Josh Anderson delivered a game-high eight hits on Saturday.

He was playing in his second career NHL game. He has 11 points and 56 penalty minutes in 37 AHL contests in 2014-15, but don't expect him to do much offensively with the Blue Jackets in the short term. "It's not that difficult if you're a big guy to get to the net in juniors, or even in the AHL," Anderson said. "But that was the one thing that really stood out (in his debut on Friday vs. the New York Rangers.) The push-back is really something. The guys are so strong, you can feel it. It's really hard to find space right there. They make you pay. So I have to get used to that."

Fellow Columbus prospects Marko Dano and Kerby Rychel each finished the four-game tournament with three goals and six points. Oliver Bjorkstrand also had four goals and two assists for Columbus. Ryan Johansen is still a restricted free agent, which might cause some of the Jackets' prospects might play bigger roles in the preseason than they were originally penciled in for.
