Brandon Dubinsky has only one assist in seven games.

Not only he is having trouble in the offensive zone but he is also a minus-eight this season. The center had 48 points but was a minus-16 last season so while he should start scoring, a poor plus/minus will be nothing new to Dubinsky. Have some doubts if you are thinking of putting him into your lineup.

Brandon Dubinsky is pointless and has a minus-six rating after only two games.

His second game was better than his first as he was minus-five against the Bruins in the Blue Jackets seasonal debut. Dubinsky had 48 points and a minus-16 rating last season so it's not like this is new to him. He should bounce back and get 45-50 points but will have huge trouble being a plus-player this season in Columbus.

We're one game into the season and Brandon Dubinsky has an ugly minus-five rating.

That's the worst rating Dubinsky has ever been charged with for a single game and it came during Columbus' 6-3 loss to the Boston Bruins on Thursday. "I’m disappointed in myself right now," Dubinsky said. "They pressure hard, they have some good players. That top line played well for them. We weren’t able to create the puck time and the forecheck – my line especially – that we needed. We were one and done and then chasing them." He had 48 points and a minus-16 rating in 75 games last season.

Brandon Dubinsky scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 3-2 OT win over Nashville.

Dubinsky scored the OT winner at the 2:49 mark of the extra frame. He also assisted on Paul Bittner's game-tying goal with just over four minutes remaining. Dubinsky finished the game with a plus-2 rating, three shots on goal and two hits in over 20 minutes of ice time. The 30-year-old is coming off a 17-goal, 48-point season in 2015-16.

Brandon Dubinsky scored two goals in the Columbus Blue Jackets' 5-1 rout of the Maple Leafs in Toronto Wednesday night.

The game was the final one this season at home for the woeful Maple Leafs, who actually took a 1-0 lead Wednesday on a shorthanded goal early in the first period. The Blue Jackets, however, took over the game shortly thereafter with five unanswered goals. Dubinsky's goals were his 16th and 17th of the season. Brandon Saad knocked in his 29th goal of the season and also posted his 21st assist of the season. Matt Calvert scored his ninth goal of the season and assisted on both Dubinsky goals to bring his assist total to 13. Oliver Bjorkstand also had a good night with a goal (fourth) and an assist (third). Cam Atkinson picked up two assists, his 24th and 25th of the season.
Apr 6 - 9:48 PM

Columbus experimented with using Brandon Dubinsky as a winger, but that phase passed very quickly.

Dubinsky was on the wing for a single period on Thursday and Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella didn't like the result. "I don’t think he was around the puck enough at wing," Tortorella explained. Consequently, Dubinsky will be back at center on Saturday.
