Bobrovsky lit the lamp twice in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Carolina -- his first goals since Dec. 9.

Although he produced a semi-reasonable eight assists over his 17-game span between goals, the veteran pivot has still been a massive disappointment to fantasy owners, as he's in the midst of his worst NHL campaign since breaking in full-time back in 2007-08. On the bright side, he skated 1:35 on the power play after seeing no man-advantage time in the Jackets' last game, and perhaps these two tallies will launch Dubinsky into a strong second half. Nonetheless, fantasy owners should take a skeptical, wait-and-see approach here.

News
Bobrovsky stopped 24 of 25 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 victory over Columbus.

An illness kept him out the past three games, but Bob is apparently healthy again and ready to resume his role as one of the NHL's most valuable goalies. This was his league-leading 27th win, giving the Russian netminder a four-victory cushion over the trailing Devan Dubnyk and Cam Talbot (23 apiece).

Cam Atkinson, # 13

News
Atkinson skated a season-low 13:32 in Tuesday's win over Carolina, but that was enough time for him to notch two assists, four shots and a plus-3 rating.

There's no clear reason for the decline in ice time, but it's probably just an anomaly due to the Jackets having this game pretty well in hand by its midpoint. Atkinson is now precisely on a point-per-game pace through his 43 contests this season, leaving him just 10 shy of last season's career-high 53 points. He's a star, and that's all there is to it.

Boone Jenner, # 38

News
Jenner scored a goal, added an assist and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over Carolina.

He has points in four straight and a plus-6 rating in that span, so Jenner's starting to pick up the pace after an awful first half. Remember, he's still just 23 years old and coming off a 30-goal season, so there's plenty to like about his fantasy potential in the second half, and he's probably pretty widely available due to his 11-point showing in the first 39 games of this season.

News
Sedlak scored a goal while adding two shots and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.

He also dominated the faceoff circle, winning 11 of 14 draws on the night. Sedlak doesn't see a lot of ice time from the Blue Jackets' fourth line, and as a result his fantasy production (five goals and 11 points in 41 games) has been modest, but his skill in winning faceoffs givens him a secure spot on the team's depth chart.

News
Murray posted two assists along with three shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.

He came in with just five assists scattered over 37 games this season, so this was a rather out-of-nowhere performance for Murray, who's seen a big drop in his usage compared to last year. The 23-year-old blueliner showed plenty of potential in juniors and was the No. 2 overall pick in 2012, but the injuries he suffered through in the past seem to have adversely affected his offensive development. There's still time for him to develop that side of his game, but don't count on it to happen this year.

News
Forsberg was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Sunday.

The Blue Jackets don't play again until Tuesday -- a home game against the Hurricanes -- but Forsberg's reassignment to the minors suggests that Sergei Bobrovsky (illness) will be good to go in that one.

News
Nutivaara (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday against the Hurricanes.

Nutivaara's absence will test the Blue Jackets' depth at defense, but with just seven points (two goals, five assists) in 42 games this season, the Finnish blueliner isn't much of a factor in season-long fantasy leagues. Scott Harrington will likely get an opportunity to skate on Columbus' bottom pairing while Nutivaara is sidelined.

Illness - Day-to-Day (Updated - 1/18/17)
News
Werenski was sidelined for Wednesday's practice, leaving his status against the Senators on Thursday in question, Tom Reed of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Werenski leads all Blue Jackets defensemen with 26 points, so losing him for any stretch would likely be a significant blow to their blue line scoring. Although the rookie is on a 19-game goalless streak, he has tallied nine helpers over that span, eight of which have come on the power play. If the 20-year-old is unable to give it a go Thursday, look for Jack Johnson to slide up into the top pairing.
