Feb 27 - 12:59 PM

Matt Calvert recorded his 10th goal of the season, however the Blue Jackets dropped a 4-2 decision to Buffalo on Tuesday.

This marks the second time in his career that Calvert has reached double-digit goals, but he stands an excellent chance of surpassing his career-best of 11. Kevin Connauton was the only goal scorer for the Jackets in the loss.
Feb 24 - 11:03 PM

Matt Calvert notched a pair of goals for the Blue Jackets on Tuesday as they outscored the Flyers 5-2.

Calvert's goals give him nine on the season, but he's not worthy of a roster slot in most leagues. Ryan Johansen and Brandon Dubinsky each contributed a goal and an assist in the victory while James Wisniewski also picked up his seventh of the campaign in the win.
Feb 17 - 9:56 PM

Matt Calvert (illness) should be back in the lineup on Friday.

Calvert was able to take part in Wednesday and Thursday's practices after missing two games. He's projected to play on the fourth line, which would push Jordan Leopold out of the lineup.
Feb 6 - 9:41 AM

Matt Calvert (illness) took part in Wednesday's practice.

Calvert will probably be back in the Blue Jackets' lineup on Friday after missing two straight games. Jordan Leopold might stop taking shifts as a fourth line winger as a result.
Feb 5 - 9:21 AM

Matt Calvert (illness) didn't skate on Monday.

There's a fair chance that Calvert will miss his second straight game on Tuesday. If that's the case then Jordan Leopold will likely occupy his spot on the fourth line.
Feb 3 - 8:47 AM

Matt Calvert missed Saturday's game with an illness.

Calvert has been ill for about a month now and had to switch anti-biotics as the first batch did not work. He suffered a setback on Saturday and was unable to go as he was coughing too much. Consider him day-to-day. He has six goals and 12 points in 38 games this season.
Feb 1 - 7:16 AM

Matt Calvert will miss Saturday's game against Tampa Bay with an illness.

Which illness has Calvert down is still unknown, but it doesn't appear to be serious. Through 38 games this season Calvert has six goals, 12 points, 50 shots, and 60 hits.
Jan 31 - 7:32 PM

Matt Calvert scored twice for the Blue Jackets in a 3-1 win over Boston Saturday.

It was a tough night for Calvert as he had to go to the locker room on occasion as he was suffering from the stomach flu. In addition, he took an elbow from Carl Soderberg and had to be checked out in the quiet room. That he came back from all that and scored the winner and insurance goal was quite a feat. Calvert now has six goals and 12 points in 33 games this season.
Jan 18 - 6:50 AM

Matt Calvert will return to the Blue Jackets' lineup against the New York Rangers on Friday night.

The 25 year old winger has just four goals, ten points, 16 PIMs, 43 shots on goal, and 56 hits through 32 games so far this season.
Jan 16 - 7:07 PM

Matt Calvert was moved from the second line to the fourth unit part way through Friday's game in Toronto.

Coach Todd Richards was not happy with the play of Calvert and switched Jeremy Morin to the second line and replaced Morin on the fourth line with Calvert who finished the game playing alongside Jared Boll and Mark Letestu. Calvert only has four goals and 10 points in 30 games so it's hard to see why he would be on your fantasy squad.
Jan 10 - 8:28 AM

Matt Calvert scored a goal in Columbus' 2-1 win against Florida.

Calvert now has three goals and four points in 15 games this season. As those numbers imply, he's not expected to have much fantasy value in standard leagues this season.

Matt Calvert was a minus-4 in Columbus' 5-0 loss to Vancouver on Friday night.

All but four of Columbus' skaters finished with a minus rating tonight. The Blue Jackets fired 31 shots at Vancouver goalie Ryan Miller, but they were unable to sneak one by him. The Jackets have now lost five consecutive games.

Matt Calvert will be scratched Tuesday night against Detroit.

Jack Skille will also join him in the press box as they recover from injuries. With just five points between the two of them and a lineup plagued by injury, it's no wonder why Coach Richards is slow to re-insert them back into the lineup.
