Brandon Saad has three goals in his last two games.
That's a nice way for Saad to head into the All-Star break. He'll be the Blue Jackets' representative at the All-Star Game and he's certainly worthy of that role given that he leads the team with 19 goals and 35 points in 50 contests. Not a lot has gone right for Columbus in 2015-16, but at least Saad has largely lived up to their hopes after they acquired him from Chicago over the summer. Jan 27 - 8:51 AM

Brandon Saad recorded two goals in the Blue Jackets’ 5-4 shootout win against the Capitals on Saturday night.

If you like offense, this game was for you. The Blue Jackets put together a strong effort against one of the best teams in the game, with Saad’s second goal tying it up with 1:08 left in regulation. He has heated up after a slow start, now with six of his six goals and 11 of his 29 points coming during a seven-game point streak. Jack Johnson enjoyed a fine night as well, picking up two goals and an assist.

Brandon Saad recorded a goal and an assist in a 3-2 loss on Sunday to the Panthers.

Saad now has seven points in his last five games. He is now on pace for 55 points which would mark a new career high. He finished the contest with one goal, one assist, minus-1, and four shots on goal.

Brandon Saad had an assist in a 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Monday.

Brandon Saad stayed hot by picking up yet another goal, this time in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Flyers.

He now has goals in consecutive games, plus five points over his last five games. His numbers are climbing back up towards the top-six money he was given over the summer with 12 goals and 22 points in 34 games.

Brandon Saad picked up a trio of points in Thursday's 7-5 win over Arizona.

A goal and two assists to go along with four shots and a block over 17 minutes of work, not too shabby for the big summer's acquisition. He now has 11 goals and 21 points in 33 games so far, and this could be the catalyst he needs to be the first line winger Columbus thought they were getting.

Brandon Saad potted a goal in the Blue Jackets’ 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders on Saturday night.

Saad was a fourth-liner a few games ago, but Saturday night he played 18:48 and had four shots on goal. Saad has 10 goals and 18 points this year, certainly not up to expectations. Cam Atkinson scored the other goal. We think you should stick with Saad despite this slow start.

Brandon Saad practiced on the Blue Jackets' top line on Wednesday.

Saad had spent a couple games on the fourth line, but as suspected, that arrangement was temporary. He has nine goals and 17 points in 28 games this season. His new projected linemates are Ryan Johansen and Boone Jenner.

In a continuation from Saturday's game, Brandon Saad was skating on the fourth line during Monday's practice.

It looks like Saad is likely to be stuck in that role for Tuesday's contest. This is likely just a temporary move, but it still obviously isn't good for his fantasy value. He has nine goals and 16 points in 27 contests in 2015-16.

Brandon Saad found himself on the fourth line Saturday.

Saad was held pointless yet again and has only one assist in his last six games. His overall stats of nine goals and 16 points in 27 games is good enough but he has not found the back of the net since November 17 when he potted two against St. Louis. Consider benching him in the short term.

Brandon Saad's three game points streak came to an end on Thursday night when the Jackets were shut out by the Senators.

Saad has 13 points in 19 games so far in his first season with Columbus. Saad did make it onto the scoresheet with two minor penalties in the game.
Fri, Nov 20, 2015 01:03:00 AM

Brandon Saad scored two goals in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Saad gave the Jackets their first lead of the game in the second period and he also added an empty netter to ice the game. The 23-year-old extends his goal scoring streak to three games in the process, as he's found the back of the net four times during that span. Saad has nine goals and 13 points in 18 games this season. He's currently on pace to score 41 goals this season.

Brandon Saad had a goal and an assist in Friday's 2-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Saad did all his damage in the second period of the game. He collected the primary assist on Scott Hartnell's goal and added one of his own just 1:41 later. Saad has six goals and 10 points this season.
Fri, Nov 13, 2015 10:29:00 PM

Brandon Saad scored in his return to the Blue Jackets' lineup on Saturday.

Unfortunately, Columbus was already down 3-0 and they would go on to lose 3-2. The point snapped a five-game point drought, add one more since he last scored a goal. On the season he has four goals and five points. Ouch.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 01:06:00 AM

Brandon Saad will be back in the Blue Jackets' lineup against the Jets on Saturday.

Saad is off to a less-than-stellar start so far with just three goals and four points through 10 games. While he does have 25 shots thus far, he's not contributing in other ways either. Which further limits his potential value.
