  • Blue Jackets' Matiss Kivlenieks: Emergency recall Monday

    The Blue Jackets recalled Kivlenieks from AHL Cleveland on an emergency basis Monday.

    Kivlenieks was sent back to the minors Sunday after Columbus activated Joonas Korpisalo off injured reserve. However, Elvis Merzlikins was knocked out of Monday's game with an undisclosed injury. It looks like Kivlenieks will back up Korpisalo for Tuesday's game in Minnesota.

  • Senators' Chris Tierney: Records assist

    Tierney managed an assist and three shots on goal in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Tierney set up Connor Brown for the first of his two goals in the game. The helper snapped a four-game point drought for Tierney, although his goal drought extended to 12 contests. The 25-year-old has compiled 31 points, 86 shots and a minus-5 rating through 63 outings this year.

  • Colin White C | OTT

    Senators' Colin White: Lights lamp Monday

    White scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    White's third-period tally gave the Senators a short-lived 3-2 lead. The forward also briefly left the game after a hard hit, but he was able to return before it ended. He's amassed 17 points, 75 shots and 32 PIM in 56 contests this season, far below the 41-point output he had in 2018-19.

  • Connor Brown RW | TOR

    Senators' Connor Brown: Strikes twice Monday

    Brown scored two goals on five shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Brown turned a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead with his pair of tallies, including a power-play goal in the second period. The 26-year-old has set a new career high in points with 38 (13 goals, 25 helpers) through 63 games. He's added 151 shots and a minus-5 rating this year. Brown can be useful in deeper fantasy formats as a top-line player who will likely be relied upon heavily by the Senators over the final six weeks of the season.

  • Senators' Marcus Hogberg: Peppered by pucks in OT loss

    Hogberg stopped 41 of 45 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    The Swedish goalie was busy in goal Monday. Hogberg couldn't make a pair of one-goal leads stand, and ultimately lost when Emil Bemstrom tallied for the Blue Jackets in overtime. The 25-year-old dropped to 3-7-8 with a 3.10 GAA and a .908 save percentage in 21 appearances. Wins have already been hard to come by in Ottawa, and a group of skaters depleted by the trade deadline will likely keep Hogberg from success down the stretch.

  • Kevin Stenlund RW | CLB

    Blue Jackets' Kevin Stenlund: Contributes assist Monday

    Stenlund picked up an assist and three shots on goal in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.

    The Swede posted the secondary helper on Stefan Matteau's game-tying goal in the third period. Stenlund has accumulated eight points, 44 shots and a minus-1 rating through 26 games. The second-round pick from 2015 probably won't produce enough for fantasy owners to add him.

  • Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Helps out in overtime

    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.

  • Blue Jackets' Scott Harrington: Sees shot tipped in

    Harrington managed an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.

    Harrington had a shot attempt in the third period which Stefan Matteau tipped in to tie the game at three. Offense has been hard to find for Harrington, who has six points, 33 shots and a minus-2 rating in 35 contests. When he's in the lineup, he's been mostly a third-pairing blueliner, which won't attract any fantasy attention.

  • Gustav Nyquist RW | DET

    Blue Jackets' Gustav Nyquist: Collects helper Monday

    Nyquist produced an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.

    The Swede has gone 11 games with a goal, but he has managed a modest four assists in that span. For the year, Nyquist has 38 points (12 tallies, 26 helpers), 132 shots and a plus-2 rating in 64 contests. He can provide fantasy owners with some depth offense given his first-line role in Columbus.

  • Blue Jackets' Vladislav Gavrikov: Finds helper

    Gavrikov notched an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.

    Gavrikov had the secondary assist on Nick Foligno's second-period tally. The Russian defenseman has assists in three straight games, which puts him at 16 points in 63 outings this year. he's added 76 shots, 83 blocked shots and 70 hits.
