Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Signs four-year extension
Laine signed a four-year, $34.8 million contract extension with the Blue Jackets on Friday, PuckPedia reports.
Laine bounced back in a big way in 2021-22 after struggling mightily in 2020-21, racking up 26 goals, 56 points and 167 shots while averaging 18:50 of ice time through 56 contests. He's dealt with injuries over the past three campaigns, but as long as he's able to remain relatively healthy, the 24-year-old sniper should be able to eclipse the 30-goal and 60-point marks with relative ease while firing a ton of shots on net in 2022-23....

Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Still in Jackets' plans
Laine is still a player the Blue jackets would like to sign to an extension, even after the team added Johnny Gaudreau in free agency, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Wednesday's signings of Gaudreau and defenseman Erik Gudbranson chewed up a large part of the Jackets' cap space, but that doesn't mean they're walking away from trying to keep Laine as well. The restricted free agent is looking for a big contract of his own, and the eight-year, $68 million extension Filip Forsberg got from the Predators has been cited as a comparable, but the addition of Gaudreau to the roster makes Columbus more competitive and might encourage Laine to stick around, even if he has to take a slightly smaller deal to do it. GM Jarmo Kekalainen will likely have to trade at least one of Gustav Nyquist ($5.5 million AAV) or Oliver Bjorkstrand ($5.4 million AAV) to clear space for Laine.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Will be healthy for 2022-23
Laine (upper body) is slated to be available for training camp ahead of the 2022-23 season general manager Jarmo Kekalainen told reporters Tuesday, per Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers.
Laine missed the final seven games of the NHL season due to his upper-body issue, playing in just 56 games this year. After managing just 12 goals in 2020-21, Laine got back over the 25-goal threshold for the fifth time in his six-year NHL career. If he can log a full 82-game season, Laine should be capable of getting back to being a top-end fantasy produce and offensive contributor.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Point-per-game pace
Laine (upper body) will remain sidelined for Friday's season finale against the Penguins, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
A seven-game absence heading into restricted free agency isn't what Laine envisioned, but he certainly built up his value before then by producing exactly one point per game in 56 appearances. The 24-year-old Finn will likely land a long-term deal this offseason, whether it's in Columbus or elsewhere due to an offer sheet or trade.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Not returning Thursday
Laine (upper body) is not in the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Lightning, per the NHL media site.
Laine will miss his sixth straight game, and it seems unlikely at this point that he'll play in Friday's season finale versus the Penguins. If he doesn't play, he'll end the season with 26 goals and 56 points in 56 outings. The Finn is a pending restricted free agent with arbitration rights this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Still out of action
Laine (upper body) will not play Tuesday versus the Lightning, per the NHL media site.
Laine is set for his fifth straight absence with the injury. At this point, it's unclear if he'll be available for either of the Blue Jackets' last two games -- since they're not going to the playoffs, it makes little sense to risk serious injury for the star winger.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Remains unavailable
Laine (upper body) won't play Friday versus Ottawa, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Laine will miss a third straight contest with his upper-body injury, and the Blue Jackets have yet to release an expected timetable for his recovery. Columbus only has four games remaining on its schedule following Friday's contest, so it's possible Laine won't return this season.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Still sidelined
Laine (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus San Jose, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Laine will miss a second straight contest with his upper-body issue. The Blue Jackets have yet to release an expected timetable for his return, so for now, the Finnish forward should probably be considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's matchup with Ottawa.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Out Sunday
Laine (upper body) will not be available Sunday against Anaheim.
Laine was a late scratch ahead of Sunday's tilt and it's unclear how severe the injury is. The 23-year-old winger has tallied 26 goals and 56 points through 56 games this season. An update on his status should be available before Tuesday's contest in San Jose.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Three points against Habs
Laine scored a power-play goal and added two even-strength assists in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Canadiens.
His efforts led the Blue Jackets to a 3-0 lead late in the second period. Laine isn't lighting the lamp as often as he was earlier this season, but he's still been plenty productive with four goals and 14 points over the last 15 games.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Provides two helpers in loss

Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: White hot goal ways continue
Laine scored a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 5-3 win over St. Louis.
He pushed the lead to 3-1 at 3:52 of the second on a snap shot from the low right circle. It was his 25th goal of the season. Laine has scored 19 goals in the past 23 games dating back to Jan. 27, and he's riding a four-game, six-point scoring streak (three goals, three assists). Laine's gamble of accepting Columbus' $7.5 million qualifying offer before the season is paying off in a huge way, as he's setting himself up for a substantial raise this offseason.... See More ...

Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Two helpers against Ottawa
Laine picked up two assists in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Senators.
The 23-year-old continues to produce at a superstar pace. Through eight games in March, Laine has racked up four goals and nine points, and even the loss of usual center Boone Jenner (back) hasn't slowed him down -- Laine has a goal and three points over the last two games while skating on a line with Jack Roslovic....

Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Will play Sunday
Laine (knee) will play Sunday against Vegas, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Laine's knee -- that he's had surgery on multiple times -- was banged up in Friday's shootout win over Minnesota. Thankfully, though, he's no worse for wear and won't be forced to miss any time. With 42 points in 40 games, the 23-year-old is scoring at the best rate of his six-year NHL career.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Exits late with knee injury
Laine left Friday's 3-2 shootout win over the Wild in overtime with what appeared to be a knee injury, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Coach Brad Larsen had no updates on Laine after the game, saying only, "Just hoping for the best here." The 23-year-old suffered a non-contact injury and glided to the bench on one leg before heading directly to the dressing room. With Jakub Voracek also sustaining a lower-body injury in the contest, the Blue Jackets could be down two key offensive contributors for Sunday's tilt against the Golden Knights.... See More ...

Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Tallies late in loss
Laine scored a goal on six shots in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Laine struck with 48 seconds left in the third period, but the Blue Jackets weren't able to find an equalizer. The 23-year-old winger continues to light the lamp at an impressive pace with 16 goals in his last 16 outings. He's up to 22 tallies, 42 points, 112 shots on net and a plus-1 rating in 38 appearances overall. The recent surge has Laine on track to reach the 30-goal mark for the first time since 2018-19....
