Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Manages apple in rout
Peeke recorded an assist to complement three blocked shots in Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Canadiens.
Peeke snapped a 10-game point drought with the helper and endured 21:13 of ice time in a game that couldn't end fast enough for the Blue Jackets. The American has collected five goals and six assists through 70 games; those numbers won't excite fantasy managers, but he does have 157 hits and 173 blocked shots to sharpen his defensive profile....

Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Scores Tuesday
Peeke scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Capitals.
Peeke got Columbus on the board late in the first period, firing a shot from the point that Charlie Lindgren couldn't handle. It's Peeke's first goal in eight games and his first point in four. The 24-year-old blueliner has played a fairly consistent top-paring role in Columbus this season but has yet to produce much offensively, with five goals and three assists through 49 games. He has added some physicality with 105 hits and 100 blocked shots.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Snaps eight-game scoring drought
Peeke scored a goal in Columbus' 3-1 loss to the Rangers on Monday.
Peeke found the back of the net at 1:21 of the third period to narrow the Rangers' lead to 3-1, but Columbus wasn't able to chip away at New York's edge any further. It was his fourth goal and sixth point in 41 games this season. The 24-year-old was held off the scoresheet in his previous eight outings.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Four hits in win over Canes
Peeke recorded four hits and a minus-1 rating in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over Carolina.
After being a healthy scratch for the last game of 2022 and the first game of 2023, Peeke has drawn back into the Blue Jackets' lineup and seen significant ice time over the last two contests, including a team-high 25:16 on Saturday. The 24-year-old offers little offensive upside with three goals and five points over 36 games this season, but his 77 hits and 69 blocked shots highlight his value to Columbus as a stay-at-home defender....

Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Struggling to make impact
Peeke has only one point, an assist, over his last 11 games with seven shots on goal and a minus-11 rating.
The 24-year-old blueliner does have 20 hits and 30 blocked shots during that stretch, but his physical play isn't making up for his poor defensive numbers. Peeke hasn't seen increased playing time in the wake of injuries to Zach Werenski (shoulder) and Jake Bean (shoulder), and he will likely need to elevate his game if he wants to take advantage of those opportunities....

Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Collects first marker
Peeke scored what proved to be the game-winner Sunday as the Blue Jackets cruised past the Rangers 5-1.
Peeke, who entered Sunday with just three goals in 121 NHL games, provided a rare dose of offense. The 24-year-old blueliner notched his first goal of the season and added a plus-2 rating, two hits and two blocks in 24:13 of ice time. After opening the season with a minus-5 rating during the Blue Jackets' first two games, Peeke is a plus-8 over his last five outings.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Grabs three-year extension
Peeke inked a three-year, $8.25 million contract with Columbus on Wednesday.
Peeke played in all 82 games for the Jackets last season in which he recorded two goals on 72 shots, 13 assists and 191 hits while averaging 21:28 of ice time. While the 24-year-old blueliner could see an uptick in ice time this upcoming season, he is unlikely to be a significant factor on the power play, which will limit his offensive upside....

Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Nabs helper in loss
Peeke posted an assist, three hits, two blocked shots and two shots on goal in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Peeke snapped his 14-game point drought with a helper on Oliver Bjorkstrand's second-period marker. The 23-year-old Peeke has seen a top-pairing role since mid-January, though he's more of a physical defenseman. He's at 11 points, 45 shots on net, 136 hits, 119 blocks and a minus-13 rating through 57 appearances. With Jake Bean (groin) back in the fold, Peeke will need to maintain a decent level of play to avoid a return to a bottom-four role.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Solidifying spot on top pairing
Peeke is 20th in the NHL in average ice time (24:44 per game) since being slotted alongside Zach Werenski on the Blue Jackets' top pairing, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
While Peeke hasn't been productive in traditional fantasy categories during that stretch -- only one assist in 13 games with a minus-7 rating -- he's been an effective physical complement to Werenski, recording 26 hits and 32 blocked shots. The 23-year-old Peeke was a second-round pick in the 2016 Draft, and while he'll likely never be an asset on the offensive end, he's developing into a formidable stay-at-home defender....

Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Records helper in win
Peeke produced an assist, two hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Canadiens.
Peeke set up Cole Sillinger's third-period insurance tally. The assist ended a five-game point drought for Peeke, who continues to grow into a top-four role as a defensive presence. He's at 10 points, 104 hits, 80 blocked shots, 28 PIM and a minus-6 rating in 42 contests this season. The second-round pick from 2016 will likely need to do more on offense to draw widespread fantasy interest.... See More ... See Less

Peeke delivered three hits in a 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks on Tuesday.
Peeke has racked up 23 hits over his last six games. Through 34 games, the 23-year-old has eight points and 80 hits, both career highs.... See More ... See Less

Peeke was designated for the COVID-19 protocols Monday.

Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Scores first goal of season
Peeke scored an empty-net goal in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Jets.
The 23-year-old blueliner slid home his first tally of the season to cap a big win for the Jackets. Peeke is on a bit of a heater, picking up three points in the last five games, and while he doesn't see any meaningful power-play time, his spot on a pairing with Zach Werenski at even strength does give him some deep-league fantasy appeal. Peeke also has 13 PIM, 28 hits, 28 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating through 17 games.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Posts assist in win
Peeke notched an assist and four hits in Monday's 5-3 win over the Red Wings.
Peeke collected the secondary helper on Boone Jenner's second-period tally. Through 13 contests, Peeke has three assists, matching his output from 11 games last year. The 23-year-old has added 24 hits, 23 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating this year, so there's little reason for fantasy managers to keep a close eye on his progress.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Logs helper Wednesday
Peeke produced an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche.
Peeke earned the secondary helper on a Jake Bean goal in the second period. The assist was Peeke's second point this season and his first since Opening Night. The 23-year-old blueliner has been limited to a bottom-four role, adding two shots on net, 18 blocked shots, 10 hits and a minus-2 rating in nine appearances. He's recorded three points in each of his previous two NHL campaigns, but a full-time role this year makes it likely he'll easily top that mark.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Grabs two-year deal
Peeke penned a two-year, $1.575 million contract with Columbus on Monday.
Peeke played in just 11 games for the Jackets this season in which he registered three assists, 35 hits and five shots while averaging 17:09 of ice time. Given the one-way nature of the deal, Peeke should be expected to remain in the NHL but may have to spend time in the press box as a healthy scratch.... See More ... See Less

Blue Jackets' Andrew Peeke: Sent to AHL
Peeke was assigned to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.
Peeke had played in the last six games for Columbus, but coach John Tortorella cut his ice time to under 11 minutes in the team's last contest, suggesting he had lost confidence in the 22-year-old defenseman. He'll likely remain among the top call-up options should injuries befall the Blue Jackets' blue line, but Peeke will have a chance to work on his game at the AHL level in the meantime....
