News
Foligno potted two goals Saturday in a 7-0 victory over the Islanders.

Perhaps that 31-goal season two years ago wasn't a fluke. Foligno now has 22 goals in 57 games and has a chance to crest 30 again.

Jack Johnson, # 7

News
Johnson scored the game-winning goal Saturday in a 7-0 victory over the Islanders. He finished plus-5.

Johnson has never grown into the promise of a third-overall pick, but he's been steady for the Jackets. His offense is thin these days -- JJ now sits with three goals and 17 points in 59 games. But his team counts on him for more than scoring. Unfortunately, that makes Johnson a marginal fantasy play in all but the deepest of formats.

Injuries
Oblique - Expected to be out until at least Mar 4 (Updated - 2/24/17)
News
Calvert will be sidelined week-to-week due to an oblique strain he sustained during Sunday's loss to the Predators.

There had been no indication prior to this press release that Calvert had been dealing with any kind of injury and now he will have to sit for an extended period. With just nine goals and two assists while averaging 13:37 of ice time on the season, Calvert's absence isn't likely to affect most fantasy owners, but it will affect the functioning of Columbus' fourth line. Expect Markus Hannikainen to be the next man up with Calvert on the shelf.

David Savard, # 58
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM

News
Savard had a big game Saturday against the Islanders, scoring a goal, adding two assists and finishing plus-5 in a 7-0 romp.

It's Savard's first multi-point effort of the season and his first career three-point game. He now has 16 points on the season, but just four points in his last 10 games. Savard had a great game, but don't be sucked in by the points -- he's just not delivering enough offense to be reliable in the fantasy arena.

Sergei Bobrovsky, # 72

News
Bobrovsky was confirmed as the starter for Sunday's game against the Rangers in NYC.

The Russian has been one of the best tenders in the league this season, with a 2.21 GAA and .925 save percentage on the year. Sunday's matchup with the Rangers will be an unstoppable force against an immovable object, as Bob faces off against a Rangers team that averages 3.34 goals per game at home.

News
Jenner scored a goal and an assist, adding six shots on net, four hits, a blocked shot and a plus-2 rating, in Saturday's 7-0 drubbing of the Islanders.

The Blue Jackets were flying Saturday coming off their bye week, bucking the trend of teams looking rusty after their layoff, but Jenner arguably had the best game of the bunch with his ferocious play in all three zones. The 23-year-old has emerged from his first half doldrums with three goals, five points, a plus-3 rating, 26 shots and 17 hits over his last six games, and looks set to be a fantasy force down the stretch given the wide range of categories in which he can make an impact.

News
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.

News
Wennburg hit the 50-point plateau with two assists in Saturday's 7-0 pounding of the Islanders.

Wennburg has six assists in his last four games and is on pace to record more than 65 points. His career growth has been remarkable -- Wennburg delivered 20 points as a rookie and 40 as a sophomore. Now, his third season has been an offensive explosion. This 22-year-old has all of the markings of an elite, playmaking first-line pivot.

Josh Anderson, # 34

News
Anderson scored twice, adding six shots on net, three hits and a plus-3 rating, in Saturday's 7-0 rout of the Islanders.

He was all over the ice Saturday, and his second goal was an absolute beauty, as he buried the puck over a helpless Jean-Francois Berube's shoulder from the top of the faceoff circle on a partial breakaway. Anderson now has 13 goals and 23 points in 58 games in his first full season in the NHL, and has cemented himself on a checking line for the Blue Jackets with his physical play and ability to contribute in the offensive end.

News
Forsberg was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Friday, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Despite a fair amount of call-ups, Forsberg has only appeared in one game at hockey's highest level this campaign. The Swede seems to be on a development track parallel to that of fellow prospect Joonas Korpisalo, but the Blue Jackets have starting backstop Sergei Bobrovsky under contract and with a no-move clause through 2018-19 -- with Bob healthy and playing so well (31-13-3, 2.25 GAA, .925 save percentage) -- it gives this team the luxury of easing their secondary goalies into the system.
