Brandon Dubinsky feels that a full summer of training will help him going into the 2018-19 campaign.
Dubinsky was limited last off-season after he underwent wrist surgery. He wants to get faster over the summer. Columbus GM Jarmo Kekalainen expects Dubinsky to play with a chip on his shoulder after he was handed a reduced role in 2017-18. "I'm sure he's pissed off right now. I hope he is. I know that he is," said Kekalainen. "He wants to be better. He wants to have a bounce-back year, and I think I'm 100 percent sure he will." Dubinsky produced just six goals and 16 points in 62 games last season. May 15 - 11:25 AM

Brandon Dubinsky is dealing with an illness.

Mar 30 - 4:48 PM

Brandon Dubinsky is still in coach John Tortorella's doghouse.

The center was a healthy scratch for two games before returning to the lineup Saturday as Lukas Sedlak was injured. But Dubinsky played only 5:59 and only one shift in the third and has now been unable to get a point in his last 18 games. With five goals and 15 points this season, Dubinsky is a non-factor in fantasy as well as on the ice.
Mar 26 - 6:47 AM

Brandon Dubinsky will draw back into the Columbus lineup Saturday.

Dubinsky has been a healthy scratch the last two games but will regain his spot in the lineup with Lukas Sedlak out after he was hit in the head with the puck Thursday. Dubinsky has gone 17 games without a point and the chippy player will likely be going 100 miles-per-hour in an attempt to show coach John Tortorella that he belongs back in the lineup. He has five goals and 15 points in 55 games this season.
Mar 24 - 7:49 AM

Brandon Dubinsky will be a healthy scratch Tuesday night against the Rangers.

Feb 6 - 10:07 PM

Brandon Dubinsky has been activated from injured reserve.

Coach John Tortorella has confirmed that Dubinsky will be back in the lineup on Tuesday night. He has missed the past 18 games because of a fractured orbital bone. Dubinsky has chipped three goals, 12 points and 19 penalty minutes in 31 matches this campaign.
Jan 30 - 12:07 PM

Brandon Dubinsky (fractured orbital bone) considers himself very close to returning.

Dubinsky hopes to make his return on Tuesday, but if that doesn't happen then he said there's a "1,000 percent" chance he'll make his return on Friday instead. He last played on Dec. 12 due to the injury. When he does return, he's projected to play on the third line with Matt Calvert and Oliver Bjorkstrand.
Jan 30 - 9:25 AM

Brandon Dubinsky (fractured orbital bone) skated on Monday at practice.

Dubinsky skated on the third line between Matt Calvert and Oliver Bjorkstrand. He has been out of action since Dec. 12, but this is an encouraging sign that a return could be very close.
Jan 29 - 2:22 PM

Brandon Dubinsky, who is sidelined with a fractured orbital bone, is no longer with the Blue Jackets on their road trip.

Dubinsky's agent, Kurt Overhardt, said that his client temporarily parted ways with the Blue Jackets due to "medical issues" and he'll rejoin them after the All-Star break. Dubinsky had appeared to be close to returning and was practicing with the club, so the decision for him to leave now seemed odd. There was also a report from The Athletic that he left due to "ongoing personal issues," but Overhardt rejected that report.
Jan 24 - 12:23 PM

Brandon Dubinsky (fractured orbital bone) was on the ice Saturday.

He worked out with a couple of other injured Blue Jackets before the rest of the team took to the ice. Dubinsky should be out at least another few weeks as his diagnosis when injured on December 12 was six-eight weeks. He has three goals and 12 points in 31 games and does add penalty minutes to his totals when healthy.
Jan 7 - 8:21 AM

Brandon Dubinsky, who has a fractured orbital bone, has been moved to the injured reserve list.

That makes sense given that Dubinsky will miss the next six-to-eight weeks. The good news in all of this is that Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen said that Dubinsky's long-term vision hasn't been impacted by this injury.
