  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Adds power-play tally in loss

    Marchenko scored a goal on a team-high five shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Rangers.

    Marchenko got Columbus on the board with a power-play marker in the first period, ripping a snapshot from the circle that snuck past Igor Shesterkin. The 22-year-old Marchenko has goals in back-to-back games and four in his last seven contests. He's shown some promise in his rookie season, tallying 20 goals and 23 points in 50 games. Marchenko could be a solid upside play down the stretch while skating alongside Boone Jenner and Johnny Gaudreau on the Jackets' top line.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Scores in loss

    Marchenko scored a goal on four shots in the Blue Jackets' 8-2 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday.

    Marchenko knotted the game at 2-2, scoring on a shot from a tight angle. The goal was Marchenko's third in his last six games, and he has scored four points in that span. On the season, Marchenko has 19 goals and 22 points in 49 games.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Breaks up shutout bid

    Marchenko scored a goal on four shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Kings.

    Marchenko had the Blue Jackets' only goal against Pheonix Copley, scoring at 4:31 of the third period. The 22-year-old Marchenko has been an effective finished this season, but he snapped a seven-game goal drought with his tally Thursday. For the season, he has 17 goals, two assists, 90 shots on net an a minus-11 rating through 44 appearances.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Lights lamp twice in win

    Marchenko scored two goals in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Oilers.

    The rookie continues to be the purest sniper in the league this season. Marchenko has an impressive 16 goals through his first 36 NHL games, but he's added only one helper to his ledger. The 22-year-old did have eight goals and 11 assists in 16 AHL games this year prior to his promotion, so his scoring should eventually balance itself out a bit, but for now Marchenko appears to be taking full advantage of an assignment alongside playmaking winger Johnny Gaudreau.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Two-point effort Saturday

    Marchenko scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Both points came in the second period as Marchenko kick-started the Blue Jackets' comeback from a 2-0 deficit. The helper was his first of the season, but the 22-year-old has an impressive 14 goals in his first 30 NHL games. That puts him second among rookies behind Matty Beniers' 17, and the Seattle freshman has played 20 more games this season. As long as Marchenko continues to skate on Columbus' top line with Johnny Gaudreau, he could well keep lighting the lamp on a regular basis.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Nets two power-play goals in loss

    Marchenko scored two power-play goals in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks.

    Marchenko continues to enjoy the Blue Jackets' current road trip -- he has four tallies over his last three games, and three of them have come on the power play. He was the only Columbus skater to solve Collin Delia in Friday's loss. Marchenko has 13 goals, including six on the power play, through 26 outings this season. He's added 48 shots on net, 20 hits, 18 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating, but he still has yet to notch an assist.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Goals in back-to-back games

    Marchenko scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

    Marchenko tied the game with a third-period tally. He's scored in back-to-back outings after going six games without a point. The 22-year-old winger's 11 goals and zero assists in 25 contests represent a stat line not seen for a rookie since 1926-27, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports. As long as he's scoring, Marchenko could have some fantasy appeal, but managers would probably prefer to see him round out his play.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Lights lamp Monday

    Marchenko scored a power-play goal on three shots and added two hits in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames.

    Marchenko converted on a Johnny Gaudreau pass at 9:04 of the second period to get the Blue Jackets on the board. The goal snapped a six-game point drought for Marchenko. He's at 10 goals through 24 contests, but he has yet to discover a playmaking touch -- he doesn't have an assist. The rookie winger has added 43 shots on net, 20 hits, 17 blocked shots, eight PIM and a minus-2 rating.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Scores first career hat trick

    Marchenko scored three goals on eight shots, fueling the Blue Jackets to a 4-3 shootout win over the Hurricanes on Saturday.

    Marchenko was simply spectacular in Saturday's contest, scoring two power-play goals in the second period before tying the game at 3-3 in the third to give him his first career hat trick. This was also the rookie forward's first career multi-point game. Marchenko's up to eight goals, but he's still searching for his first NHL assist.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Scores power-play goal Friday

    Marchenko netted a goal in Columbus' 5-2 loss to Chicago on Friday.

    Marchenko's marker came at 13:48 of the second period and was scored with the man advantage. It was his fourth goal and point in 10 games this season. The 22-year-old entered the contest averaging just 12:22 of ice time, but 1:43 of that was with the man advantage. Marchenko's unlikely to maintain his current goal scoring pace, but his role on the power play will continue to help his overall offensive production.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Lights lamp in Thursday's loss

    Marchenko scored his second NHL goal in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Lightning.

    He got Columbus on the board early in the second period, taking a slick cross-ice feed from Cole Sillinger and wiring the puck past Brian Elliott, but it was all the offense the Blue Jackets could muster. Both of Marchenko's goals have come in the last three games, and the 22-year-old appears to be acclimating quickly to the top level after an impressive run at AHL Cleveland to begin his first North American campaign.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Nets first career goal

    Marchenko found the back of the net in Sunday's 6-5 overtime win against the Kings.

    Marchenko got the scoring started at 6:44 of the first period. It was his first NHL goal and point in his fourth contest. He's done great in the AHL this season, recording eight markers and 19 points in 16 games. However, the 22-year-old logged just 11:08 of ice time Sunday, and he entered the game averaging 12:11 with Columbus. Unless his role with the Blue Jackets grows, Marchenko shouldn't be counted on to make regular offensive contributions.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Scoreless in NHL debut

    Marchenko didn't record a point but produced two shots, two hits and a blocked shot in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.

    Making his NHL debut, the 22-year-old didn't get to see much ice time in a chippy game that had one team or the other on the power play for much of the night. Marchenko skated on a "kid" line with Cole Sillinger and Yegor Chinakhov, and while the trio all have bright futures, they could have trouble making a fantasy impact in the short term. Marchenko, a second-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, is actually the oldest of the three, and after racking up eight goals and 19 points in 16 games for AHL Cleveland to begin the season in his first action outside of the KHL, he appears more than ready for a regular spot in the NHL.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Summoned by Columbus

    Marchenko was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Monday.

    Marchenko ranks second in scoring among AHL rookies with 19 points (eight goals, 11 assists) in 16 games this season. The 22-year-old forward could get a chance to make his NHL debut Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Hot start in AHL

    Marchenko has three goals and an assist through his first two games with AHL Cleveland.

    The 22-year-old was caught in a roster crunch during training camp after coming over from Russia in the offseason and didn't make the initial NHL roster, but Marchenko is doing his best to get the Blue Jackets to re-think that decision. With Patrik Laine (elbow) already sidelined and Columbus off to an 0-3 start to the season, it may not be long before Marchenko is called up to make his Jackets debut and potentially provide the offense with a jolt.

  • Blue Jackets' Kirill Marchenko: Shipped down to minors

    Marchenko was demoted to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.

    Marchenko is making the jump to North America after having previously played exclusively in the KHL. Unfortunately for the 22-year-old winger, it appears he will have to at least begin the year in the minors before getting a chance to compete at the NHL level.
