Hartnell has 24 points on the season, but he entered Saturday night’s contest with a four-game streak in which he failed to score a single point.

The fourth line of the Columbus Blue Jackets is currently better than most teams' second line.

The Blue Jackets are so deep that the fourth line of Sam Gagner, Scott Hartnell and Lukas Sedlak are scoring at a tremendous pace and Gagner and Hartnell are seeing plenty of ice time on the power play. Gagner has 14 goals and 28 points, while Hartnell has nine goals and 22 points. Both are plus-11 while Sedlak has three goals and nine points with a plus-eight rating. That is quite a line as only 140 players in the NHL have 20 points. less on average than five per team.

Hartnell opened the scoring in the game and added an assist on Seth Jones' goal just minutes later. He has nine goals and 13 assists this season.

Scott Hartnell scored three goals in a 7-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have been the biggest surprise of the NHL this season, and they are accomplishing this by having consistent production from all of their lineup. The hat trick was the ninth of Hartnell's career, and it puts him up to eight goals on the year. The most impressive part of the hat trick is that he accomplished this feat with just over 10 minutes of action in the contest. Cam Atkinson, Brandan Saad, Boone Jenner, and William Karlsson also scored for the Blue Jackets in the big win.

Scott Hartnell has just six penalty minutes in 24 games this season.

Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella has been happy with the team's discipline in contrast to last season and Hartnell's severe drop in PIM is a reflection of that. But while Hartnell's far more disciplined play is good for Columbus, it has been a negative for fantasy owners in certain leagues. Hartnell has scored five goals and 15 points in 24 contests so he does have some value beyond his PIM generation, but that was traditionally a big part of his appeal to fantasy owners and now it might be a thing of the past.

Scott Hartnell scored two goals in a 10-0 victory versus Montreal Friday night.

Hartnell now has four goals and seven points in nine contests this season. He finished 2015-16 with 49 points and there's a good chance he'll do at least that well this season. The one sticking point is the fact that he's averaged just 12:57 minutes per game so far this season and unless that improves significantly, it's hard to get too excited about his hot start.

Scott Hartnell picked up his second goal of the season in a 3-1 Blue Jackets loss to San Jose on Thursdays.

Hartnell crashed the net hard to bury a rebound with 2:58 left in the third period to give the Jackets some hope but it turned out to be the only goal scored by his club on the night. The rugged winger was also credited with four hits and two blocked shots in over 13 minutes of ice-time. He has two goals and four points in six games now. He's a pretty consistent scorer in this league with 20 plus goals in five of the last six seasons. He's usually underrated in drafts.
