Top Cole Sillinger News

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Picks up helper in win

    Sillinger recorded an assist and blocked two shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Flames.

    Sillinger led the Blue Jackets' forwards with 18:52 of ice time in this contest. The 20-year-old center helped out on a Yegor Chinakhov tally in the first period. Sillinger has five points over nine outings in January, providing solid offense but not enough to match his current top-line role. He's at 19 points, 83 shots on net, 47 hits, 46 blocked shots, 28 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 42 appearances this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Scores goal in loss to Devils

    Sillinger provided a goal in a 4-1 loss to New Jersey on Friday.

    Sillinger put Columbus ahead 1-0 just 4:21 into the contest, but the Blue Jackets were unable to build off that lead. The 20-year-old forward snapped his three-game scoring drought. Sillinger has eight goals and 18 points in 40 outings in 2023-24. Those aren't great numbers, but the No. 12 overall pick from the 2021 NHL Draft does still have significant untapped upside, so he shouldn't be dismissed.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Second career hat trick not enough

    Sillinger scored three goals, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Wild.

    The 20-year-old's second career hat trick involved a goal in every period, each one giving the Blue Jackets a lead that they coughed up before the frame was over. Sillinger has caught fire, scoring six goals and eight points over the last nine games, and the 12th overall pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft seems to be putting last season's woeful sophomore slump firmly behind him.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Two-point effort Tuesday

    Sillinger scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 9-4 rout of the Sabres.

    Both points came in the third period as the Blue Jackets wrapped up the massive victory. Sillinger also added a team-high five shots on net, a blocked shot, a hit and a plus-2 rating to his ledger while winning eight of his 16 faceoffs, one of the more well-rounded performances of the season for the 20-year-old. He's still trying to find some consistency on offense -- Sillinger had only one assist in his prior seven games, a stretch broken up by a five-game absence due to an upper-body injury -- but the 12th overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft remains a key part of Columbus' future.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Activated from IR

    Sillinger (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Sunday.

    Sillinger is expected to return from a five-game absence in Sunday's contest against Florida. He has picked up one goal, eight assists, 42 shots on net, 25 blocked shots and 23 hits across 24 appearances this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Moved to IR

    Sillinger (upper body) was placed on the injured reserve list Wednesday.

    Sillinger has a goal and nine points in 24 contests in 2023-24. He hasn't played since last Wednesday, so this move is presumably retroactive to that date. If that's the case, then Sillinger can be activated whenever he's healthy, though Columbus probably wouldn't have made this move unless the 20-year-old was expected to at least miss one more game. Emil Bemstrom, who was summoned from AHL Cleveland in a corresponding move, might play Thursday against the Islanders in Sillinger's stead.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Remains out Tuesday

    Sillinger (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus the Kings, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Sillinger will sit for a third straight game with the injury. With Patrik Laine (illness) also sidelined, Mathieu Olivier is set to draw in on the fourth line while Alexandre Texier moves up to the third line. Sillinger's next chance to play is Thursday versus the Islanders.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Still day-to-day

    Sillinger (upper body) is not expected to play Sunday against Boston, according to Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site.

    Sillinger, who remains day-to-day, will miss his second straight contest. He has registered one goal, eight assists, 42 shots on net, 25 blocked shots and 23 hits over 24 games this campaign. Mathieu Olivier has been playing during Sillinger's absence.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Out Friday

    Sillinger (upper body) will not suit up Friday against the Senators, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Sillinger was injured Wednesday against Montreal and will now miss at least one game as a result. The team has not yet given a timeline on when he's expected to return. The 20-year-old has nine points in 24 games this season, including four in his last seven appearances.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Dealing with upper-body injury

    Sillinger suffered a upper-body injury Wednesday versus Montreal and is considered day-to-day, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

    Sillinger is questionable for Friday's tilt versus Ottawa. He has a goal and nine points in 24 games. The 20-year-old had a very good rookie season in 2021-22 when he managed 16 goals and 31 points in 75 contests, but he slumped mightily last year, picking up three goals and 11 points in 64 NHL outings.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Not practicing Thursday

    Per Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site, Sillinger (undisclosed) is not at practice Thursday.

