James Wisniewski was traded from the Blue Jackets to the Anaheim Ducks.

The Columbus Blue Jackets, out of the playoff chase, were busy at the NHL trade deadline.

The Jackets Monday afternoon traded defenseman James Wisniewski and a 2015 third round draft pick to the Anaheim Ducks for forward Rene Bourque, a prospect and a 2nd round draft pick in 2015.

The Jackets also dealt defenseman Jordan Leopold to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for defenseman Justin Falk and a 5th round draft pick.

The Blue Jackets avoided having to trade forward Cam Atkinson by signing the soon-to-be free agent to a three year contract.
