    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Scores first goal since All-Star break

    Saad snapped a four-game slump with his 20th goal of the season Thursday in a 4-3 overtime win against the Ducks. That makes two consecutive years of 20-plus goals for Saad, but the sniper's eyes should be on clearing the 30 mark before this season's out -- he could accomplish that if he can find a nice little hot streak. Breaking out Thursday after four consecutive scoreless outings following his first All-Star appearance is a good start on that front.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Pots pair of goals Monday

    Saad scored twice in Monday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens. He also skated to a plus-2 and fired five shots on goal. The former Blackhawk now leads the Blue Jackets in scoring with 34 points, which is one ahead of Scott Hartnell. His plus-1 rating on the year isn't spectacular, but he's one of just three forwards on the team that has a plus rating -- and the other two have only played a combined 22 games this season. Furthermore, Saad paces Columbus in shots with 148, so it's probably safe to say that he's officially the most valuable fantasy commodity on the Jackets now that Ryan Johansen has moved on.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Nets twice in shootout thriller

    Saad connected on two goals Saturday night, driving the Blue Jackets toward a 5-4 shootout win over the Capitals. On Saad's first goal, he virtually deked Caps goalie Braden Holtby out of his skates and ultimately raked the puck into the twine with a game-tying score in the third period. Saad now has 29 points in 39 games and has a plus-1 rating, which is impressive when you consider that the Blue Jackets are minus-24 as a team.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Registers two points Sunday

The 23-year-old has 25 points on the season, second most on the woeful Blue Jackets. Saad will face another difficult test on Tuesday when the red hot Dallas Stars come to Columbus.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Three-point night in Thursday's win

    Saad scored a goal and added two assists in Thursday's wild 7-5 win over the Coyotes. It's his first multi-point game in exactly a month, as he potted two goals in a win over the Blues on Nov. 17. Saad hasn't quite lived up to his offseason press clippings since joining the Blue Jackets, but with 11 goals and 21 points through 33 games, he's roughly on the same scoring pace he recorded in his final campaign with the Blackhawks.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Snaps 11-game goal drought

    Saad snapped an 11-game goal drought with a goal in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders. It was his 10th of the season. Saad has 18 points in 30 games which puts him on pace to come close to his 52 points of last season. We'd like to see him deliver a little more consistency in his game -- he has just five points in his last 11 games. But Saad did just turn 23. It will come.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Goalless streak endures

    Saad has now gone nine games without registering a goal. Saad has struggled this year after signing with Columbus in the off season. The defenseman seemed ready to right the ship, scoring five goals in eight games at the start of November. Since then, however, the 23-year-old has managed just three assists and zero goals in nine contests.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Picks up another assist Friday

    Saad assisted on Boone Jenner's goal during a 4-0 win over the Predators on Friday. He's now got six points (four goals, two assists) in the last five games, as the Ryan Johansen-Saad-Jenner line has caught fire and led the Blue Jackets to a 4-1 record over that stretch. Saad set career highs last season with 23 goals and 52 points, but he looks set to top those marks in his first campaign with Columbus.
