Jenner scored a shorthanded goal and an empty-netter in a 4-1 victory over the Devils on Sunday. The 23-year-old remains a far cry from the 30-goal scorer he was last season, but he does have four scores in the last eight games. Jenner's shooting percentage is more than five percent less than where it was in 2015-16, so he was probably due for a little scoring streak.
Jenner scored the game-winning goal and added three shots on net with a plus-3 rating during Friday's win over Buffalo. After scoring 30 goals last season, 2016-17 has been a disappointing follow-up for the 23-year-old winger. Jenner has just 14 goals and 25 points for the year, and he currently isn't receiving power-play time, so his offensive upside is limited. It's best to leave Jenner to deep seasonal settings and only utilize him in daily contests when Columbus draws a favorable matchup.
Jenner scored in the second period of Sunday's 3-0 win over New Jersey. The winger hasn't been much of a scorer this year so far, with only 13 goals and 24 points in 64 games, but his 170 hits have given him a bit of extra value. He'll face off against the Devils again Tuesday, so perhaps he'll repeat his scoring performance from Sunday.
Jenner didn't record a point in Tuesday's 1-0 overtime loss to the Canadiens, but still filled up the stat sheet with eight hits, four blocked shots, two shots on goal and two PIM. He's upped his physical intensity over the last month or so, recording a whopping 50 hits and 12 PIM over his past 13 games to go along with three goals, seven points, a plus-4 rating, 47 shots and 14 blocked shots. Jenner isn't going to come close to matching last season's offensive output, when he scored 30 goals and 49 points, but in leagues with a wider range of categories he still has plenty of value.
Jenner scored a goal and an assist, adding six shots on net, four hits, a blocked shot and a plus-2 rating, in Saturday's 7-0 drubbing of the Islanders. The Blue Jackets were flying Saturday coming off their bye week, bucking the trend of teams looking rusty after their layoff, but Jenner arguably had the best game of the bunch with his ferocious play in all three zones. The 23-year-old has emerged from his first half doldrums with three goals, five points, a plus-3 rating, 26 shots and 17 hits over his last six games, and looks set to be a fantasy force down the stretch given the wide range of categories in which he can make an impact.
