The Blue Jackets' AHL affiliate in Springfield has signed Seth Ambroz to an amateur tryout contract.

The Jackets fifth round pick in 2011 played four seasons with the Golden Gophers of Minnesota before his college career ended on Friday. He maxed out at 23 points in each of his last two seasons so his fantasy potential is limited.
Mar 29 - 8:39 AM

Boone Jenner scored for the first time since December 13 and added an assist on Saturday.

Jenner had been out of action for over three months with a back injury before returning last week. He now has seven goals and 14 points this season in 24 games this season.
Mar 29 - 8:30 AM

William Karlsson scored his first goal Saturday as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The forward was dealt to Columbus as part of the James Wisniewski trade. He had two goals for the Ducks in 18 games. The 22-year-old second round pick of the 2011 draft will have a good shot at cracking the Columbus lineup next season but his fantasy value may be negligible.
Mar 29 - 8:27 AM

Cam Atkinson notched a goal and an assist in the Blue Jackets’ 4-2 win over the Blues on Saturday night.

Atkinson scored the empty netter and he assisted on the game-tying goal from Boone Jenner with 21 seconds remaining in regulation. Atkinson has points in three consecutive games and a recent hot streak has seen him reach 20 goals and 37 points. Jenner also had a helper. Jack Johnson and William Karlsson picked up the other goals.
Mar 28 - 10:46 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky made 29 saves for the Blue Jackets in their 4-2 win against the Blues on Saturday night.

The Blue Jackets really had no business winning this game, so they can point to Bobrovsky for giving them a chance. He stopped all 13 shots he faced in the third period. Bobrovsky has won five games in a row, and now sports a 2.74 goals-against average and .917 save percentage. Keep rolling him out there.
Mar 28 - 10:46 PM

Forward Rene Bourque will miss the rest of the season because of a back injury.

That was the word Saturday night from Columbus Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards. Bourque was injured a week ago and had not played since. He was getting hot before the injury with three goals in his previous two games. On the season, Bourque had six goals and eight assists for 14 points in 51 games.

Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky is the probable starter for the Columbus Blue Jackets against the St. Louis Blues Saturday night.

Bobrovsky faced 33 shots Friday night and allowed two goals in the first period during a 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. Bobrovsky, 26, has won four consecutive starts. He is 24-17-2 on the season with a goals-against average of 2.76 and a save percentage of .916.
Mar 28 - 5:34 PM

Columbus prospect Daniel Zaar has been invited to Team Sweden camp for the upcoming World Championships.

Zaar was drafted 152nd overall in 2012 and the Blue Jackets should bring him across the pond next season with his likely destination in the AHL. He had nine goals and 27 points in 52 games with Lulea of the Swedish Elite League this season.
Mar 28 - 8:20 AM

Rene Bourque (upper body) skated on Friday but is still considered questionable for Sunday's game.

Bourque was banged up a week ago and has not played since Saturday. He was getting hot before the injury with three goals in his previous two games but the well-travelled forward could go back to square one as the Blue Jackets have won both games in his absence during a five game winning streak.
Mar 28 - 8:17 AM

Sonny Milano picked up an assist in his professional debut Friday.

Milano was sent to Springfield of the AHL once his OHL season was over as the Plymouth Whalers did not make the playoffs. He had 22 goals and 68 points in 50 games as he battled an abdominal strain near the end of the season. The 16th overall pick in 2014 is highly regarded.
Mar 28 - 8:12 AM

Ryan Johansen scored once and added an assist in the Blue Jackets 5-2 win on Friday.

It was the 25th goal of the season for Johansen and it gives the Blue Jackets their third 25 goal scorer of the season, a franchise record. Scott Hartnell and Nick Foligno had already hit the mark. Johansen is on a six game scoring streak in which he has three goals and eight points. He has 65 points this season in 74 games.
Mar 28 - 8:08 AM

Brandon Dubinsky (upper body) returned to action on Friday.

The Blue Jackets won 5-2 but Dubinsky was a minus-one with nary a point in the game. He played 16:51 after missing 10 days. Dubinsky has nine goals and 25 points in 36 games this season. Put him back in your lineup.
Mar 28 - 2:40 AM

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 31 of 33 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over Chicago.

Bobrovsky allowed two goals to Brandon Saad and Jonathan Toews in the first period but he was perfect the rest of the way. The 26-year-old has now won four consecutive starts for Columbus. Bobrovsky has an overall record of 24-17-2 on the season and he has a 2.76 goals-against-average to go along with a .916 save percentage in 2014-15. As a whole, Bobrovsky's season has been disappointing. His numbers are average and he has dealt with a couple of injuries that have forced him to miss time. Bobrovsky should be an intriguing bounce-back candidate next year.
Mar 27 - 11:23 PM

Cam Atkinson scored a hat trick in Columbus' 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

Atkinson's first two goals were scored in the first period and he added an empty netter to complete the trifecta. Atkinson is now just two goals away from tying his career-high of 21 which he set last season. The 25-year-old signed a three-year contract extension with the Jackets in March so he should be part of the team for the foreseeable future. Atkinson has 19 goals and 35 points in 70 games this season. Ryan Johanssen and Kevin Connauton also scored for Columbus.
Mar 27 - 11:08 PM

Justin Falk will be scratched against the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

Falk has seen just 16 with Minnesota and now Columbus this season, producing just two points, eight hits, 12 PIMs, and 15 blocks.
