Top Gavin Bayreuther News

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Playing Saturday

    Bayreuther (undisclosed) is in the lineup for Saturday's game versus Montreal, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    Bayreuther exited Thursday's win over the Sabres with an undisclosed injury, but whatever forced him from that contest evidently wasn't overly serious. The 27-year-old defender, who's picked up seven assists through 25 games this year, will skate on the third pairing against the Canadiens.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Exits Thursday's game

    Bayreuther (undisclosed) left Thursday's game versus the Sabres in the third period and will be evaluated further Friday, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

    Bayreuther missed a check and went hard into the boards early in the third period. Head coach Brad Larsen noted that the defenseman was "in good spirits" after the contest, but he'll need to be checked out further. Consider the 27-year-old day-to-day ahead of Saturday's matinee in Montreal.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Dishes assist

    Bayreuther added an assist in a 8-4 loss to the Panthers on Monday.

    Bayreuther is without a goal in 23 contests this season but does have seven assists, with two of those coming in back-to-back games. The 27-year-old is not much of a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues at this point.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Garners helper

    Bayreuther logged an assist, two shots on net and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Canadiens.

    Bayreuther set up Jack Roslovic on the go-ahead goal 8:39 into the first period. The 27-year-old Bayreuther is hardly a lock for the lineup, though he's played in five of the last six games and could get a longer look after Jake Bean (lower body) exited Sunday's contest. Bayreuther is up to six helpers, 23 shots on net, 29 hits, 15 PIM and a plus-1 rating in a career-high 22 appearances this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Exits COVID-19 protocols

    Bayreuther cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Sunday, per Aaron Portzline of The Athletic.

    Bayreuther will be eligible to play in Tuesday's contest against Chicago. He will likely take the ice next in a third-pairing role. The 27-year-old has tallied five assists and averaged 14:08 of ice time this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Bayreuther was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Wednesday.

    Bayreuther's status for Thursday's contest with Nashville is currently in doubt. The 27-year-old has logged one assist through his five December appearances.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Nabs helper in Friday's win

    Bayreuther recorded an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Friday's 4-2 win over the Canucks.

    Bayreuther has effectively supplanted Scott Harrington as an everyday presence in the lineup. Through 10 appearances, Bayreuther has picked four assists, though they've all been earned in the last seven games. He's added 13 shots, 15 hits, 15 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in a third-pairing role. Despite the solid offense recently, Bayreuther is unlikely to sustain this pace throughout the season.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Helpers in consecutive games

    Bayreuther produced an assist, three hits and two PIM in Monday's 5-3 win over the Red Wings.

    Bayreuther has picked up assists in each of the last two contests, which certainly won't hurt his chances of staying in the lineup. He's played in five games since the start of November, logging five shots on net, seven hits, seven blocked shots and six PIM in a bottom-pairing role. The 27-year-old is hardly a threat for consistent offense, so he's unlikely to be a factor in fantasy.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Recalled to NHL

    Bayreuther was promoted from AHL Cleveland on Tuesday.

    Bayreuther will join the roster with Dean Kukan (wrist) going on injured reserve. The 27-year-old blueliner has scored three points in five games with AHL Cleveland this season. He'll likely be a healthy scratch with the big club.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Headed for waivers

    Bayreuther was waived by the Jackets on Monday in order to move him to the minors, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    Bayreuther played in just nine games for Columbus last season and was always going to be a long shot for the Opening Night roster. Still, the New Hampshire native should remain on the shortlist of potential call-ups, especially if he can continue to produce offensively at the minor-league level.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Returns to Columbus

    Bayreuther signed a two-year, $1.5 million contract with the Blue Jackets on Wednesday. The first year of the deal is two-way, while the second year is one-way.

    The 27-year-old defenseman came back to his previous organization after the Kraken selected him but didn't sign him ahead of unrestricted free agency. Bayreuther had 12 points in 14 contests with AHL Cleveland last year, and he added one goal in nine games with the Blue Jackets. He could compete for a bottom-pairing job in training camp.

  • Kraken's Gavin Bayreuther: Headed to Seattle

    Bayreuther will be selected by the Kraken in Wednesday night's Expansion Draft, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    There were plenty of more attractive Blue Jackets options available to Seattle than Bayreuther, who appeared in just nine NHL games last season, potting one goal over that span, so this selection comes as a bit of a surprise. Bayreuther will likely get into a few games with Seattle in 2021-22, but he'll almost certainly spend the majority of the campaign in the minors.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Sent to AHL

    Bayreuther was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Saturday.

    The New Hampshire native lit the lamp Friday, but that was Bayreuther's only point in nine NHL games this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Set to make CBJ debut

    Bayreuther has been promoted from the taxi squad and will make his Blue Jackets debut Monday in Florida, Blue Jackets insider Jeff Svoboda reports.

    Bayreuther has 19 games of NHL experience under his belt, all of which came with Dallas in the 2018-19 campaign. He has decent offensive instincts and could provide value as a bargain bin DFS option, as Bayreuther has produced at a point-per-game pace in 10 appearances with AHL Cleveland this season.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Rises to taxi squad

    Bayreuther was promoted to the Blue Jackets' taxi squad Saturday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

    Bayreuther hasn't appeared in an NHL game since 2018-19 and isn't expected to crack Columbus' lineup anytime soon.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Sent to AHL

    Bayreuther was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Friday.

    Bayreuther has yet to appear in a game for the Blue Jackets this season. All 19 of his NHL appearances came with the Stars in 2018-19.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Ascends to taxi squad

    Bayreuther was promoted to Columbus' taxi squad Friday.

    Bayreuther has appeared in two AHL contests this season, going scoreless while posting a minus-2 rating. The 26-year-old American will likely spend most of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors or on the taxi squad.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Placed on waivers

    Bayreuther was placed on waivers Monday, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

    The 26-year-old defenseman is on a two-way contract but needs to clear waivers to be assigned to AHL Cleveland. Bayreuther saw the only NHL action of his career in 2018-19, playing 19 games for the Stars, and he's unlikely to add to that total this season working behind a deep Jackets blue line.

  • Blue Jackets' Gavin Bayreuther: Joins Blue Jackets

    Bayreuther signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Blue Jackets on Friday.

    Bayreuther joins a crowded blue line and will likely begin next season with AHL Cleveland. The 26-year-old played in the AHL last season and recorded 29 points over 59 games, but he does have 19 games of NHL experience under his belt.

  • Stars' Gavin Bayreuther: Drops down to minors

    Bayreuther was reassigned to AHL Texas and will suit up versus AHL Manitoba on Monday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

    In a weird scheduling quirk, the minor-league affiliates for Dallas and Winnipeg are in action Monday, so the organization made the decision to leave Bayreuther in Winnipeg so he could play an extra game. The blueliner will likely meet back up with the club ahead of Wednesday's clash with Calgary in order to provide emergency depth.
