  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Posts pair of assists in win

    Gudbranson logged two assists and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Sharks.

    Gudbranson had an undisclosed injury in Friday's practice, but he didn't miss a game. He's racked up three helpers over his last two contests and now has 17 points through 49 outings. That matches his career-best production from 78 games in 2021-22 with the Flames, so there's a good chance the 32-year-old sets a new high-water mark this season. He's added 53 hits, 114 blocked shots, 55 PIM, 50 shots on net and a minus-11 rating while seeing time in a bottom-four role for much of the campaign.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Available to play

    Gudbranson (undisclosed) will be in the lineup Saturday versus San Jose, according to Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch.

    Gudbranson will be good to go despite tweaking something during Friday's practice. He has picked up 54 hits, 114 blocked shots and 15 points across 48 appearances this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Sustains undisclosed injury

    Gudbranson suffered an undisclosed injury during Friday's practice but might still be able to play Saturday against San Jose, Blue Jackets radio host Dylan Tyrer reports.

    Gudbranson has three goals, 15 points, 55 PIM, 52 hits and 114 blocks in 48 games this season. If the 32-year-old isn't available Saturday, then Andrew Peeke will likely draw into the lineup. Ivan Provorov's (undisclosed) status is also undetermined for Saturday's contest, so it's possible Columbus will need to recall a defenseman from the minors.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Supplies helper against old team

    Gudbranson notched a shorthanded assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Flames.

    Gudbranson got on the scoresheet against his old team with the secondary helper on Alexandre Texier's second-period marker. This was was Gudbranson's second assist over nine games in January. The big defenseman has 14 points through 43 outings, which is already better than the 13 points he had in 70 contests a year ago. He's added 45 shots on net, 39 hits, 108 blocked shots, 51 PIM and a minus-15 rating in 2023-24.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Eligible to play Saturday

    Gudbranson has served his one-game suspension and will be eligible to face New Jersey on Saturday.

    Gudbranson has played in just one of the team's last five contests due to his suspension and an illness. The blueliner has scored just once in his last 17 appearances while registering a mere 18 shots, though he did record eight helpers over that stretch. Still, even with his return the Ottawa native is unlikely to become useful from a fantasy perspective considering he has never reached the 20-point threshold in his career.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Suspended one game

    Gudbranson received a one-game suspension after his role as the aggressor in an incident with Florida's Nick Cousins.

    Gudbranson racked up 29 PIM -- including a game misconduct -- during Sunday's game against the Panthers. He'll now miss Thursday's game against Toronto and be eligible to return Saturday against the Devils. The 31-year-old has 10 points in 27 games this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Set for hearing

    Gudbranson will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety after he was the aggressor in an incident with Florida's Nick Cousins on Sunday.

    The 31-year-old racked up 29 PIM -- including a game misconduct in the third period after he jumped Cousins, following an earlier incident in which the Panthers forward had driven him head-first into the boards -- and an assist in Sunday's loss to Florida. Gudbranson has 10 points, 42 PIM and 66 blocked shots through 27 games. If he receives a suspension, he'll miss at least Thursday's game against Toronto.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Ready to rock

    Gudbranson (illness) will be back in the lineup Sunday against the Panthers, per Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site.

    Gudbranson will return to action following a three-game absence. He has accounted for two goals, nine points, 29 shots on net, 64 blocked shots and 21 hits across 26 contests this campaign. Gudbranson will replace Andrew Peeke in the lineup.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Remains unavailable against Blues

    Gudbranson (illness) has been ruled out versus St. Louis on Friday, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Gudbranson was mired in a five-match pointless streak prior to his three-game absence. As such, the majority of fantasy players probably aren't anxiously awaiting the blueliner's return to action. Andrew Peeke figures to remain in the lineup with Gudbranson shelved.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Still under the weather

    Gudbranson (illness) did not travel to New York and will miss Thursday's clash with the Islanders, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Gudbranson will be shelved for the second consecutive contest due to his illness. The blueliner is pointless in his last five games while registering seven shots, 11 blocks and six hits over that span. The Ottawa native has never reached the 20-point threshold in his NHL career but could get there this year considering he is already at nine points through 26 contests.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Not playing Tuesday

    Gudbranson (illness) did not take the ice for warmups, indicating he'll be out Tuesday versus the Kings, Coby Maeir of 1st Ohio Battery reports.

