  • Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Two helpers in Saturday's rout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/26/17) Saad picked up two assists with a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 7-0 drubbing of the Islanders.

    Getting knocked off one of the Blue Jackets' top lines didn't slow Saad down at all Saturday, as he now has a goal and five points in his last five games with a stellar plus-7 rating and 12 shots on net. On the season the 24-year-old is now a career-high plus-21, better than he managed on a Blackhawks squad in the midst of winning two Stanley Cups in three years, and Saad is also on pace to challenge the 60-point plateau for the first time.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Dropped to fourth line in practice Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/25/17) Saad skated on a line with Sam Gagner and Scott Hartnell during Friday's practice, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Injuries to checking line forwards Lukas Sedlak (lower body) and Matt Calvert (oblique) have caused coach John Tortorella to shuffle things up, and at least at even strength, Saad seems to have drawn the short straw. He'll still keep his spot on the second power play unit, though, and had been heating up before the Blue Jackets' bye week, scoring three points (one goal, two assists) with a plus-5 rating and 11 shots on goal in his last four games. Don't assume the new assignment will have a big impact on his fantasy value while it lasts.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Helps out with assist against Maple Leafs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/16/17) Saad recorded an assist and three shots on net during Wednesday's win over Toronto.

    While Saad has an uphill climb to match last season's 31-goal showing, he's on pace for his best campaign in the points column. In fact, among all skaters with at least 750 minutes at five-on-five this season, Saad's 2.47 points per 60 minutes rank fifth in the league. Unfortunately, despite averaging 1:36 of power-play time per game, he has just one goal and one assist with the man advantage. The power-play production could pick up down the stretch, but it's likely best viewed as a bonus and not expected. Still, Saad's already a go-to scorer and fantasy asset, and he's just entering his offensive prime.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Pots 100th career goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/17) Saad scored his 100th career goal Tuesday, adding an assist and a plus-2 rating in a 6-4 win over the Rangers.

    It took him 335 games, as Saad has only gradually moved toward attaining the sniping future that was long forecast for him. Although he's having a solid year with 17 goals and 37 points in 49 games (which has him on pace to clear 60 points for the first time), it's hard not to feel like something's missing from Saad's repertoire, and that something is power-play production -- he has just two man-advantage points all year even though he's seen a decent amount of time in those situations.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Finds back of net Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/27/17) Saad scored his 16th goal of the season in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Predators.

    He's been in a slump heading into the All-Star break -- Thursday's tally was just his second goal, and second point, in the last 12 games -- but Saad still has 35 points through 48 games, putting him on pace to threaten the 60-point mark for the first time in his career. With some time off to clear his head, the 24-year-old could catch fire to begin the second half.

    March 30, 2015: Three-Game Point Streak For Hawks' Saad
    Saad registered a power-play assist in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Jets.Saad has points in three straight games, and perhaps more notably, saw 3:27 of power-play time Sunday, second on the Blackhawks only to Duncan Keith. With a top-six role at even strength also in hand, Saad might make for a quality roster addition in medium-sized or deeper formats for the final two weeks of the season.
