Sergei Bobrovsky will be in net against the Avalanche on Thursday.

Bobrovsky came back to Earth a bit in November, posting a mere .924 save percentage in 12 games and nine wins. For the season Office Bobrovsky has been as good as they come, and is a good bet to continue his strong play against a struggling Avalanche team.

Matt Calvert's upper-body issue appears to be a head injury.

Calvert was struck in the forehead in the puck on Nov. 18. He participated in two games after that before being sidelined. The good news is he's resumed off-ice workouts. This all sounds like Calvert has a concussion, but to be clear that's speculation.

Josh Anderson has shown a lot of promise this season, but to take another next step he needs to be a more consistent producer.

"He has seven goals right now, that’s good stuff," said Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella. "But he has to continue to stay on top of himself as far as . . . what it is to be a pro. I’m not sure on that with him. Does it get good to him because he had a good night? Or, does he come back and do it the next game with even more concentration? That’s the key with these young guys. I have a question mark with Josh on that." Anderson had a goal and two assists on Tuesday and also found the back of the net on Friday. Before that though he went four games without a point and he also had an eight-game point drought earlier in the campaign. It's not unusual for young players to go on more severe hot and cold streaks, but he might end up with 40-50 points this season regardless.
Nov 30 - 9:22 AM

Sergei Bobrovsky turned aside 26 of 27 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 blowout win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Bobrovsky appeared to be on his way to getting a shutout in this one, but the Lightning managed to score with less than three minutes remaining. The Jackets turned in a complete effort in this game and they've been one of the pleasant surprises of this young season. Bobrovsky has a 12-5-2 record with a 2.09 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage in 2016-17. He's a strong fantasy play right now.

Josh Anderson scored a goal and two assists in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Anderson picked up a primary assist on William Karlsson's first period goal, he scored one of his own in the second period and picked up a second assist on Scott Hartnell's goal in the final frame. This was Anderson's second three-point night of the season. He's now up to seven goals, 10 points, a plus-10 rating and 19 penalty minutes in 21 games this season.
Nov 29 - 10:18 PM

Scott Harrington will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

This has been a reoccurring theme this season. Harrington has been a healthy scratch in all but three games in 2016-17. Dalton Prout remains out with a back injury.

Sergei Bobrovsky will get the nod in Tuesday's game against the Bolts.

Bobrovsky allowed three goals on 28 shots in a win over the Lightning last week and he'll get another crack at them tonight. He enters tonight's action with an 11-5-2 record, a 2.15 goals-against-average and a .929 save percentage.
Nov 29 - 6:36 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky is on pace to play 72 games this season.

Coach John Tortorella wanted Bobrovsky to play 58-60 games but the Blue Jackets schedule to start the season was pretty light, allowing the coach to play the Russian netminder more often. He should slow down with the schedule getting more compact but is still 11-5-2 with a 2.15 GAA and a .929 save percentage. He is a must start for the upstart Blue Jackets.
Nov 29 - 7:03 AM

The Columbus Blue Jackets acquired Ryan Stanton from the Colorado Avalanche for Cody Goloubef.

Stanton played one NHL game with the Washington Capitals last season, but spent most of the year in the minors with AHL Hershey. This season, he has one goal, three assists and 29 penalty minutes with AHL San Antonio. He won't be joining the Blue Jackets right now, as they've assigned him to their minor league affiliate in Cleveland. This trade has no fantasy implications.
Nov 28 - 9:00 PM

Alexander Wennberg has shown that he is the Blue Jackets number one center.

The Blue Jackets have dealt a couple of good centers in the last 18 months as Artem Anisimov was part of a deal to Chicago and Ryan Johansen was sent to Nashville for Seth Jones. But Wennberg has come into his own and his 15 assists are tied for third best in the NHL at this time. "Alex is a different player this year," linemate Nick Foligno said. "When the game wasn't going his way before, he might have disappeared for the whole game. Now he finds a way to make a difference. That's huge for him. He's really confident in his ability right now. He understands how he has to play, but also that grit and that grind he has to have. He's balancing it very well right now." Wennberg is a must start in pools at this time.
Nov 28 - 7:11 AM

The Columbus Blue Jackets have sent Justin Scott back to AHL Cleveland.

The 21-year-old didn't make his NHL debut during his stint up with the Blue Jackets. Scott has three goals and six points in 16 AHL games for the Monsters thus far.
