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.

Murray returned to the Columbus lineup for the first time since suffering an ankle injury March 18.

Although the Blue Jackets have endured a disappointing season, Scott Hartnell has enjoyed his first season in Columbus.

The Philadelphia Flyers decision to trade Hartnell was initially stinging and by his own admission, it took him a while to get over it. "But these guys here did a great job of taking me in, making me feel at home," Hartnell said. "It's been a fun season. Not winning makes it tough, but everything else has been good. I like it here." Columbus' main issue this season has been injuries, so with some luck, they could bounce back in 2015-16 by competing for a playoff spot.
