Injuries
Neck - Day-To-Day (Updated - 2/13/16)
News
Boll (neck) won't play Thursday against the Ducks, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Fantasy owners don't need to concern themselves with Boll's absence, as the 29-year-old winger has failed to tally a single point in 20 games with the Blue Jackets this season. Expect an update on Boll's status once he's ready to draw back into Columbus' lineup.

News
Foligno notched two primary assists -- the latter on the game-tying power-play goal -- in Thursday's 4-3 shootout win over the Ducks.

Last year's 73 points have looked more and more like a mirage as this season's gone along, but particularly once Foligno returned from injured reserve after missing half of January and recorded one lonely assist in seven games. Foligno was given a pretty strong wake-up call by the coaching staff Tuesday, as he skated a season-low 11:23, and the message seems to have been received and acknowledged -- his ice time leapt back up to 20:52 in this one.

News
Savard received 19:48 TOI in his return from an oblique injury Saturday, recording a plus-1 rating with four shots on net, three blocks shots and two hits.

His ice time is likely to trend downwards a little now that Seth Jones has established himself as the Jackets' number one blueliner, but Savard should still see heavy usage on one of Columbus' top two pairs. Without big power play minutes, however, he'll have a hard time matching last season's 11 goals and 36 points, so don't expect a big second half from Savard in most fantasy formats.

Cam Atkinson, # 13
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
56191837-118
 
News
Atkinson scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Senators.

He was also a plus-2 and fired six shots, filling up the score sheet in fantasy formats with more extensive categories. Atkinson has come to life lately, recording four multi-point performances and 10 points total (six goals, four assists) in his last eight games, and it's perhaps no coincidence that the Jackets are 6-2 over that stretch.

Boone Jenner, # 38
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
57191332-748
 
News
Jenner scored twice in Saturday's win over Ottawa. He now has 19 goals on the season.

Jenner's game is really rounding into form. He's pounding hits (155) and firing shots (156), and has been perhaps the Jackets' only bright spot on a crummy season. Jenner isn't an elite talent, but he plays the game hard and heavy, and that makes him difficult to handle on the ice. His fantasy value is solid -- he'll help you in a whole lot of ways.

Brandon Saad, # 20

News
Saad snapped a four-game slump with his 20th goal of the season Thursday in a 4-3 overtime win against the Ducks.

That makes two consecutive years of 20-plus goals for Saad, but the sniper's eyes should be on clearing the 30 mark before this season's out -- he could accomplish that if he can find a nice little hot streak. Breaking out Thursday after four consecutive scoreless outings following his first All-Star appearance is a good start on that front.

Ryan Murray, # 27
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
5741317-232
 
News
Murray signed a two-year contract extension with the Blue Jackets on Thursday.

The extension is expected to net him $2.825 million annually, a solid bump from his entry level contract from 2012. General manager Jarmo Kekalainen described Murray as a "talented, smart player who has been a very steady performer on our blue line," and noted that the 22-year-old has earned himself more ice time through his improved play. Murray has averaged a solid 22:28 of ice time this season, and he has shown a willingness to sacrifice his body on the defensive end (114 blocked shots). His new deal will keep him in Columbus for at least a couple more seasons, but it wouldn't be surprising if the team looks for a longer extension later if he continues to polish his game.

Seth Jones, # 3
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
5612021-114
 
News
Jones picked up two assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Senators.

He appears to be growing into his role as the Jackets' number one defenseman, and Jones now has 10 points (all assists) and a plus-4 rating in 24:20 a night over 16 games since coming over from Nashville. Columbus would like to see him find the back of the net at some point, but at just 21 years old, there's still plenty of time for Jones to add to his skill set as he develops.

News
Korpisalo made 33 saves in Saturday's 4-2 victory over Ottawa.

Korpisalo has been a strong play lately -- he's won four of his last five starts and is 4-0-1 in that span. And he's allowed two or fewer goals in four of those five. He's always been a technically-sound twinetender with strong instincts. But right now, Korpisalo is playing a bit over his head. There's nothing wrong with that -- we'd take full advantage of this run. Just use caution in keeper formats -- he's not quite as good as he's showing right now.
