Top Jake Bean News

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Puts away goal Saturday

    Bean scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Bean converted off a turnover created by Yegor Chinakhov's takeaway. With five points over his last 13 outings, Bean has at least put up respectable offense for a bottom-four defenseman lately. He's at eight points, 61 shots on net, 66 blocked shots and a minus-12 rating through 45 appearances, so most fantasy managers can do better for their defensive depth.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Gets rare point

    Bean scored a goal Thursday in a 3-2 shootout win over the Flyers.

    Bean has three points, including two goals, in his last five games after wallowing through a 26-game point drought. But he also got danced by Travis Konecny on one of the Philly goals, exposing his defensive limits. Bean has the skating and offensive skills to contribute fantasy points, but at 25, he's yet to play a full NHL season. Don't over-invest. That drought is still too fresh.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Point drought at 23 games

    Bean recorded two blocked shots, a shot on net and a hit in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Panthers.

    The 25-year-old blueliner continues to draw a regular shift for Columbus with Damon Severson (oblique) and Adam Boqvist (shoulder) both on injured reserve, but Bean hasn't done much with his opportunities. He's gone 23 games without registering a point, last getting onto a scoresheet with an assist Oct. 24 against the Ducks. During that drought, he's recorded 30 blocked shots, 25 shots on goal, 10 PIM, eight hits and a minus-7 rating. Despite his pedigree as the 13th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, Bean has never been able to make an impact in the NHL, and he seems unlikely to be brought back as a restricted free agent next season given his current $2.3 million salary.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Bends twine Thursday

    Bean scored a goal on two shots versus the Flyers on Thursday.

    Bean managed just one goal in 14 matches last season, so fantasy players shouldn't expect him to start scoring with regularity. Still, during the 2021-22 campaign, the blueliner played significantly more games (67) and racked up seven goals over that stretch.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Ready to return

    Bean (shoulder) is expected to play in Wednesday's preseason game against Buffalo.

    Bean will make his 2023 exhibition debut after being out with an abductor strain since the beginning of training camp. He produced six points, 16 shots on goal, 21 blocked shots and 13 hits in 14 games with the Blue Jackets last season. Bean is competing for a depth spot on the roster going into the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Considered week-to-week

    Bean (shoulder) is regarded as week-to-week as training camp begins, per Aaron Portzline of The Athletic.

    Bean recorded a goal and six points in 14 games in 2022-23. He hasn't played since Nov. 15, 2022 because of the injury.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Gets back on the ice

    Bean (shoulder) has resumed skating as he recovers from late November surgery to repair a torn labrum, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    The 24-year-old blueliner had a goal and six points in 14 games before being injured. Bean wasn't considered likely to play again this season when he went under the knife, but Blue Jackets coach Brad Larsen didn't offer a clear answer Thursday when asked if the defenseman might return before the team's regular-season finale in April. It's possible Bean's recovery goes well enough that he's able to get back into the lineup for a handful of games.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Undergoes shoulder surgery

    Bean (torn labrum) had successful shoulder surgery and will miss the next 4-6 months.

    Bean had the surgery Nov. 23 and could miss the rest of the season. The defenseman had a goal and five assists in 14 games prior to the injury.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Placed on injured reserve

    Bean (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    Bean is out indefinitely after being injured Tuesday in a win over Philadelphia. Bean has a goal and six points in 14 games this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Continuing to be evaluated

    Bean (upper body) is still being evaluated but coach Brad Larsen told reporters Thursday, "It doesn't look good," per Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch.

    Bean's absence would compound the Jackets' blueline problems considering Zach Werenski (shoulder) is done for the season and Adam Boqvist (foot) and Nick Blankenburg (ankle) are both out long-term as well. Prior to getting hurt, the 24-year-old Bean notched six points in 14 contests while averaging 15:42 of ice time. With Bean out as well, Marcus Bjork figures to see the biggest uptick in ice time, including a power-play role.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Sustains upper-body injury

    Bean suffered an upper-body injury and will not return to Tuesday's game versus the Flyers.

    Bean was injured in the second period, falling to the ice after taking a hit in the corner. The defenseman joins a lengthy list of injured Blue Jackets -- the team is already missing three of its regular blueliners. If Bean misses time, expect Gavin Bayreuther to enter the lineup and Vladislav Gavrikov to take on extra responsibility.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Returns to action

    Bean (illness) will return to the lineup Sunday afternoon against New Jersey, Mike Morreale of reports.

    Bean didn't play in Friday's loss to the Bruins because he was feeling under the weather. He has one goal and three assists in eight games this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Not playing Friday

    Bean (illness) will not play Friday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

    Bean has missed practice the last two days with the illness. His spot on the bottom-pairing will be taken by Gavin Bayreuther. Bean has a goal and four points in eight games in the 2022-23 season.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Misses practice Thursday

    Bean (illness) did not practice Thursday, per Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch.

    Bean has been productive in a bottom-paring role with Columbus to start the year, logging a goal and three assists in his last four games. The 24-year-old defenseman should be considered day-to-day in advance of Friday's matchup with the Bruins. Gavin Bayreuther would likely slot into the Jackets' third pairing should Bean miss time.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Two helpers in Tuesday's loss

    Bean recorded two assists in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Coyotes.

    Both points came in the third period as the Blue Jackets tried futilely to crawl out of the 5-0 hole they'd dug for themselves. After going scoreless through the first four games of the year, Bean now has a goal and four points in the last four contests, but his lack of consistent power-play time or secondary stats makes the 24-year-old blueliner tough to roster in most fantasy formats.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Sparks slow-starting team

    Bean scored the Blue Jackets' first goal Thursday, igniting a rally that ended with a 5-3 victory over the Predators.

    Bean, who entered Thursday with eight career goals, connected on a momentum-turning marker. With the Blue Jackets trailing 2-0, the 24-year-old defenseman scored off a rising, screened wrist shot. The second-period goal came on his third shot of the season.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Manages assist Tuesday

    Bean posted an assist, three shots on net, two hits and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

    Bean wrapped up the Blue Jackets' three-game California trip with two goals and an assist, though the team went winless in that stretch. The 23-year-old defenseman has earned 23 points, 85 shots on net, 69 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating in 62 outings this season. He'll likely see a solid role in the top four as long as Zach Werenski (upper body) remains out.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Scores twice in loss

    Bean scored two goals and added four hits in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Ducks.

    Bean tallied the Blue Jackets' first two goals in the game, but they couldn't keep pace with the hosts. In 20 games since Bean returned from a groin injury, he's earned three goals and four assists while mostly seeing a bottom-four role. He could be in line for a larger role to close the season after Zach Werenski (upper body) was knocked out of Sunday's game in the first period. Bean has 22 points, 82 shots on net, 67 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating through 61 appearances.

  • Blue Jackets' Jake Bean: Off IR

    Bean (groin) was activated off injured reserve and will play Monday against Toronto, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    Bean has missed the last 14 games while dealing with a groin injury. The 23-year-old has averaged 21:14 of ice time and tallied 15 points over 41 appearances in 2021-22. Gavin Bayreuther is expected to see a reduced role upon Bean's return to the lineup, Portzline adds.
