The Columbus Blue Jackets have sent Jordan Schroeder to the minors.

Schroeder had no points in eight games this season with Columbus. He will not be missed in your fantasy pool.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have sent defenseman Gabriel Carlsson to the minors.

Carlsson has sat out the last six games so he needs some playing time with Cleveland of the AHL. He has one point in 10 games so this move should not have affected your fantasy lineup.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled Cameron Gaunce from the minors.

Gaunce inked a two-year/two-way contract on July 1 and has spent all season in the minors. The defenseman had five assists in 20 games with Cleveland along with 27 penalty minutes. He will start off as a seventh defenseman for the Blue Jackets and have no value.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have recalled Sonny Milano from the minors.

The forward has five goals and 10 points in 25 games with Columbus this season. He was pointless in two games for Cleveland this week and had a couple of helpers in four games overall. He'll likely be a bottom-six forward and not have much in the way of fantasy value at this time.

Scott Harrington played in his ninth straight game on Saturday.

After playing only twice in the Blue Jackets first 24 games, Harrington is now a fixture on the blueline as he is paired with David Savard. He has a goal and an assist in 11 games so his fantasy value is negligible.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 22 saves on 24 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Bobrovsky only allowed two goals but still was on the losing end. He's now 2-4-0 in games where he's allowed exactly two goals. His record falls to 17-9-1 with a 2.27 GAA and a .923 save percentage.

Alexander Wennberg scored the Columbus Blue Jackets' lone goal in a 2-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Building off his two-assist night Thursday, Wennberg scored for the Jackets on Saturday. Alas, it was his team's only goal. But maybe he's continuing to build favour with his coach John Tortorella, who praised him after Thursday night's game. Wennberg now has three goals and 14 points in 27 games this season.

The Columbus Blue Jackets will sit Gabriel Carlsson tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Gabriel Carlsson and Markus Hannikainen will be in the press box tonight. Carlsson has only one point in 10 games and will sit for the sixth straight game.

The Columbus Blue Jackets will have Sergei Bobrovsky in goal tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Bobrovsky has been impressive again this season. He is coming into the contest with a 17-8-1 record with a 2.27 goals against average and .923 save percentage.

Ryan Murray (upper body) was on the ice before practice Friday, but he didn't take part in the session.

Murray displayed some progress when he skated and shot pucks in full equipment, but he still hasn't joined his teammates on the ice since he suffered an upper-body injury. He has missed the last eight games.

Sergei Bobrovsky is the Blue Jackets' probable starter against the Hurricanes Saturday night.

Bob has been his usual stellar self this season posting a 17-8-1 record with a 2.27 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage. He is coming off a 6-4 against the Islanders Thursday night in which he stopped 21 shots.
Dec 16 - 9:48 AM

Boone Jenner shifted to center to take the place of the injured Brandon Dubinsky Thursday night and earned high praise from Jacket coach John Tortorella.

Jenner, who centered the team's third unit flanked by Matt Calvert and Nick Foligno Thursday night, won 15 of 26 faceoffs and blocked four shots. The young forward has been in a season-long slump after starting the campaign on the injured list following a back injury. Torts had this to say about Jenner's first game at center: "He (Jenner) handled himself really well...for his first game there in a while, I liked the line, and I liked what he did." Jenner, who has been looking for a consistent role on the team since he returned from injury for the Jackets' eighth game of the season, may have found it as the squad's third-line pivot.

Alexander Wennberg received some positive reinforcement from Blue Jacket coach John Tortorella Friday night

Torts has not been happy with Wennberg's play all season but the bench boss had high praise for Wennberg's two-assist effort Thursday evening. "It’s the most I’ve noticed him in a game (this season)," Tortorella said."It’s the most I’ve seen him do that (moving his legs and carrying the puck through the neutral zone) since even toward the end of last year to this point," Tortorella said. "It’s been that long of a struggle for him. So that was encouraging." Perhaps Wennberg, who has been in a season-long slump with only 13 points, will start to turn it around.

Sergei Bobrovsky allowed four goals on 25 shots in Thursday's 6-4 win over the New York Islanders.

The Blue Jackets built up a 3-0 lead in the first period, but the Islanders managed to score three unanswered goals in the second frame to tie it up at three. Fortunately for Columbus, they were able to score twice before the second intermission and they never looked back. Bobrovsky has now won three of his last four games. He owns a 17-8-1 record with a 2.27 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season. He continues to be one of the best fantasy options at his position.

Zach Werenski scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-4 win over the New York Islanders.

Werenski opened the scoring at the 3:57 mark of the first period. He also registered the primary assist on Pierre-Luc Dubois' goal that gave the Jackets a 3-0 lead in the opening frame. The Islanders managed to tie the game at three in the second frame, but Columbus pulled away before the end of the period. Werenski finished the night with a minus-1 rating, five shots on goal and two hits in 24:11 of ice time. The 20-year-old is now up to 10 goals and 18 points in 32 games this season. He's on pace to an impressive 26 goals in 2017-18. He remains one of the best young blue liners in the NHL.
