  • Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Will play in World Championships

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/12/16) Wennberg will suit up for Team Sweden at the World Championships next month in Russia, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    The second-year center quietly put together a strong campaign, scoring eight goals and 40 points in 69 games with a minus-1 rating, an impressive defensive performance on a disappointing Blue Jackets squad. Wennberg will likely head up the Jackets' third line in 2016-2017, especially if the team can find a true No. 1 center this offseason.

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Closes out sophomore campaign with three points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/16) Wennberg lit the lamp, adding two helpers and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

    Wennberg doesn't score often, as the 21-year-old had not found twine in 10 games and finishes the year with just eight tallies. The 2013 first-round pick did reach 40 points for the season -- double his rookie campaign -- after impacting the box score in the last three to finish it out. It would be wise to take note of the center's improvements, as a breakout next year isn't out of the question.

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Picks up two helpers, first PIM of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/16) Wennberg registered two assists, two PIM and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 5-1 win over Carolina.

    Wennberg was able to notch his fifth multi-assist outing in the last 18 outings -- 12 total helpers. The 21-year-old only lit the lamp once in that span, but he isn't necessarily known for his scoring touch. Saturday did mark the first time the center has reached the penalty box this season, taking 65 appearances to do so.

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Will play against Philadelphia

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/16) Wennberg (lower body) is in the lineup for Tuesday's meeting with the Flyers.

    Wennberg missed just one contest due to injury and will look to build upon his two-game scoring streak. The center was rolling prior to his injury as he snagged eight points in nine nights, including three multi-point outings. While he certainly is not going to break any NHL scoring records, it might be worth giving the 21-year-old a look as a discount option in your daily lineups.

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Expected to play Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/16) Wennberg (lower body) is expected to suit up for Tuesday's game against the Flyers.

    The Blue Jackets will hope to have Wennberg on the ice for Tuesday's tilt against Philadelphia, as the 21-year-old forward has played well of late, tallying eight points in his last nine games. Wennberg's availability for Columbus' matchup with the Flyers should be confirmed prior to puck drop Tuesday evening.
