The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Lauri Korpikoski is likely to start on the third line Sunday.
Korpikoski will draw into the lineup for the first time in the playoffs as Matt Calvert will sit out a one game suspension. It will be the first playoff game of the season for Korpikoski who had no points for Columbus in nine regular season games after he was acquired from Dallas at the trade deadline. The winger had eight goals and 20 points in 60 games for the Stars so he has some offensive talent. Sun, Apr 16, 2017 08:07:00 AM

Lauri Korpikoski is projected to be scratched against the Jets on Thursday.

Unfortunately, Korpikoski has seen just eight games of action with the Blue Jackets, and he's yet to pick up his any points. Suffice it to say, he has no fantasy value.

Lauri Korpikoski and Scott Harrington will be scratched against the Sabres on Tuesday.

Mark it seven games in a row now for Korpikoski in the press box. It would seem that coach John Tortorella doesn't think he holds much value to the squad.

Lauri Korpikoski will remain a healthy scratch on Wednesday as Columbus hosts Toronto.

Mark it four games in a row now that the veteran acquisition will sit out. Until he can get into the lineup consistently, his already marginal fantasy value takes a significant hit.

Coach John Tortorella elected to keep both Lauri Korpikoski and Markus Nutivaara out of the lineup for Sunday's match with the Devils.

Lauri Korpikoski is projected to make his Blue Jackets debut on Thursday.

Columbus acquired Korpikoski at the trade deadline in exchange for Dallas Heatherington. Korpikoski had six goals and 20 points in 60 contests with the Stars in 2016-17. How he fits into the lineup should be revealed in Thursday's morning skate, but he will likely slot into the third or fourth line.

Columbus acquired Lauri Korpikoski from Dallas in exchange for Dallas Heatherington just ahead of Wednesday's trade deadline.

Through 60 games this season with Dallas the veteran forward has posted eight goals and 20 points along with 32 blocks and 34 hits. He's a classic bottom-six forward who helps out on the penalty kill, so his fantasy value is limited.

Lauri Korpikoski and Jiri Hudler will be scratched against the Wild on Thursday.

As a depth forward, Korpikoski has been excellent for the Stars thus far. Through 56 games he has posted seven goals and 19 points along with 28 blocks and 31 hits. Hudler meanwhile has seven points in 24 games to his credit.

Lauri Korpikoski doesn't have any fantasy value, but coach Lindy Ruff appreciates having him on the roster.

"Here's a guy that nine times out of 10 will go out and play the game the right way, get in the right place," Ruff said. "He's a bigger body (6-1, 193) that can kill penalties. We can use him in tougher defensive situations, where if somebody's been struggling, you can put him on the ice. He's an all-around player." He contributed his 10th point in 34 games Friday against Los Angeles, with an assist. Korpikoski hasn't scored a goal since he scored three in a row from Nov. 10 to Nov. 13.

Lauri Korpikoski and Patri Nemeth will be scratched against Chicago on Sunday.

The veteran winger has four goals and nine points in 29 games thus far. Unfortunately that's not quite enough to justify a spot on your roster.
