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.

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.
Nov 1 - 1:06 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.
Oct 31 - 6:59 PM

Brandon Saad will miss Friday's game because of an illness.

Saad also wasn't available for Thursday's practice. He has three goals and an assist in 10 games this season.

Brandon Saad is dealing with an illness.

Saad didn't practice on Thursday as a result. He has three goals and four points in 10 games in 2015-16. Consider him questionable for Friday's contest.
Oct 29 - 12:41 PM

Brandon Saad has once again been taken off the Blue Jackets' top line.

Saad showed a lot of promise alongside Ryan Johansen and Nick Foligno during the preseason, but with Columbus in a free fall, that unit hasn't lasted. Saad still might end up being reunited with them later, but for now he's on the second line.
Oct 20 - 8:32 AM

Brandon Saad scored a goal in Columbus' 7-3 loss to Ottawa on Wednesday.

The Blue Jackets are off to a 0-4-0 start, but there are some players that have held their own. Saad now has three goals in four contests, although that's bundled with an ugly minus-four rating. The move from Chicago to Columbus should lead to Saad comfortably surpassing his previous career-high of 52 points thanks to his increased role.
Oct 15 - 9:23 AM

After the line was broken up during Saturday's game, Brandon Saad was reunited with Ryan Johansen and Nick Foligno on Monday.

That's great news for Saad because he has the potential to excel on that unit. Saad did find the back of the net on Monday, although it came independent of that line as it was a power-play marker.
Oct 13 - 10:19 AM

Brandon Saad was taken off the first line during Saturday's game.

Scott Hartnell ended up taking Saad's spot alongside Ryan Johansen and Nick Foligno. This likely isn't the last we've seen of Saad, Johansen, and Foligno as a trio, but it's disappointing to see the Blue Jackets already experiment with breaking them up. Saad stands to lose the most if he's taken off that line. He finished Saturday's contest alongside William Karlson and Cam Atkinson.
Oct 12 - 8:22 AM

Brandon Saad scored a goal in Friday's 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

The goal was Saad's first as a member of the Blue Jackets. The 22-year-old snuck in from the point on the power play and beat Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist with a wrist shot. The Blue Jackets held a 2-1 lead with under four minutes remaining when New York scored three unanswered goals. Saad finished the game with a minus-2 rating and four shots on goal in 19:37 of ice time.
Oct 9 - 10:14 PM

The Blue Jackets’ top line torched the Predators on Saturday night, accounting for four of the team’s seven goals in the 7-1 preseason win.

If that’s not enough, the trio of Brandon Saad (two goals, assist), Nick Foligno (two goals, two assists) and Ryan Johansen (four assists) recorded a combined 11 points. Too bad it doesn’t count. It is likely to be a precursor to what’s to come, though. The Blue Jackets are a legitimate threat in the Eastern Conference, and it starts with the Saad addition and this line. Brandon Dubinsky (goal, assist), Rene Bourque (goal, assist) and Jared Boll had the other goals.

Brandon Saad, Ryan Johansen, and Nick Foligno have been dominate in the preseason.

In two exhibition games, that line has combined for six goals and 14 points. Obviously you can't read too much into that given the nature of preseason contests, but the Saad-Johansen-Foligno line could prove to be one of the most effective units this season. That would be particularly beneficial for Saad, who had 52 points with Chicago last season.
Sep 30 - 11:00 AM

Brandon Saad scored two goals and two assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Nashville Predators.

It was quite the performance from Saad, who had four root canals done less than a week ago. The 22-year-old picked up his assists in the first and second periods when he set up goals from Ryan Johansen and Nick Foligno. He added goals of his own in the second and third periods to put the game out of reach. Scott Hartnell also scored for the Jackets. Columbus will open their season on October 9th when they host the New York Rangers.
