Player News
  • Wennberg was the shootout hero in a 2-1 win against Vancouver on Thursday. Wennberg failed to register a point for the second straight game but scored the shootout winner to give the Blue Jackets the win. Though he has just 19 points on the season, the second-year player is vastly improved, logging regular minutes for head coach John Tortorella after playing less than 10 minutes in a few games early this season. He's on pace to set a new career-high in points, shots and faceoffs won, but has also improved his plus-minus rating to even from minus-19 and has yet to take any penalties this season. He's a big piece of the puzzle for Columbus moving forward but isn't a major contributor at this point of his career. He could be a breakout player next season, though.

  • Wennberg picked up an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Wild. He's been given top-six duties lately by coach John Tortorella, and Wennberg has responded with two goals and eight points in his last nine games. He's still a better keeper asset than a productive player in redraft leagues, but the second-year Swede is beginning to come into his own.

  • Wennberg scored a goal and added two assists in Thursday's wild 7-5 win over the Coyotes. The second-year center has started to find his scoring groove while playing on a line with Brandon Saad, and Wennberg now has nine points (one goal, eight assists) in his last seven games.

  • Wennberg collected three assists in Thursday's loss to Winnipeg. Wennberg has racked up five assists in his last three games and is main the most of his time on the second line. The 21-year-old only has six points in 18 games on the season, but he's trending upwards and should continue to produce as long as he's seeing quality minutes.

  • Wennberg (lower body) was activated from injured reserve by the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Wennberg will look to get back on track on Wednesday against the Devils. The 21-year-old Swede has notched one goal through 10 contests this season, his second in the NHL. He is a bottom six forward for Columbus when healthy.
