    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Provides helper

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Stuck in press box

    Alexander Wennberg wasn't traded by Monday's deadline, but he'll be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's clash with the Penguins, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.Wennberg will be a spectator for a third straight game, and Columbus Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella sounds rather non-committal about how Wennberg -- who makes $4.9 million annually and is signed through 2022-23 -- fits into the plans following the team's trade acquisitions of Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel. "I'm not gonna say what happens to Wenny," Tortorella said. "He could be a big part of this before it's all said and done. I'm not sure how it all works out." Wennberg's confidence appears to be squashed this season; he only has two goals and 23 points, while posting fewer shots (55) than games played (59).

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Held out again

    Alexander Wennberg will sit out for a second straight game Saturday against the Sharks. This is based on Jeff Svoboda of Jackets Insider's report that there will be no other lineup changes for Columbus from the previous game, aside from goalie Sergei Bobrovksy getting the home start.Wennberg remains a healthy scratch, but the reason for this is a bit of a mystery. It's possible that a trade is brewing, but we can also see John Tortorella wanting to send the Swede a message with the forward having been held without a point for six straight games. Either way, fantasy owners shouldn't have Wennberg in Saturday's DFS lineup.

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Healthy scratch Friday

    Alexander Wennberg will be a healthy scratch for Friday's game against the Senators, Tom Reed of The Athletic reports.The Columbus Blue Jackets have yet to release any details regarding the circumstances surrounding Wennberg's exclusion from the lineup, but it's quite possible they may be in discussions with another club to move him ahead of Monday's trade deadline. The 24-year-old pivot hasn't been great this season, notching 23 points in 59 games, and Columbus can certainly afford to part ways with him after acquiring Matt Duchene from the Senators on Friday.

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Busts out of slump

    Alexander Wennberg earned an assist over 19:38 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Jets.Wennberg's assist snapped an eight-game pointless streak. The Swede's season had already seen its fair share of struggles, but Wennberg hadn't scored a point since Jan. 8 and has only scored one goal over 50 contests this season. The center also saw 4:09 of power-play ice time, the fourth-most he's seen in a game this year.

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Struggles continue

    Alexander Wennberg failed to record a point for the sixth straight game in Friday's loss to the Canadiens.The 24-year-old center just can't get anything going this season. Wennberg has only five points -- all helpers -- in 22 games since the beginning of December despite averaging 2:04 with the man advantage during that stretch. Even that source of potential offense has started to dry up, as he's seen more than two minutes of power-play time only once in his last 11 contests. The promise he showed in 2016-17, when he scored a career-high 13 goals and 59 points, seems to be slipping away, but the club won't give up too quickly on the 2013 first-round pick.

    Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Only one goal on season

    Alexander Wennberg has only one goal on 35 shots through 36 games this season, though he does have 16 assists.Wennberg has always been a playmaker first, even in his breakout campaign where he scored 13 goals and added 46 assists. However, his goal scoring is down even by his own standards. The Swede has a 2.9 shooting percentage which seems likely to improve, but the emergence of Pierre-Luc Dubois has led to Wennberg taking on a smaller role. We may have already seen his peak as a player.
