Matt Calvert found himself on the top line Saturday.
The fourth line winger has played well in the first two games of the season so coach John Tortorella moved him off the fourth unit and replaced Boone Jenner on the top line. Calvert's new linemates were Brandon Dubinsky and Cam Atkinson while Jenner skated with Scott Hartnell and Josh Anderson. Alex Wennberg replaced Sam Gagner on the second unit with Brandon Saad and Nick Foligno on his wings. All-in-all, Tortorella is not waiting around for things to change this season and as per usual is being proactive and not reactive. Oct 17 - 7:12 AM

Matt Calvert scored a goal and an assist during Columbus' pre-season finale victory over Pittsburgh.

Calvert is entering his seventh season, and still has yet to reach the 30-point plateau. Until he reaches the 40-point plateau however, we wouldn't pay him much mind as a fantasy asset.

Matt Calvert is going into the 2016-17 campaign as the longest tenured member with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Calvert made his NHL debut with the Blue Jackets in 2010-11 and has gone on to log 282 career games. Jared Boll and Fedor Tyutin had both been with Columbus for longer, but the Blue Jackets bought out their contracts. "We have a lot of older guys from other teams (in the dressing room)," Calvert said. "It’s not like I’m walking around trying to boss those guys around. Is Cam (Atkinson) second? We’ve been chirping Hartsy (Scott Hartnell) about how long we’ve been around the team, even though he’s got 1,100 games, or whatever it is."
