    Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Dishes on two man-advantage goals

    Zach Werenski doled out a pair of power-play assists in Thursday's 7-4 road win over the Blues.Werenski is certainly living up to his status as a first-round draft pick. The young skater -- whom the Columbus Blue Jackets took eighth overall in 2015 -- has started the new season with two goals and five assists over his first nine games, and he's delivered one goal and three helpers on the man advantage. There should be plenty more where this came from for Werenski, especially because he's averaging a career-high 24:24 of ice time in 2018-19.

    Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Four helpers in preseason win

    Zach Werenski picked up four assists in Friday's 7-6 preseason win over the Penguins.With Seth Jones (knee) out for 4-6 weeks, Werenski is going to have to carry the offensive load on the Jackets blue line, and the 21-year-old looked like he was more than up to the task in this one. Assuming he can stay healthy, expect a big increase on the 10 power-play points he scored last year, and perhaps his first 50-point campaign.

    Zach Werenski (shoulder) is hoping to suit up for Friday's preseason tilt against the Penguins, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.Werenski maintained that his priority is to be ready for the season, but getting in a tuneup match or two should help shake off the rust. The news rules the Michigan native out for Tuesday's clash with Buffalo.
