Top Alex Nylander News

  • Alexander Nylander: Won't receive qualifying offer

    Nylander is not expected to get a qualifying offer from Columbus on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Nylander will be eligible for unrestricted free agency Monday. This decision is surprising because the 26-year-old forward was productive for the Blue Jackets, with 11 goals and 15 points in 23 games after being acquired from Pittsburgh in February.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Slated to play

    Nylander (lower body) is expected to be in the lineup Thursday versus the Panthers, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Nylander took line rushes on the fourth line in warmups and Trey Fix-Wolansky skated as an extra. The 26-year-old Nylander missed Tuesday's game versus the Lightning with the injury, but it looks like the injury will only cost him one game.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Game-time call

    Nylander (lower body) is expected to be a game-time decision for Thursday's game versus the Panthers.

    Nylander's status against Florida won't be confirmed until Columbus takes the ice for pregame warmups, so fantasy managers hoping to insert him into daily lineups should plan accordingly. He's picked up 10 goals and 14 points through 20 games with the Blue Jackets this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Not playing Tuesday

    Nylander (lower body) won't play Tuesday against Tampa Bay, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Per the team, it's a lower-body injury that will sideline the winger. Nylander left the pregame warmups about halfway through and was a late scratch for Tuesday's contest. He will be replaced in the lineup by Carson Meyer.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Lights lamp twice in win

    Nylander registered two goals on three shots in Monday's 4-1 win over the Avalanche.

    Nylander reached the 10-goalm mark on the year, with his pair of tallies including the game-winner Monday. It was a tough stretch recently for Nylander as he had not produced a point over his last five games played. The 26-year-old winger has discovered his scoring touch again with the Blue Jackets, as he has 13 points in 17 games since being traded from Pittsburgh.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Ready to go Saturday

    Nylander (upper body) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Penguins, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    After missing Columbus' last two outings, Nylander will return to action Saturday against his former team. The 26-year-old winger had gone scoreless in four games prior to the injury, though he's tallied eight goals and 11 points in 15 appearances with Columbus since being acquired from the Penguins at the trade deadline. Nylander will likely return to a top-line role in Saturday's contest.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Unavailable versus Penguins

    Nylander (upper body) will not be available to play versus Pittsburgh on Thursday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    Nylander was dealt from the Penguins in exchange for Emil Bemstrom five weeks ago and has made the most of his change of scenery. Nylander has eight goals and 11 points in 15 games with the Blue Jackets and is seeing almost three minutes more ice time per game than he did in five scoreless appearances with the Penguins earlier in the season.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Sidelined with upper-body issue

    Nylander (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus Arizona, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    This is a pretty big loss for the Blue Jackets, as Nylander has played well since being traded to Columbus from Pittsburgh in late February, racking up eight goals and 11 points through 15 contests. James Malatesta is expected to draw into the lineup and make his NHL debut against the Coyotes due to Nylander's absence.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Two more goals, assist vs. Sharks

    Nylander scored a pair of goals and added an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over San Jose.

    Nylander extended the Blue Jackets' lead to 2-0 in the opening minute of the second period, beating Magnus Chrona with a wrister off the rush, before adding an assist on Johnny Gaudreau's goal later in the frame. Nylander would add a third point, matching a season high, with an empty-netter in the third. The 26-year-old winger has found his scoring touch since joining Columbus at the trade deadline, tallying eight goals and 11 points in 10 games, earning him a spot on the Jackets' top line with Gaudreau and Boone Jenner.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Goal surge continues Thursday

    Nylander scored his fifth goal of the season in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

    The 26-year-old winger gave the Blue Jackets a 2-0 lead in the first period, benefitting from an aggressive forecheck by Cole Sillinger and snapping a shot past Calvin Pickard from the slot. Nylander was viewed as a throw-in to the Emil Bemstrom trade with Pittsburgh in February, but Columbus may have uncovered a gem -- he's erupted for five goals and seven points over the last five games.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Scores hat trick

    Nylander scored three times on four shots in Monday's 6-3 win over Vegas.

    It was a night to remember for Nylander. Not only did his team get a huge win over Vegas, but he scored the first hat trick of his career. He entered the game with just one goal on the year. Nylander continues to get acclimated with his new team since being acquired from the Penguins on Feb. 22. He is now on a three-game point streak (four goals, two assists) and might be an interesting play for fantasy managers moving forward.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Deals helper Saturday

    Nylander notched an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.

    Nylander's Blue Jackets career started with little fanfare over two scoreless outings, but he's picked up three points over his last two games. The 26-year-old winger also went scoreless in five contests with the Penguins prior to his trade to Columbus in February. Nylander has seen middle-six usage and some power-play time with his new team, though fantasy managers will likely want to see a longer run of success before getting invested in the winger's performance.

  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Nylander: Bright spot in Thursday's loss

    Nylander scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Playing his third game since being acquired from the Penguins in the Emil Bemstrom deal, Nylander collected his first points as a Blue Jacket and scored his second career power-play tally in the third period with a shot that eluded Spencer Martin. The talent that made Nylander the eighth overall pick in the 2016 Draft has never shown up consistently in the NHL, but it appears as though he'll get a long look in a prominent role with the Jackets.

  • Penguins' Alexander Nylander: Back in AHL

    Nylander was sent to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

    Nylander has been a disappointment in his limited NHL career, as he was selected by Buffalo eighth overall in 2016. He played the 2019-20 season in the NHL with the Blackhawks, scoring 10 times and adding 16 assists in 65 games, but he has played sparingly ever since. Nylander has yet to pick up a point in five NHL games this season and had five goals and 10 points in 14 AHL games before his recall.
