Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Is week-to-week
Olivier (lower leg) is considered to be week-to-week going into training camp, according to Aaron Portzline of The Athletic.
Olivier had five goals, 15 points 81 PIM and 178 hits in 66 games with Columbus in 2022-23. He's likely to serve on the fourth line once he's healthy.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Inks two-year extension
Olivier (lower leg), who was set to become a restricted free agent this summer, signed a two-year, $2.2 million contract with Columbus on Wednesday.
Olivier received a raise compared to his expiring two-year, $1.5 million deal. He had five goals and 15 points in 66 outings last season. The 26-year-old missed Columbus' final 11 contests due to his lower-leg injury.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Set to miss 2-4 weeeks
Olivier (lower leg bone bruise) will be out for 2-4 weeks, the Jackets announced Monday.
At best, Olivier could return for the final 2-3 games of the season based on the early end of his recovery timeline, but there's little reason for the team to force him back into the lineup. As such, fantasy players may want to just assume the 26-year-old winger won't be back this year. Olivier will likely wrap up the 2022-23 campaign having notched five goals, 10 assists and 75 shots in 66 contests, all of which are personal bests for the Mississippi native.... See More ...

Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Out Saturday
Olivier (lower body) will not travel to Montreal on Saturday, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Saturday's game in Montreal will be the start of a three-game road trip for Columbus. Olivier could join the team as early as Tuesday in New York to face the Rangers. An update on his timeline should be available in the coming days but the team will need to promote a replacement regardless.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Sustains lower-body injury
Olivier suffered a lower-body injury and won't return to Friday's game versus the Islanders.
Olivier logged just 35 seconds of ice time before exiting the contest. Going into Friday's action, he had five goals and 15 points in 65 appearances this season. It remains to be seen if he'll be available Saturday versus Montreal.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Chips in with helper
Olivier logged an assist, five hits and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sharks.
Olivier set up linemate Liam Foudy for a third-period tally. The helper ended a five-game point drought for Olivier, who remains an inconsistent contributor on the fourth line. The physical winger is up to five goals, nine assists, 70 shots on net, 167 hits, 55 blocked shots, 81 PIM and a minus-18 rating through 61 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: First multi-point NHL game
Olivier had a goal and two assists in a 4-1 win over the Stars on Saturday. He also delivered three hits.
It was Olivier's first multipoint game in the NHL. His goal stretched the lead to 3-1 at 15:32 of the third -- he knocked in a loose puck in the crease after it squeaked through Stars' netminder Scott Wedgewood on a shot from Eric Robinson off the rush. It was Olivier's first goal in 11 games.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Opens scoring in loss
Olivier logged a goal, five hits and a fighting major in Thursday's 5-2 loss to Anaheim.
Olivier opened the scoring 2:17 into the first period, beating Anthony Stolarz with a wrist shot on a 2-on-1 rush. The 25-year-old would add a fighting major later in the frame after a scrap with Sam Carrick. The goal was Olivier's third of the season and his first since Nov. 23. The Mississippi-born forward won't offer much offensively (seven points in 40 games) but he certainly adds physicality to Columbus' fourth line, tallying 109 hits and 56.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Four hits in Tuesday's loss
Olivier recorded four hits, a shot on goal and a minus-1 rating in Tuesday's loss to the Predators.
He has just one assist over his last 18 games, but his offensive skills aren't why Columbus picked him up from Nashville in the offseason. Olivier has 105 hits and 51 PIM in 39 contests this season, filling the modern equivalent of an enforcer role on the Jackets' fourth line. Those numbers come at a price though, as the 25-year-old winger also has a minus-17 rating, and there are probably better fantasy options available in deep leagues where those physical categories have value....

Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Still on mend from illness
Olivier indicated over the weekend that his recent three-game absence was due to a gastro-intestinal issue that landed him in the emergency room, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
The winger admitted the incident "really had me worried," although he was eventually diagnosed with a virus and not a more serious condition. Olivier still isn't completely back to full strength but has been playing his usual physical style since returning to the lineup, racking up 11 hits, four PIM and three blocked shots over four games in addition to three shots on net and an assist....

Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Returning against Penguins
Olivier (illness) will be back in the lineup Tuesday against Pittsburgh, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Dealing with illness
Olivier (illness) is not expected to play Sunday versus the Red Wings, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Nets first goal of season
Olivier provided a goal in a 6-4 win against Montreal on Thursday.
It was Olivier's first goal and third point in 14 games this season. The 25 year old primarily serves as a fourth-line forward and his offensive contributions are likely to be few and far between. He does have 22 PIM and 28 hits, though.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Quiet start to season
Olivier has one assist, nine shots on net, 21 hits, seven PIM and a minus-4 rating through his first nine games with the Blue Jackets.
Brought in over the summer to provide some muscle for the Columbus roster, Olivier is second on the team in hits behind fellow fourth liner Sean Kuraly's 23, so he's doing his job. With the Jackets struggling badly right now though, Olivier is one of the most likely players to lose their spot if the club decides to shake things up.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Mathieu Olivier: Dealt to Columbus
Olivier was traded from the Predators to the Blue Jackets on Thursday in exchange for the 122nd overall pick in the 2022 Draft.
Olivier was limited to 10 NHL appearances for the Predators in 2021-22, logging one assist, 23 hits, 14 PIM and a minus-3 rating. He's more of a physical, bottom-six type of forward, so he'll likely be on the fringe of the Blue Jackets' roster competition in training camp.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Mathieu Olivier: Sent back to minors
Olivier will be reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday, Patrick Willis of AHL.com reports.
Olivier saw action in just 10 games during the regular season in which he garnered one assist, five shots and 23 hits while averaging 10:06 of ice time. Given his limited offensive upside, the 25-year-old winger will be hard-pressed to earn significant opportunities next year.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Mathieu Olivier: Called up Tuesday
Olivier was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday.
Olivier has gotten into eight games at the top level this season, posting a single point. He hasn't been very productive in the AHL, either, with just five goals and six assists in 46 contests, so Olivier doesn't figure to offer much fantasy help anytime soon.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Mathieu Olivier: Drops from active roster
Olivier was sent to AHL Milwaukee on Saturday, per CapFriendly.
Olivier will likely continue to rotate between the minors, taxi squad and active roster, though the Predators are getting closer to full health. Most of his playing time should come with Milwaukee.... See More ... See Less
