Calvert notched an assist while adding two shots, a hit and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Capitals.
He now has six goals and 16 points in 41 games on the season. A move to the fourth line has kneecapped Calvert's ice time, and he's averaged less than 10 minutes a night over the last three games. His fantasy upside was limited anyway -- he's never scored more than 13 goals or 24 points in a campaign -- but if he sticks in his current role he may not even sniff those marks by year's end.
Calvert notched an assist with a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Stars.
He's got only four points (all assists) in his last 14 games, but the Calvert-Oliver Bjorkstrand-Lukas Sedlak line showed some life Tuesday by accounting for all of the Jackets' offense. If the trio continues to click for a Columbus squad that's been hammered by injuries to its forward ranks, Calvert's combination of speed and feistiness could allow him to take advantage of his increased ice time and opportunities.
Calvert picked up a shorthanded goal during Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
The 27-year-old forward found the stat sheet after missing the previous 12 contests with an upper-body injury. With four goals and nine points in 15 games, Calvert has some fantasy value to offer in deeper formats -- especially if he can stick with talented linemates like Alexander Wennberg and Cam Atkinson.
Calvert's missed Columbus' last 12 games due to an upper-body ailment, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the Blue Jackets ease him back into action Saturday against the Capitals. The 27-year-old forward has notched eight points (three goals, five assists) in 14 contests this season.
Calvert (upper body) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, The Columbus Dispatch reports.
He may be back in the lineup as soon as Saturday's game in Washington. Calvert doesn't have tremendous fantasy upside -- he's never scored more than 13 goals or 24 points in a season -- but he's an important part of the Jackets' penalty-kill unit and sees consistent ice time on a checking line when he's healthy.
