Top Blue Jackets News

  • Blue Jackets' Nick Blankenburg: Has an upper-body injury

    Blankenburg is dealing with an upper-body injury and will miss Friday's game against Vancouver, according to Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch.

    Blankenburg is regarded as being day-to-day beyond Friday's contest. He has three goals and seven points in 15 games in 2022-23. Gavin Bayreuther, who has spent Columbus' last seven games as a healthy scratch, is projected to draw back into the lineup.

  • Blue Jackets' Joonas Korpisalo: Slated to start Friday

    Korpisalo is expected to start on the road against Vancouver on Friday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

    Korpisalo stopped 34 of 36 shots in a 3-2 overtime win against Edmonton on Wednesday. He's 8-8-2 with a 3.22 GAA and a .910 save percentage in 21 contests in 2022-23. Vancouver has the 10th-ranked offense with 3.27 goals per game.

  • Blue Jackets' Gustav Nyquist: Out indefinitely

    Nyquist (upper body) is being termed as out indefinitely by the Blue Jackets.

    Nyquist logged just 3:33 of ice time before exiting Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win against Edmonton because of the injury. He has 10 goals and 22 points in 48 contests while averaging 17:48 of ice time in 2022-23. With Nyquist unavailable, Emil Bemstrom, who was a healthy scratch Wednesday, is projected to draw back into the lineup Friday versus Vancouver.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Nabs assist in overtime

    Gudbranson logged an assist, five blocked shots and two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

    Gudbranson has picked up helpers in consecutive contests to begin this road trip after going 17 games without a point. The 31-year-old defenseman isn't known for his offense, instead providing a physical playing style on the second or third pairing. He's at 10 points, 62 shots on net, 86 hits, 93 blocked shots, 36 PIM and a minus-19 rating through 47 appearances.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Boqvist: Provides another helper

    Boqvist notched an assist, three shots on goal, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

    Boqvist is up to six assists over nine games since he was scratched twice earlier in the month. It appears he got the message, and he's been able to log regular bottom-four minutes since then. The Swede has eight assists, 23 shots on net, 15 blocked shots, 10 hits and a minus-2 rating through 18 outings overall.

  • Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Generates helper Wednesday

    Laine logged an assist and seven shots on goal in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

    Laine helped out on Boone Jenner's first-period marker. During his four-game point streak, Laine has two goals and five assists while putting 16 shots on net. The 24-year-old winger has been dynamic when healthy, racking up 14 goals, 15 helpers, 123 shots on net and a minus-7 rating through 33 appearances this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Johnny Gaudreau: Sets up game-winner in overtime

    Gaudreau produced an assist, two shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

    Gaudreau's point streak is up to four games (one goal, five assists). He set up Kent Johnson's first career game-winning goal at 2:29 of the extra session Wednesday. Gaudreau continues to be a bright spot for the Blue Jackets in a disappointing season for the team -- he's up to 47 points, 128 shots on net, 18 PIM and a minus-15 rating through 48 contests.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Goals in back-to-back games

    Marchenko scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

    Marchenko tied the game with a third-period tally. He's scored in back-to-back outings after going six games without a point. The 22-year-old winger's 11 goals and zero assists in 25 contests represent a stat line not seen for a rookie since 1926-27, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports. As long as he's scoring, Marchenko could have some fantasy appeal, but managers would probably prefer to see him round out his play.

  • Blue Jackets' Boone Jenner: Tallies opening goal

    Jenner scored a goal, logged three hits and blocked three shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

    Jenner has scored in three straight contests. The 29-year-old is up to 14 tallies, 25 points, 114 shots on net, 66 hits, 43 blocked shots and a minus-12 rating through 37 appearances this season. As long as he remains in a top-six role, he should have some appeal as an all-around producer in fantasy.

  • Blue Jackets' Kent Johnson: Nets first career overtime tally

    Johnson scored a goal on four shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

    Johnson secured the win halfway through overtime, snapping a 15-game goal drought with his first career overtime tally. The 20-year-old had five assists during that slump -- he's yet to find consistency at both ends of the ice, leading to a fluctuation in role and playing time. He's up to nine tallies, 13 helpers, 63 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 45 contests this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Joonas Korpisalo: Keeps Oilers in check

    Korpisalo allowed two goals on 36 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

    The Oilers' goals came 5:59 apart in the second period, but Korpisalo was otherwise the best player in the game. He helped the Blue Jackets scrape together three of a possible four points through the first half of their road trip. The 28-year-old has gone 3-2-1 in January, and he's up to 8-8-2 with a 3.22 GAA and a .910 save percentage through 21 outings overall. Korpisalo and Elvis Merzlikins will likely split the last two games on the trip -- the Blue Jackets play in Vancouver on Friday and Seattle on Saturday.

  • Blue Jackets' Gustav Nyquist: Won't return to Wednesday's game

    Nyquist (upper body) won't finish Wednesday's game versus the Oilers

    Head coach Brad Larsen delivered the update during an interview from the bench during the second period. Nyquist logged just 3:33 of ice time in Wednesday's game, though it's unclear what forced him from the contest. If he misses additional time, Emil Bemstrom could rejoin the lineup in a middle-six role.

  • Blue Jackets' Joonas Korpisalo: Making road start

    Korpisalo will patrol the road crease during Wednesday's matchup with the Oilers, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

    Korpisalo was solid in his last start Monday against the Flames, turning aside 45 of 49 shots, but he still came away with a loss due to insufficient goal support from his teammates. He'll try to secure his eighth win of the season in a rough road matchup with a scorching-hot Edmonton team that's won six straight contests.

  • Blue Jackets' Adam Boqvist: Picks up power-play assist

    Boqvist had a power-play assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames.

    Boqvist earned the secondary helper on a Patrik Laine tally in the second period. Aside from being scratched twice this month, Boqvist has been decent in January with six helpers through 10 contests. The 22-year-old defenseman has seven assists, 20 shots on net, 13 blocked shots, 10 hits and a minus-4 rating through 17 outings overall, though his offense hasn't shown enough to help fantasy managers in most standard formats.

  • Blue Jackets' Erik Gudbranson: Earns helper Monday

    Gudbranson logged an assist and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames.

    Johnny Gaudreau wasn't the only former Flame to make a return to the Saddledome on Monday. Gudbranson had a career year with the Flames last year, then turned that into a four-year contract with the Blue Jackets in the summer. His assist snapped a 17-game point drought. Despite Columbus' poor play as a team, Gudbranson is on a similar scoring rate this season. He has nine points with a minus-20 rating, 88 blocked shots, 84 hits, 61 shots on net and 36 PIM through 46 outings.

  • Blue Jackets' Johnny Gaudreau: Two assists in return to Calgary

    Gaudreau notched a pair of power-play assists, five shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames.

    Gaudreau was at the center of just about everything in his first game back in Calgary since signing with Columbus over the summer. The winger had a pair of assists in a 49-second span in the second period, but his missed penalty shot in the opening frame loomed large as the Blue Jackets came up a goal short. He's produced two goals and six helpers over his last seven contests, and he's up to 46 points, 126 shots on net and a minus-17 rating through 47 contests overall.
