Michael Chaput has played in 39 career NHL games without a goal.

Chaput has recorded two assists in his last three contests and got some good scoring chances recently, but it's fair to say he doesn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues. For his part, Chaput isn't worried about his lack of an NHL goal as "it's a matter of time."

The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled Michael Chaput from the minors.

Chaput was recalled after the Blue Jackets sent him to the minors just 10 days ago to give him some extra playing time. He had only two assists in 18 NHL games this season after picking up only one in 17 games last season. He sure isn't a scoring threat at this stage of his NHL career.

The Blue Jackets sent Michael Chaput to the minors, in part, so that he could continue to play regularly.

With Columbus getting some forwards back from the sidelines, keeping Chaput would have likely meant having him spend games in the press box. "The whole idea of was that we didn't want Michael Chaput sitting in the stands when he could be playing," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. "We want him out on the ice, gaining that experience. He'll go to Springfield and be playing on the weekend and then we'll see."

It looks like Michael Chaput will make the opening night roster of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Chaput played in seven of eight pre-season games and had two goals, two assists and was a plus-four as well as scoring a couple of game winners. The Blue Jackets are struggling up the middle with Ryan Johansen a restricted free agent and the contract talks apparently going nowhere, as well as having Boone Jenner out with an injury. Chaput had 45 points in 55 AHL games last season but had only one helper in 17 NHL games.

Michael Chaput is taking advantage of his opportunity to impress with Ryan Johansen not in camp.

Chaput will play once again on Saturday and it will be his fourth pre-season game, the most on the Blue Jackets. He had 45 points in 55 AHL games last season but struggled at the NHL level with only one assist in 17 games. He will be a lot better this season.
