Zach Werenski registered an assist in a 3-2 overtime victory against Nashville on Thursday.

Werenski was making his NHL preseason debut and was given a team-high 23:41 minutes of ice time. In addition to the assist, he finished the game with a plus-three rating. "You can just tell he’s going to be a hell of a player," teammate Brandon Dubinsky said. "The poise with the puck. His ability to see the ice and to naturally jump up in the play, to make plays. I’m really excited. He’s a hell of a player. He’s going to help us a lot this year."

Sergei Bobrovsky reported that he dropped 17 pounds over the summer.

Bobrovsky is hoping that becoming a slimmer goalie, he will be able to avoid the groin issues that have previously plagued him. "That was one of the purposes coming into the season," Bobrovsky said. "I feel good now. We’ll see." Bobrovsky represented Russia in the World Cup, posting a 2.53 GAA and .930 save percentage in four contests.

Dubinsky finished the game with a plus-2 rating, three shots on goal and two hits in over 20 minutes of ice time. The 30-year-old is coming off a 17-goal, 48-point season in 2015-16.

Pat Dwyer has been cut from the Columbus Blue Jackets' training camp.

For Marc-Andre Bergeron, a return to the NHL in 2016-17 wasn't part of his initial plan.

Bergeron is a veteran of 490 NHL games, but the undersized defenseman's body "took a beating" over his years in North America and he made the move to Switzerland for the 2013-14 campaign. He's enjoyed his three seasons with Zurich SC, but at the age of 35 he's giving an NHL comeback a shot via a professional tryout with the Columbus Blue Jackets. "It took me a couple days to consider this when my agent called," he said. "But then I was like, ‘Let’s do this!' I’m only thinking about this now. My kids are back home (in Quebec) and settled in to school. I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, but I like the way things are going right now. I just want to give it my all. I’m here and feeling good."

Zach Werenski will play in Thursday's preseason match.

Dillon Heatherington has a fractured wrist.

He is expected to be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks. The defenseman was hurt during practice on Tuesday. Heatherington posted 19 points and 50 penalty minutes in 63 games with Columbus' AHL affiliate last season. He will likely to return to minors when he is healthy.
Sep 28 - 4:38 PM

Sam Gagner has a goal and four points in two exhibition games with Columbus.

Gagner has also found the back of the net in a shootout. After playing a limited role with Philadelphia in 2015-16, this is an opportunity for him to start fresh. "He keeps on making a case for himself," Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. "It looks like he’s handling the speed (well). Last night, (in Boston) was a much quicker game than our games against St. Louis. He made some good plays, made a nice play to Zaar and scored just a beautiful goal in the shootout."
Sep 28 - 4:53 AM

Daniel Zaar is making a good impression with his shoot first mentality.

Zaar's efforts have paid off so far as he found the back of the net during Monday's preseason game and added another goal and assist in Tuesday's scrimmage. He's in the competition for a roster spot after scoring 21 goals and 43 points in 71 contests as an AHL rookie last season. He also recorded seven goals and 12 points in 17 2016 AHL postseason games.
