Cam Atkinson found the back of the net in Columbus' 5-3 loss to Vancouver.

It was Atkinson's second goal in his last three games. Overall this season he has four goals and nine points in 15 contests. That puts him on pace for 49 points, which would be a new career-high for him. It's certainly not unrealistic for him to reach that mark though.

I think (Atkinson) –and there are other people too – that we need more out of. We just need him to be better." Atkinson has one goal and two assists in six games this year.

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

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 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.
