    Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Joining Team USA

    Zach Werenski was added to the Team USA roster for the 2019 IIHF World Championship, Jeff Svoboda of Jackets' Insider reports.Werenski ended the season on an eight-game goal drought, but should be able to add some offensive firepower to the Team USA blue line. The 21-year-old reached the 40-point threshold for the second time in his young career this season, including 15 power-play points. The Michigan native will be a restricted free agent this offseason and will garner a significant pay raise compared to hsi entry-level deal ($925,000).

Werenski has notched three points (one goal, two helpers), all with the man advantage, to help the Jackets jump out to a 2-0 lead, with the series now shifting back to Columbus on Sunday.

    Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Still goalless in 2019

    Zach Werenski picked up a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.Since lighting the lamp twice in a win over the Senators on Dec. 31, Werenski has been stuck on nine goals for the season, going 15 games without finding the back of the net. He's still picked up seven assists in that time, so he's maintaining a solid fantasy floor, but given his role on the Jackets' top power-play unit and knack for slipping shots through traffic, it seems only a matter of time before the young blueliner reaches double digits in goals for the third straight campaign.

Only a minus-10 rating hinders the third-year defender's fantasy value, but the 21-year-old should be a potent producer from the blue line for many years to come.
