot in his foot and then stuff his foot into the skate so he could go out and play to the best of his ability. Even if the numbing shot worked, he mentioned it would wear off between second and third period.

The Olympic break was definitely a good help for Wisniewski and he should not be missing any time with the team.
