  • Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Sets new career-high 53 points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/16) Saad found twine, tacking on an assist and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win against the Blackhawks.

    Saad finished the regular season on an absolute tear, lighting the lamp in three straight and five of the last six. In that span, the 23-year-old tallied a ridiculous seven goals, ending the year at 31. The 2011 second-round pick set a new career high with 53 points, and looks to be a fine addition by Columbus after spending four seasons with the Blackhawks.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Scores 30th in Friday's win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/16) Saad scored his 30th goal of the season in Friday's 4-1 win over the Sabres.

    A late-season surge isn't improving the Blue Jackets' odds of landing Austin Matthews in the draft lottery, but it's a good sign that Saad didn't quit on a disappointing season, scoring six goals in his last five games to give him his first career 30-goal campaign. If he picks up one more point Saturday against his former Blackhawks teammates, he'll also tie his previous career high of 52 points.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Adds two points Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/16) Saad scored a goal and added a helper in Wednesday's 5-1 win over Toronto.

    The first-year Blue Jacket has been on a heater of late, racking up five goals and four assists over his last eight games. With a pair of games remaining on the 2015-16 slate, Saad has achieved career highs in goals (29), power-play goals (six), game-winning goals (seven) and shots on goal (229), but he's still two shy of his career-high 52 points set last season. Look for him to push for a new milestone against the Sabres on Friday and his former team (Chicago) in the season finale Saturday.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Explodes for first career hat trick

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/16) Saad registered his first career hat trick and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 5-1 win over Carolina.

    Saad is finishing the season strong for the Blue Jackets, reaching the scoresheet in five of the last six. The winger has lit the lamp in two straight games, upping his total to 28 markers on the year and four multi-goal outings. The 23-year-old sits just two points shy of 50 for a second consecutive season.

    Blue Jackets' Brandon Saad: Nets 25th goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/16) Saad scored a power-play goal and managed four total shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Islanders.

    The goal was Saad's first in 11 games, dating back to Feb. 27 and probably one that shouldn't have happened. Saad put a soft shot on net from outside the blue line and Thomas Greiss muffed the save. The 23-year-old has now picked up points in four of his last five games.

    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.
