  • Werenski put up 41 points in 63 games prior to the league suspending play in mid-March. The blueliner's return to the 40-plus-point plateau shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as Werenski has now achieved that feat in three of his four NHL campaigns. What really stands out are his 20 goals, which are tops among all NHL defensemen and a notable uptick from his previous career-best 16 (in 14 additional games) back in 2017-18. The 22-year-old has also received a career high in even-strength and power-play ice time (23:59 and 2:44), which furthers his status as one of the game's top back-end fantasy assets -- not to mention the fact that he's now the clear-cut preferred option in Columbus ahead of Seth Jones.

  • Werenski pocketed an assist and fired a team-high eight shots on goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Oilers. Werenski set up Gustav Nyquist on a breakaway for the Blue Jackets' only goal of the game. The 22-year-old defenseman has posted two goals and three assists in his last six outings. Werenski is up to 20 goals, 41 points, 187 shots and a plus-9 rating through 62 appearances this season.

  • Werenski scored a goal on four shots and had an assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Canucks. Werenski is up to 40 points and needs just eight more to surpass his previous career high, set in his rookie season. The 23-year-old also moved to within two points of tying his power-play point total from a year ago (15). Columbus will now hit the road for three games out west beginning with the Flames on Wednesday.

  • Werenski scored a goal on five shots in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to Minnesota. He also logged a team-leading 26:41 of ice time. Werenski tallied his first goal in the last five games, scoring with 3:06 remaining in regulation to pull the Blue Jackets to within 5-4. The goal was Werenski's 19th of the season, extending his career high, and gave him 38 points in 58 games. He can still challenge the career-high 47 points he had as a rookie in 2016-17.

  • Werenski posted an assist, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators. Werenski's shot produced a rebound in overtime, leading to the winning tally from Emil Bemstrom. In February, Werenski has three goals and four helpers in 13 games. He's averaged nearly 25 minutes per outing, which helps to fill the void left by Seth Jones (ankle). Werenski has 37 points, 166 shots, 53 blocks and a plus-10 rating in 57 contests this season.
