Blue Jackets' Sean Kuraly: Pots 10th goal of season
Kuraly scored a goal on three shots on net and added seven hits, two PIM and a plus-1 rating in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

Kuraly remains a checking-line stalwart for Columbus and has racked up 136 hits and 50 PIM on the season, but the 30-year-old doesn't supply much offense. He has only three points, all goals, over 18 games since the beginning of January, giving him 10 goals and 14 points through 51 contests.... See More ... See Less

Blue Jackets' Sean Kuraly: Scores sixth goal of 2022-23
Kuraly netted a goal in Columbus' 5-3 win against Florida on Sunday.
Kuraly has contributed at least one goal in four of his last six contests. He's up to six goals and nine points in 16 games this season. What makes his recent hot streak even more encouraging is that it's corresponded with an increase in playing time. Kuraly averaged just 12:36 of ice time over his first 12 games, but that jumped to 16:01 in three contests from Nov. 15-19. He then logged 19:37 on Sunday, which is a new season high for him. The 29-year-old forward hasn't recorded more than 30 points in a single season, so it's best to temper expectations, but his recent jump in ice time certainly makes things interesting....

He averaged just 12:36 of ice time in his first 12 contests this season, but he logged 16:20 on Tuesday and 16:20 again Thursday.

Kuraly (undisclosed) will be re-evaluated Tuesday after taking an elbow to the head in Saturday's loss to the Avalanche, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
The checking center ended up sitting out the third period of the loss, and the lengthy delay in getting checked out likely has something to do with the Blue Jackets wanting to wait until the they got back home from their trip to Finland.
