  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Two helpers against Habs

    Voracek collected two assists, one on the power play, in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Canadiens.

    The veteran winger was part of a dynamite night for Columbus' top two lines, as all six players recorded multi-point performances. Voracek remains quietly productive no matter who he's skating with, picking up two goals and 11 points over the last 13 games.

    Voracek logged a power-play assist, two shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets.

    Voracek had the secondary helper on Oliver Bjorkstrand's tally late in the third period. The 32-year-old Voracek has a goal and three power-play helpers in five games since he returned from a lower-body injury that cost him one contest.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Good to go

    Voracek is over his lower-body injury and will play Wednesday in Ottawa, Dave Maetzold of Bally Sports Ohio reports.

    Voracek missed one game with the injury, sitting out Sunday against Vegas. The veteran is no worse for wear, though, and he will look to build on his 43 points in 57 games when he rejoins the lineup Wednesday.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Won't play Sunday

    Voracek (lower body) will not play Sunday against Vegas and remains day-to-day, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

    Voracek suffered the injury late in Friday's win over Minnesota, and it's serious enough to keep him out at least one game. The 32-year-old will have another few days to recover in advance of Wednesday's game in Ottawa.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Leaves after dirty hit

    Voracek suffered a lower-body injury late in the third period of Friday's 3-2 shootout win over the Wild and did not return, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    With the Blue Jackets down 2-1 and Elvis Merzlikins pulled for an extra attacker, Voracek skated up the ice with a head of steam only to get tripped by Marcus Foligno and sent sprawling. Voracek was able to skate to the bench under his own power afterward, but he appeared to be in a great deal of pain after the trip and coach Brad Larsen had no update on his condition after the contest. With Patrik Laine (knee) also getting banged up in overtime, the Jackets could be down two key offensive contributors Sunday against the Golden Knights.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Produces 40th assist

    Voracek notched an assist in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Voracek's 40th assist came on a Patrik Laine tally in the third period. In his last 10 games, Voracek has continued his role as the Blue Jackets' top playmaker with a goal and 10 assists. The 32-year-old winger has 43 points in 55 outings, matching his output from 53 contests last season.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Two points in win

    Voracek produced a power-play goal along with an assist on the man advantage in Saturday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Bruins.

    Though Columbus fell short Saturday, Voracek at least helped the team earn a point in the standings by finding the net with 1.8 seconds remaining in the third period. The snipe from above the left circle ended a 10-game goal drought for the 32-year-old.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Keeps piling up apples

    Voracek dished out two assists - one on the power play - in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Devils.

    Voracek has distributed 12 assists in his last 12 games, and he's also scored one goal over that stretch, which accounts for half of his season goal total. While Voracek's best scoring days appear to be behind him at age 32, the Czech winger's still an elite playmaker.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Two-point night in win

    Voracek notched two assists in Thursday's win over the Panthers.

    He had the lone helper on two key tallies for the Blue Jackets, setting up Patrik Laine for Columbus' first goal of the night in the first period and then feeding Cole Sillinger for the eventual game-winner in the third. Voracek has at least one point in four straight games and eight of the last nine, and on the season the veteran winger is up to 37 points -- two goals and 35 assists -- through 49 contests.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Grabs power-play assist

    Voracek notched a power-play assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Blackhawks.

    Voracek's shot attempt led to a rebound for Boone Jenner to bury at 6:58 of the first period. The 32-year-old Voracek has racked up a goal and five assists (four on the power play) in his last six games -- he was only held off the scoresheet Tuesday in Calgary in that span. The winger is up to 33 points (15 on the power play), 87 shots on net and a minus-8 rating through 46 appearances overall.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Nets just second goal of season

    Voracek scored and added an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over Buffalo.

    Voracek gained speed through the neutral zone before wiring a wrister from the top of the right circle that beat Dustin Tokarski just 16 seconds into the extra frame. It was just his second goal in 43 games this season and first since Nov. 13. Despite Voracek's low goal output, he has 29 points in 42 games and is riding a three-game, four-point scoring streak.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Stymied in blowout

    Voracek took five shots in a 6-0 loss to the Flames on Wednesday.

    Voracek did his best to try and match the breakneck pace of the Flames, but it was not meant to be. The left winger has really lost his touch in the goal scoring department, with just one goal and 26 assists in 38 games this season. His last goal came all the way back on Nov. 13.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Adds another assist

    Voracek provided an assist in a 2-1 loss to the Senators on Sunday.

    Voracek is up to two assists over his last three games since returning from COVID-19 protocols. The 32-year-old has struggled to score goals over the last three seasons, but he's been valuable as a setup man. The left winger sits at one goal and 26 assists in 37 games.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Ready to return

    Voracek will be activated off the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list and return to action Thursday versus Philadelphia, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Voracek is expected to return to a featured role following his two-game absence, skating on the Blue Jackets' second line and top power-play unit against the Flyers. The 32-year-old vet has racked up 25 points through 34 contests this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Set to miss out Thursday

    Voracek (COVID-19 protocols) is not expected to be in the lineup against the Flyers on Thursday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Considering the Jackets are heading into a back-to-back, it seems unlikely Voracek will be ready to play versus Pittsburgh on Friday either, though he hasn't been officially ruled out. While goals have been hard to come by for the 32-year-old winger, he remains on pace to get back over the 60-point threshold for the first time since 2018-19.

  • Blue Jackets' Jakub Voracek: Placed in protocols

    Voracek entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday.

    Voracek will need to provide two negative COVID-19 tests before rejoining the Blue Jackets, so he'll miss Thursday's clash with Carolina at a minimum. With Voracek sidelined, look for Alexandre Texier (not injury related) to draw into the lineup against the Hurricanes.
