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
Laine was credited with two assists and attempted five shots on goal Tuesday in the Blue Jackets' 4-3 loss to the Islanders.
Laine has now turned in 16 multi-point performances on the season, with five of those coming in March.... See More ... See Less
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....

Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Goal per game in last 14
Laine scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-3 win over New Jersey.
After assisting on Boone Jenner's second-period marker, Laine gave Columbus a 4-2 lead early in the third with his 14th goal in the last 14 games. That goal turned into the game-winner when New Jersey got one back later in the final frame. The sniper had been held without a point in each of the previous two games, but this performance proves that Laine's hot streak is still ongoing.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Longest active point streak in NHL
Laine scored a goal Thursday in a 6-3 win over Florida.
The goal extended his point streak to 11 games and 21 points, including 13 goals. It's the longest active streak in the NHL. Laine has resurrected his game this season and it's great to see -- he has goal-scoring talent that rivals Auston Matthews, but it has been some time since we've seen it.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Two goals including OT winner
Laine scored two goals, including the game-winner 20 seconds into overtime, in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over the Maple Leafs.
Both tallies went top corner over Jack Campbell's glove as Laine continues to make life miserable for opposition goaltenders. Over the last 10 games, the 23-year-old has delivered 12 goals and 20 points, re-emerging as the offensive catalyst the Blue Jackets hoped they were getting when they traded for him last season....

Blue Jackets' Patrik Laine: Extends point streak to nine games
Laine dished out two helpers in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Sabres.
Fourteen different Blue Jackets scored at least one point in this one, but Laine was one of only four to get on the scoresheet multiple times. The 23-year-old winger is arguably the hottest scorer in the league right now, having totaled 10 goals and 18 points during his nine-game point streak. If he continues to produce down the stretch, Laine will certainly secure a hefty payday as a restricted free agent this offseason.... See More ... See Less
