Gabriel Carlsson (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve.

Carlsson will be eligible to come off IR on Saturday, Oct. 21 and he is currently listed as day-to-day. He suffered an upper-body injury on Friday against the Rangers.
Oct 16 - 11:01 AM

Markus Nutivaara has been called up by Columbus.

Nutivaara played in 66 games with the Blue Jackets last season and he contributed seven points along with a plus-7 rating. He is expected to compete with Scott Harrington for playing time with Gabriel Carlsson on the shelf due to an injury.

Artemi Panarin picked up three assists for the second time this season on Saturday.

For everyone who thought Panarin's point totals would drop significantly in Columbus after he was traded from Chicago in the offseason, he is proving his doubters wrong. Panarin is up to seven points in five games thus far and has been the Jackets best offensive player. He should get 70-80 points once again this season barring injury.
Oct 16 - 7:49 AM

David Savard had a goal and an assist Saturday in the Blue Jackets 5-4 win over Minnesota.

It was the defenseman's first two points of the season. Savard should get 20-25 points per season. If you look up his stats and are enthralled by the 36 points he picked up in 2014-15, you are likely wasting a spot on your blueline if you are waiting for him to do it again.
Oct 15 - 7:50 AM

Scott Harrington played in his first game of the season Saturday.

The defenseman took over from the injured Gabriel Carlsson. He played only 11:07 with no time on the power play. Harrington had a goal and three points in 22 games last season so don't expect anything fantasy-wise this season.

Sergei Bobrovsky recorded 17 saves on 21 shots as the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the Minnesota Wild 5-4 in overtime on Saturday night.

That's back-to-back wins in back-to-back nights for Bobrovsky, who now sports a 4-0-0 record to start the season. Bobrovsky continues to be one of the NHL's top goaltenders and sports a 1.47 goals-against average and a .952 save percentage.

Alexander Wennberg scored the overtime winner as the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the Minnesota Wild 5-4 on Saturday night.

The overtime winner was rather fluky, with Artemi Panarin's shot bouncing off Dubnyk before being deflected off of Wennberg's belly and into the net. He also added an assist in the win, bringing his season totals to a goal and four assists in five games. It is not irrational to expect the Swede to top 65 points this season.
Oct 14 - 11:14 PM

Jordan Schroeder was listed as a healthy scratch in advance of Saturday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

Schroder was hurt during the preseason and was sent to the Blue Jackets' minor league affiliate for a conditioning stint. He had 13 points in 37 games last year.

Sergei Bobrovsky will get the start against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.

Many expected Joonas Korpisalo to start tonight, but it will indeed be Bobrovsky, who's been terrific this season. He has a 3-0-0 record with a 0.65 goals-against-average and a .981 save percentage this season.
Oct 14 - 6:39 PM

Joonas Korpisalo is the probable starter Saturday night against Minnesota.

Sergei Bobrovsky started and won Friday night's contest against the Rangers so there is a very good chance that Korpisalo will get the call in the second game of a back-to-back situation. Korpisalo is coming off a 24-save, 5-1 loss to Chicago in his only game action this season.
Oct 14 - 9:18 AM

Gabriel Carlsson left Friday night's 3-1 victory over the Rangers in the third period and did not return.

Carlsson sustained an upper-body injury and was not able to continue to play. For now consider him day-to-day.
Oct 14 - 9:14 AM

Artemi Panarin scored a goal in Columbus' 3-1 win over the New York Rangers on Friday night.

Panarin picked up the puck in his own end and skated all the way into New York's zone before ripping a wrist shot by Henrik Lundqvist. The goal was his first as a member of the Blue Jackets. Panarin finished the game with a plus-2 rating and six shots on goal in 18:09 of ice time. He has four points in four games this season.
Oct 13 - 10:19 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky allowed one goal on 38 shots in Friday's 3-1 win over the New York Rangers.

Bobrovsky is now a perfect 3-0-0 this season and he's given up one goal or less in each of those games. He allowed the game's first goal late in the first period, but he shut the door the rest of the way. Bobrovsky now owns an incredible 0.65 goals-against-average and a .981 save percentage this season. He'll continue to be one of the top three fantasy goalies in the league.
Oct 13 - 9:52 PM

Seth Jones scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-1 win over the New York Rangers.

Jones' goal tied the game at one with less than one minute remaining in the second frame. He then picked up the primary assist on Artemi Panarin's third period goal. Jones finished the game with a plus-1 rating, one shot on goal and blocked shot in 24:33 of ice time. He has one goal and two assists in four games this season. Jones will have strong fantasy value in most standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 13 - 9:42 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky will get the start in Friday's game against the New York Rangers.

Bobrovsky has a perfect 2-0-0 record this season and he's given up just a single goal during those contests. He'll be a strong fantasy option tonight and going forward.
