Mayfield scored his first goal of the season and had three shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets. He also had two hits.
Mayfield made an aggressive pinch in the offensive zone and intercepted a breakout pass before beating Elvis Merzlikins with a backhander along the ice. The goal, Mayfield's first point of the year, broke a scoreless deadlock midway through the second period. The 29-year-old defenseman doesn't provide much offensive punch, having never topped five goals and 19 points in a season.
