  • Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Officially named finalist for Calder Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/21/17) Werenski (face) is a finalist for the 2017 Calder Trophy, the Toronto Sun reports.

    Toronto forward and first overall pick Auston Matthews is the odds-on favorite to claim the hardware, but Werenski certainly turned heads during the regular season as the owner of 47 points (11 goals, 36 assists) to complement a plus-17 rating in 78 games -- not to mention the 21 points he whipped up on the man advantage. A facial fracture sustained in the Stanley Cup conference quarterfinals knocked the stud blueliner out of action for what would be Columbus' final game of the 2016-17 campaign, so healing from that injury will be Werenski's focus early in the offseason.

    Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Out for remainder of postseason

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/17/17) Werenski (face) will miss the rest of the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs after suffering a facial fracture Sunday against the Penguins.

    Werenski, who caught a puck up under his visor, originally returned to the ice wearing a full shield but eventually had to leave as the swelling prevented him from being able to see. The Blue Jackets will struggle to replace the 20-year-old, who was an offensive force during the regular season -- 11 goals and 36 points -- and registered his first playoff marker Sunday. It will likely fall to Markus Nutivaara or Kyle Quincey to slot into the lineup for Werenski for the remainder of the postseason.

    Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Suffers ugly face injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/17) Werenski took a puck to the face in the second period of Sunday's Game 3 overtime loss to the Penguins. He left briefly before returning in the third period wearing full facial protection, but was unable to suit up for overtime because the swelling in his eye worsened, making it hard for him to see, Nick Cotsonika of NHL.com reports. He also scored a power-play goal in the contest.

    The 19-year-old showed a ton of heart in returning, and the sight of his bruised and bloodied face quickly took the sports world by storm. Werenski ended up logging 19:08 of ice time in total and should be considered day-to-day ahead of Game 4 on Tuesday, but as long as he's able to see, it's probably a safe bet that he'll be playing considering the Jackets need all hands on deck after falling behind 3-0 in the series.

    Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Makes playoff debut in Wednesday's loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/13/17) Werenski (shoulder) was in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 1 against the Penguins, going scoreless with six shots, a block and a hit over 25:19 on the ice.

    After a four-game absence, he certainly didn't look tentative about throwing his body around, so it's safe to get Werenski back into DFS lineups heading into Game 2 on Friday in the Steel City.

    Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Back in action Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/17) Werenski (shoulder) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's Game 1 clash with the Penguins, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

    Werenski missed the final four games of the campaign, but he'll be ready to play in the postseason. In his past three matchups with Pittsburgh, the blueliner failed to register a point, managing a meager two shots on goal and four blocked shots while averaging 20:19 of ice time. Werenski will need to step up his game if the Jackets are going to compete with the Pens' top-ranked offense, which is adding Evgeni Malkin (shoulder) back to the mix.
