Cam Atkinson notched a goal and an assist in the Blue Jackets’ 4-2 win over the Blues on Saturday night.

Atkinson scored the empty netter and he assisted on the game-tying goal from Boone Jenner with 21 seconds remaining in regulation. Atkinson has points in three consecutive games and a recent hot streak has seen him reach 20 goals and 37 points. Jenner also had a helper. Jack Johnson and William Karlsson picked up the other goals.

Cam Atkinson scored a hat trick in Columbus' 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

Atkinson's first two goals were scored in the first period and he added an empty netter to complete the trifecta. Atkinson is now just two goals away from tying his career-high of 21 which he set last season. The 25-year-old signed a three-year contract extension with the Jackets in March so he should be part of the team for the foreseeable future. Atkinson has 19 goals and 35 points in 70 games this season. Ryan Johanssen and Kevin Connauton also scored for Columbus.

Cam Atkinson's scored for the second game in a row Friday.

Atkinson inked a three-year contract extension on March 2 and finally broke a 13 game goalless drought on Thursday before finding the back of the net once again Friday, this time on the power play. Atkinson has 15 goals and 28 points this season but we cannot recommend him at this time.
Mar 14 - 5:52 AM

Cam Atkinson recorded an assist in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Atkinson has been limited to two points over his last 11 games. He signed a three-year, $10.5 million contract extension on March 2 to avoid becoming a restricted free agent.
Mar 11 - 9:33 AM

Cam Atkinson has agreed to a three-year, $10.5 million contract extension.

Atkinson has 13 goals and 25 points in 58 games in 2014-15. That's a substantial jump from his previous average annual salary of $1.15 million, but that's not surprising given that the 25-year-old has established himself as an important part of the Blue Jackets. He would have been eligible to become a restricted free agent this summer.
Mar 2 - 2:57 PM

According to sources, Chicago is interested in acquiring Cam Atkinson from Columbus.

The Blackhawks would like to bring in some help after losing Patrick Kane for 12 weeks. Atkinson and Arizona's Antoine Vermette appear to be at the top their list.
Feb 27 - 11:14 AM

Cam Atkinson scored his 13th goal of the season Saturday versus the Islanders.

Atkinson has been pretty hot of late with four goals in his last five games and five goals and eight points in nine games. Before that, he had gone 17 games without a goal so Atkinson is worth looking at again in pools. He has 23 points in 50 games but remember what he has done lately.
Feb 15 - 6:54 AM

Cam Atkinson scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 defeat of the Capitals.

A lot more was expected from Atkinson than he has produced to date, as his goal snaps a 17-game stretch without tickling the twine. The fact he registered five shots on goal on Tuesday might be a sign that he's finding his groove again. Fedor Tyutin also picked up a goal and an assist in the win while Ryan Johansen and Mark Letestu added markers of their own.
Jan 27 - 11:21 PM

Cam Atkinson's assist on Saturday was his first point in 12 games.

Atkinson has also gone 15 games without finding the back of the net so it has been quite a slump for the forward. Atkinson has eight goals and 15 points thus far this season and while he is not a good pickup at this time, he is capable of getting hot for a couple of weeks so keep an eye on him.
Jan 18 - 6:43 AM

Cam Atkinson (upper body) will be back in the Blue Jackets' lineup on Tuesday.

Atkinson has eight goals and 14 points in 33 contests this season. Look for Atkinson to play with Matt Calvert and Brandon Dubinsky. That's bad news for Jeremy Morin, who has been bumped from the second to the third line. The return of Atkinson and Mark Letestu has also prompted Columbus to send Michael Chaput and Adam Cracknell to the minors.
Jan 6 - 3:06 PM

Cam Atkinson (upper body) might make his return on Tuesday.

Atkinson has eight goals and 14 points in 33 games in 2014-15. Adam Cracknell has already been put on waivers, so the Blue Jackets have taken steps to free up a roster spot. That being said, Mark Letestu might also return on Tuesday and if both he and Atkinson end up being available, then Alexander Wennberg or Sean Collins could find himself also being sent to the minors.