    Gudbranson was considered a game-time decision earlier Tuesday, but it appears he'll need to sit out at least one contest. The 31-year-old will be replaced by Andrew Peeke in the lineup. Gudbranson has nine points and 64 blocked shots through 26 games this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Game-time decision

    Gudbranson (illness) will be a game-time decision Tuesday against the Kings, according to Aaron Portzline of The Athletic.

    Gudbranson has chipped in two goals, seven assists, 29 shots on net, 64 blocked shots and 21 hits in 26 games this season. If Gudbranson's unable to play, Andrew Peeke will be in the lineup.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Dishes pair of helpers

    Gudbranson recorded two assists, three hits and five blocked shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers.

    Gudbranson had no offense in October, but he's sparked his scoring touch with a goal and five helpers over six games in November. The 31-year-old helped out on tallies from Justin Danforth and Sean Kuraly in this contest. Gudbranson is up to six points, 41 blocks, 13 hits, 13 PIM, 15 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 15 appearances this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Set to play Monday

    Gudbranson (lower body) is expected to play versus Dallas on Monday, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Gudbranson will avoid missing any games after being limited to just 16:49 of ice time against the Islanders on Saturday, his fewest minutes of the season. Considering the blueliner has never reached the 20-point mark in his 13-year NHL career, it shouldn't be a surprise he has yet to earn a point over eight contests in 2023-24.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Questionable for Monday

    Gudbranson (lower body) is questionable for Monday's matchup with Dallas, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

    Gudbranson, who didn't practice Sunday, will be re-evaluated prior to Monday's contest to determine his availability. He has been credited with 10 shots on goal, seven hits and 26 blocked shots in eight games this season. If Gudbranson can't play against the Stars, Adam Boqvist or Andrew Peeke could draw into the lineup.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Skating on first day of camp

    Gudbranson (shoulder) was on the ice for Thursday's practice at Blue Jackets camp, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

    Gudbranson worked alongside newcomer Ivan Provorov, which could be a glimpse at a new pairing this season, though it is early in camp. The 31-year-old Gudbranson's 2022-23 campaign ended with a separated shoulder in March after he produced 13 points, 119 hits, 137 blocked shots and a minus-24 rating in 70 contests. He'll likely be a regular in the Blue Jackets' lineup as a bottom-four defenseman this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Set for six-week absence

    Gubdranson suffered a separated shoulder that will sideline him for six weeks, the team announced Monday.

    Gudbranson's recovery timeline means he will be out for the remainder of the 2022-23 campaign. As such, the 31-year-old blueliner will finish the year having registered one goal and 12 assists in 70 games while averaging 21:18 of ice time. Despite logging career-high minutes this season, it didn't translate into points -- he missed the 15-point mark for the 11th time in his 12-year career.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Could be facing extended absence

    Gudbranson (upper body) will not travel to Montreal on Saturday and could be dealing with a "longer-term" injury, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Based on the wording from head coach Brad Larsen, Gudbranson could be out for the entire three-game road trip. The 31-year-old blueliner can be considered out indefinitely until more information is available. Columbus will need to promote a replacement from AHL Cleveland.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Exits Friday's game

    Gudbranson (upper body) will not return to Friday's game against the Islanders, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    Gudbranson logged 16:21 of ice time with one shot before leaving Friday's contest. The veteran blueliner has 13 points in 70 games this season. An update on his status could be available before Saturday's game in Montreal.
