Maksim Mayorov scored his first goal of the season in the Blue Jackets 4-2 loss to Minnesota.

Mayorov has the skill to be a top six forward, but his skating and defensive play have kept him back till now. While neither are fully remedied, they are good enough for Mayorov to make in impact in his first full season in the NHL. Keep him flagged in your leagues waiver wire.

Maksim Mayorov is close to cracking the Columbus lineup.

Mayorov is a natural goal scorer but he has worked hard on his skating and defensive play to round out his game. "For me to make the team, I have to play good defensively," Mayorov said. "The goals are going to come. If I play well and show them I can do it here, I will get a chance to move higher in the lineup. But for now, I know what they want from me." Mayorov has the offensive talent to become a top-six forward but at age 22, he'll just be happy to make the Blue Jackets squad. Look for a 15 goal, 30 point season from the Russian.

Peter Mannino and Chris Mason were the goaltenders of record for Winnipeg while Columbus split the work between Mark Dekanich and Paul Dainton.

Despite a recent report from a Russian source indicating the contrary, both the Columbus Blue Jackets and the agent for Maxim Mayorov are confirming that the player has not signed a contract with Ak Bars Kazan of the KHL.

"There's nothing to this," said Roliie Hedges, Mayorov's agent. "He's just training with them; he's not playing there. I talked to him yesterday. Max knows this is the best chance he's had to make the (Blue Jackets). When players are over in Russia, they have to train; and the best way to train is with a Russian club team. He wants to be ready this year." With the bottom six forwards on the Jackets largely unsettled, Mayorov stands as good a chance as any to find a home in the NHL this season.

Coach Scott Arniel was impressed with Maxim Mayorov during his recent five-game stint with Columbus.

Mayorov had a goal in five games and was solid defensively. "He's proven to himself he can play at this level," Arniel said. "Max has always wondered what he is - is he a goal scorer or a checker? He knows clearly now what we want him to be next year. He's going to be battling for a bottom-six forward spot. He played that role well for us." He's worth keeping an eye on during training camp.

Maxim Mayorov will play on the fourth line on Saturday.

Mayorov was a top six forward on Thursday before a defensive error in the second period put him on the bench for the rest of the game. "(Coach)Claude (Noel) just told me to improve the details," Mayorov said. "No excuses. I have to play way better." Mayorov has some offensive upside, but is likely a third line player at best in the foreseeable future.

Maxim Mayorov was benched in the second period after a defensive error and did not return.

Mayorov only played 3:48 minutes as he missed his check in the second period, giving Atlanta an odd man advantage on the play. It looks like he could be back in the minors before the weekend. Mayorov has some offensive upside but is likely going to end up a third line player in the NHL if he is able to stick.
