Seth Jones registered an assist in a 2-1 win against Calgary Friday night.

That gives Jones seven assists in 13 games since he was acquired by Columbus. He has 18 points in 53 contests overall.
Feb 6 - 4:31 AM

Jack Johnson was credited with six blocked shots in Columbus' 2-1 win over Calgary Friday night.

Johnson's efforts didn't go unnoticed by Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella. "I watched Jack Johnson, when we're killing the penalty there in the third period, make two huge blocks," the bench boss said. Johnson has been limited to 14 points in 52 contests this season, but he's also second on the team with 88 blocks.
Feb 6 - 4:30 AM

Joonas Korpisalo will face Calgary on Friday night.

Korpisalo does have 25:20 of experience against the Flames this season, and he turned away 12 of 14 shots. Overall this season, the rookie netminder has posted a 6-6-2 record with 36 goals against and a .916 save percentage.
Feb 5 - 7:54 PM

Jared Boll and Justin Falk will be scratched Friday night against Calgary.

Unfortunately there isn't a lick of fantasy value between either player. Boll has seen just 20 games this season and has 30 PIMs and 37 hits to his credit. Neither appear to have much of a rotation with Coach John Tortorella.
Feb 5 - 7:21 PM

As luck would have it, Sonny Milano will return AHL Lake Erie's lineup.

Milano has missed the last three weeks due to an upper body injury. He's had a good season for Lake Erie, posting five goals and 14 points in 25 games as a 19-year-old.
Feb 5 - 6:45 PM

Scott Hartnell scored a goal in Columbus' 2-1 shootout win against Vancouver Thursday night.

That extended Hartnell's point streak to four games. Ryan Murray and Cam Atkinson assisted on Hartnell's goal.
Feb 5 - 10:44 AM

Joonas Korpisalo turned aside 37 of 38 shots in a 2-1 shootout victory over Vancouver.

Korpisalo has now won three of his last four starts, allowing two or fewer goals in each of those wins. He has a 2.77 GAA and .916 save percentage in 14 contests this season.
Feb 5 - 10:42 AM

Justin Falk and Jared Boll will serve as the healthy scratches in Thursday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Falk has no goals and four assists in 20 games this season. The 27-year-old managed to get into the Jackets' lineup in each of the previous four games. Boll has no points and a minus-4 rating in 20 games.

Joonas Korpisalo will be Columbus' starter on Thursday.

Korpisalo allowed five goals on 30 shots against Edmonton on Tuesday, but he had won his previous two starts. He now has a 2.93 GAA and .910 save percentage in 13 contests this season.
Feb 4 - 4:42 PM

Sonny Milano, who has been attempting to recover from an upper-body injury, has suffered a setback.

Milano is in his first full season with AHL Lake Erie, but he's been limited to 25 games and hasn't played since Jan. 13. It's certainly unfortunate, especially seeing as he's one of the Blue Jackets' top prospects after being taken with the 16th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Feb 4 - 3:09 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) isn't close to returning to the Columbus Blue Jackets' lineup.

Don't be surprised if Bobrovsky is out for at least another month. This is the third time that Bobrovsky is on the injured reserve list for a groin injury this season.
Feb 4 - 1:16 PM

David Savard (oblique strain) hasn't been given the green light to participate in contact drills.

Savard did take part in Wednesday's practice, but that doesn't necessarily mean his return is imminent. At the very least, he won't play on Thursday.
Feb 4 - 10:57 AM

Having now recovered enough from his broken ribs to resume coaching the Blue Jackets, John Tortorella has joined the team for a game in Vancouver on Thursday.

Tortorella coached the Vancouver Canucks, but that didn't go well and he was fired after just one season on the job. "It takes more time than (one year) for you to get your team concept to your team, for your team to understand you and for you to understand your team. I wanted to see it through," Tortorella said. Smiling, he added, "You guys (in the media) were crawling up my (back) and all over me, but I still think we would have seen it through and we would have understood each other better if we would have stayed together. But we didn’t. And for me, I’m very fortunate to get another opportunity." Thus far, Tortorella's tenure with Columbus seems to have gone better than his time in Vancouver, though the real test will come next season as this campaign is largely lost for the Blue Jackets.
Feb 4 - 10:56 AM

David Savard (oblique strain) participated in Wednesday's practice.

Savard was initially projected to miss four weeks and it's been about three weeks since his last contest. He has a goal and 16 points in 39 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 3 - 4:44 PM

It would be surprising if David Clarkson (upper body) returns in the not too distant future.

That's based on the fact that updates regarding Clarkson's recovery have been scarce since he was hurt on Jan. 2. Clarkson has been limited to 18 contests in 2015-16.
