Anisimov has led his forwards in ice time with 18:45, including 3:59 on the powerplay and 0:59 on the kill. On a less positive note, he won just 29% of his faceoffs. His goal was the 80th of his career.

Artem Anisimov is slated to start the season as the third line center but that could change if the Blue Jackets are unable to re-sign Ryan Johansen.

Johansen is a restricted free agent and talks between the two sides are not going well at this time so Anisimov may move up to the second unit. He already gets a boost fantasy-wise as he sees plenty of time on the power play and that will continue in 2014-15. He had 22 goals last season and could hit the 25 goal mark if Johansen misses a significant portion of the season.
