Scott Hartnell got four minutes in penalties for going after Jonathan Quick on Thursday.

It's been a good fantasy road trip for Hartnell in California as he had a goal and an assist Tuesday against the Sharks and scored both goals last night versus the Ducks. On Thursday he took a double minor (and another double minor on Friday) when he went after the Kings goalie. "The whistle wasn’t gone, and I kind of saw the puck," Hartnell said, grinning. "He tried a tomahawk swing behind the net there. Some people in this league think they shouldn’t be touched, and I think he’s probably earned that right with the way he’s won a couple of (Stanley) Cups and been the man out here in LA for a while now." Hartnell has seven goals and 11 points in 15 games with 15 penalty minutes. He is a must-start in traditional pools.

Scott Hartnell said that new Columbus coach John Tortorella is a 'no nonsense' coach.

"If you play the right way, you’re going to get rewarded with ice time, and there were some examples of that in his first game," Hartnell said. "But we need to have four lines going. We need to have six ‘D,’ and our goalies need to play great to keep us in games." The Blue Jackets picked up their first win of the season Saturday after dropping their first eight. Hartnell has two goals and four points in nine games but has a minus-seven rating. He should be a favorite of Tortorella as he plays the game hard.

Scott Hartnell was on the top line by the time Saturday's contest ended.

Hartnell was playing alongside Ryan Johansen and Nick Folingo. It's not clear if that trio will be on the ice together on Monday, but it wouldn't be shocking to see Columbus to attempt that kind of adjustment after losing its first two games.

Scott Hartnell has been practicing on the Blue Jackets' third line.

Of course it's still the preseason so it's too early to say if that's actually where Hartnell will end up. Still, the Blue Jackets are getting fairly deep offensively and we wouldn't rule out the possibility of Hartnell's role with the team suffering as a result. Hartnell did bounce around a fair amount last season, but his most common linemate in 5-on-5 play last season was still Ryan Johanseon.
