Jenner's third period goal proved to be the game winner in Thursday's 3-2 victory over the Avalanche. He's had a brutal start to the season offensively -- the goal was just his third in 22 games -- but Jenner has been finding other ways to contribute, as highlighted by the 10 hits he laid in Tuesday's win over the Lightning. He still has a prominent spot on one of the Blue Jackets' top two lines, so hopefully this goal will help break him out of his scoring slump.
Jenner didn't record a point Tuesday, but dished out 10 hits in a 5-1 win over the Lightning. Wow -- talk about laying the body. Jenner is known for throwing his weight around after recording more than 200 hits in both of his full NHL seasons, but it's a rare feat for anyone to reach double digits in a single contest. He's been a major disappointment offensively with just six points in 21 games thus far after last year's 30-goal, 49-point showing, so hopefully his affinity for the physical game helps spark his scoring sooner than later.
Jenner had two assists, two PIM, two shots on goal, two hits, a blocked shot and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 8-4 win over the Blues. Now that's more like it. Jenner had a rough start to the season, but he's got four points in his last five games and seems to be working his way back into coach John Tortorella's good graces, as well as a top-six role.
Jenner opened the scoring with a first period tally in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Ducks, his first goal of the season. It's been a rough start to the season for Jenner, who now has three points and a minus-7 rating in 11 games. His ice time has been cut way back over the last two games -- he saw just 13:12 on Wednesday -- but if he's finally digging his way out of the slump (and out of coach John Tortorella's doghouse), Jenner should quickly regain top-six minutes.
Jenner registered a power-play helper and three shots on goal in 19:00 of ice time during Friday's 10-0 victory over Montreal. Jenner was on ice for a season high in Friday's domination of the Canadiens. The 23-year-old looks comfortable on the top six, although he's off to a disappointing beginning to the year. The 2011 second-round pick has just two assists and a minus-8 rating -- numbers that are sore on the eyes through nine games. Jenner managed to reach 49 points last season and should turn it around.
