Justin Falk will remain in the Blue Jackets lineup Wednesday night against Toronto.

With Ryan Murray returning from injury, the Blue Jackets will elect to scratch Kevin Connauton and not Justin Falk. Falk was paired with Dalton Prout during Wednesday’s morning skate and should pair up with him versus Toronto. Falk has scored a goal and an assist in 17 games this year.

Justin Falk will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Detroit.

Defenseman Ryan Murray has been deemed healthy enough to return, but the Jackets have decided not to inset him into their lineup tonight.
Mar 12 - 7:42 PM

Justin Falk is a healthy scratch is Tuesday's game against Carolina.

Falk was acquired from Minnesota on March 2nd and has two points in three games since joining the Jackets. David Clarkson and Nick Foligno (illness) are also out on Tuesday.
Mar 10 - 7:13 PM

Justin Falk had a goal and an assist for the Columbus Blue Jackets Friday.

It was Falk's first two points of the season in only his second game for the Blue Jackets as he was dealt from Minnesota at the trade deadline after playing in only 13 games for the Wild. Falk's goal was his second in his career, the first one coming 89 games ago. We cannot recommend him at this time but it was a nice second game as a Jacket for the 26-year-old blueliner.
Mar 7 - 7:03 AM

Justin Falk has been dealt to Columbus, along with a fifth-round pick, for Jordan Leopold.

He has skated in 13 games with Minnesota this season and 37 contests with the team's AHL affiliate in Iowa. Falk doesn't have any fantasy value.
Mar 2 - 2:27 PM

Justin Falk (upper body) has been taken off of the injured reserve list.

Falk has been placed on waivers though and he's expected to head to the minors if he clears. He has no points and seven penalty minutes in 13 games with Minnesota in 2014-15.
Jan 21 - 12:16 PM

Minnesota has placed Justin Falk (upper body) on injured reserve.

He sustained an upper-body injury on Tuesday against Pittsburgh, so he will be sidelined for at least a week.
Jan 14 - 5:55 PM

Justin Falk suffered an upper-body injury that is expected to keep him on the shelf for Thursday's game at Buffalo.

He didn't practice Wednesday after he played just 1:49 of ice time in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to Pittsburgh. If Ryan Suter gets suspended then the Wild will have to bring up a defenseman.
Jan 14 - 4:32 PM

Justin Falk has been called up by Minnesota.

Nate Prosser is expected to miss Tuesday's game due to an illness, so Falk will presumably fill the void. Falk has four points and 26 penalty minutes in 21 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Jan 6 - 2:13 PM

The Wild have re-assigned Justin Falk to Iowa of the AHL.

He wasn't in Minnesota for long. No matter from a fantasy perspective as Falk has no value.
