Leopold played left wing on the fourth line during Saturday's loss to the Lightning.Matt Calvert's sinus infection flared up and made him a late scratch, and the Blue Jackets were caught short of forwards after sending Josh Anderson back to AHL Springfield when Ryan Murray came off IR. Look for the club to deal one of their surplus defensemen such as Leopold, Dalton Prout or Cody Goloubef (all of whom would have to clear waivers to be sent down) once Murray proves he can handle a full workload.

Leopold scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.After being held completely off the scoresheet in seven games with the Blues, Leopold has picked up a goal and an assist in five games since being traded to the Blue Jackets. He does have a 35-point season on his resume as recently as 2010-2011 with the Sabres, so if he keeps getting significant ice time in Columbus he might even be able to maintain that pace.

Leopold was traded to the Blue Jackets on Saturday in exchange for a 2016 fifth-round draft pick.Leopold had been collecting dust as the Blues' seventh defenseman following Carl Gunnarsson's return from a hip injury, playing in none of the team's last seven games. He could see more regular duty with Columbus on their third pairing, but probably won't provide enough of offense to warrant much intrigue in the fantasy realm.

Leopold (ankle) is expected to play Saturday against Colorado but miss Sunday's game against Chicago, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.Leopold returned to the lineup Thursday against the Sabres after missing the previous 18 games, skating 16:44 with just a single shot on goal and no points. It looks like he will play Saturday against the Avs, but he is unlikely to play in back-to-back games following a high ankle sprain, so expect him to sit out Sunday's game against the Blackhawks.