    Sillinger was apparently injured during Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Montreal. Sillinger has a goal and nine points in 24 games. The Blue Jackets recalled Kent Johnson from AHL Cleveland and he could get into the lineup Friday versus Ottawa should Sillinger be unable to go. Consider Sillinger day-to-day.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: First goal of season is game-winner

    Sillinger scored what proved to be the game-winning goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 7-3 victory over Chicago.

    Sillinger had an impressive night at the faceoff dot, winning six of seven draws, and he finally got the monkey off his back with his first goal of the season, tipping home a Zach Werenski shot in the second period to give the Blue Jackets a 4-1 lead. Sillinger's production has cratered since a solid rookie campaign, and over his last 84 NHL games, he's managed only four goals and 19 points. However, the 12th overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft remains a big piece of the Jackets' future, and he's become a key member of a Columbus penalty-kill unit that ranks third in the league this season with an 88.1 percent success rate. Don't write Sillinger off yet.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Chips in with assist

    Sillinger posted an assist in Monday's 5-3 road loss against the Stars.

    Sillinger also contributed with three shots on goal and a hit while taking two minor penalties in his 13:16 of ice time across 21 shifts. Suitcase's son also went 6-for-12 at the faceoff dot. The 20-year-old has managed just three assists and a minus-1 rating across nine games with 13 PIM. The bottom-six forward doesn't offer much fantasy value outside of the very deepest of formats with his current usage.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Not guaranteed roster spot

    Sillinger could begin the season back with AHL Cleveland due to the Blue Jackets' roster crunch, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    The 20-year-old was the 12th overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft and is still very much in the Blue Jackets' future plans, but Sillinger has an extra hurdle to overcome as one of a handful of players on the roster who can be sent to the AHL without needing to clear waivers. He's also coming off a rough sophomore campaign, with three goals and 11 points in 64 outings, after scoring 16 goals and 31 points in 79 NHL games as an 18-year-old rookie. Sillinger managed two goals and six points in 11 games with AHL Cleveland last season. With Adam Fantilli now in town as the Jackets' franchise player, Sillinger is facing less pressure to develop into a future No. 1 center, but regaining his confidence in the minors before returning to Columbus could help him secure a middle-six role down the road.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Sent to AHL

    Sillinger was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Thursday.

    It has been a real tough sophomore season for Sillinger, who snapped a 45-game goalless streak March 17 with his third goal of the season. Sillinger has 11 points in 64 games after scoring 16 times and adding 15 assists as an 18-year-old rookie in 2021-22. Look for a rebound season in 2023-24, as he should regain some confidence playing in the AHL the rest of the way.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Provides power-play goal

    Sillinger scored a power-play goal in Columbus' 7-4 loss to Anaheim on Friday.

    Sillinger's marker came late in the second period to tie the game at 3-3. He has three goals and 10 points in 62 appearances this season, including three points with the man advantage. Sillinger didn't score a goal over his previous 45 contests, and he had just four assists in that span.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Recalled from AHL

    As expected, Sillinger was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Friday. Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

    Sillinger was sent to the minors Friday morning in a paper move that made him eligible for the AHL playoffs. The 19-year-old has struggled this season, scoring twice while adding six assists in 55 games with the Blue Jackets. Should Cleveland make the AHL playoffs, Sillinger will gain valuable experience that should help his game in the future.

  • Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Sent to AHL

    Sillinger was sent to AHL Cleveland on Friday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    This is a paper move to make Sillinger eligible for the AHL playoffs as the Blue Jackets would love to get their center extra playing time after the NHL season ends in April. Sillinger should be recalled at some point Friday. He has only two goals and six assists in 55 top-level games this season, a far cry from the 16 goals and 31 points he managed as an 18-year-old rookie in the 2021-22 season.
