Wennberg now has nine goals and 43 points in 49 games this season. He has seven points in his last four contests.

Alexander Wennberg dropped the gloves early in Friday's game against Calgary.

Wennberg isn't known for his fighting, but he took exception to a hit Matthew Tkachuk delivered to Brandon Saad. "It’s not really my role to be fighting, but Saader took a big hit," Wennberg said. "I felt like I needed to step up. I didn’t make me uncomfortable. It felt like the right thing for me to do. It was a great experience for me to get involved a little bit. It was right in front of our bench. The guys enjoyed it and I think it fired them up a little bit. It was perfect. Couldn’t get any better than that, right?" He also picked up an assist in Columbus' 4-1 victory.

Alexander Wennberg has shown that he is the Blue Jackets number one center.

The Blue Jackets have dealt a couple of good centers in the last 18 months as Artem Anisimov was part of a deal to Chicago and Ryan Johansen was sent to Nashville for Seth Jones. But Wennberg has come into his own and his 15 assists are tied for third best in the NHL at this time. "Alex is a different player this year," linemate Nick Foligno said. "When the game wasn't going his way before, he might have disappeared for the whole game. Now he finds a way to make a difference. That's huge for him. He's really confident in his ability right now. He understands how he has to play, but also that grit and that grind he has to have. He's balancing it very well right now." Wennberg is a must start in pools at this time.

Alexander Wennberg is tied for second place in assists with 13.

He was tied for the lead heading into action on Sunday but Connor McDavid picked one up on the Oilers lone goal against the Rangers to pull one ahead. Wennberg has only one goal but he has been outstanding for the Blue Jackets and the 22-year-old is heading for a career year after picking up 39 points in his final 56 games last year. He should definitely be on your radar and better yet, in your lineup.
