Harrington scored a goal on two shots and delivered one hit Monday in a 3-2 win over Carolina.
Harrington opened the scoring late in the first period, sending a wrist shot from the left faceoff circle that banked off a Carolina defenseman and into the net. A veteran depth player for the Blue Jackets, Harrington has picked up a goal and an assist over his first two games of the season as he fills in for Zach Werenski (lower body).
Harrington notched an assist in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Hurricanes.
Harrington set up Max Domi for a goal in the third period. The 27-year-old Harrington played his season debut Sunday, in place of Gabriel Carlsson on the third pairing. Those two defensemen will likely share that role while Zach Werenski (lower body) is on injured reserve, but it's unlikely Harrington plays his way into fantasy relevance.
Harrington managed an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.
Harrington had a shot attempt in the third period which Stefan Matteau tipped in to tie the game at three. Offense has been hard to find for Harrington, who has six points, 33 shots and a minus-2 rating in 35 contests. When he's in the lineup, he's been mostly a third-pairing blueliner, which won't attract any fantasy attention.
Harrington has played in 14 straight games since the beginning of January, recording a goal and an assist with eight PIM, 11 shots, 14 blocked shots, 24 hits and a plus-3 rating.
The 26-year-old has become a steady presence on the third pairing thanks to injuries to Ryan Murray (upper body) and Dean Kukan (knee), and Harrington is flashing his physical play with regular ice time. He offers little to fantasy GMs, but the Jackets' blue line depth has proven to be a key part of their success this season.
Harrington picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Golden Knights.
Harrington's shot attempt in the second period was tipped in by Pierre-Luc Dubois for the Blue Jackets' second tally. Through 18 games this season, Harrington has four points, 22 hits and 20 blocked shots. He's not a factor in the fantasy game with his inconsistent role that maxes out on the third defensive pairing.
Harrington scored a goal and blocked two shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the Kings.
Harrington's tally at 10:40 of the second period gave the Blue Jackets their first lead of the contest. The defenseman is up to just three points, 15 shots on goal and 19 blocked shots in 15 outings. He's far from a fixture in the lineup -- he'll likely be the seventh defenseman once Ryan Murray (upper body) returns.
Harrington (illness) will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's matchup with Florida, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.
Harrington was previously dealing with an illness, but he'll just be the odd-man-out Tuesday. The 26-year-old has picked up two helpers while posting a minus-5 rating in 12 games this campaign.
Harrington (illness) won't play in Sunday's home game against the Blackhawks.
Harrington will miss a second straight game due to this illness, so Gabriel Carlsson will remain in the lineup. The 26-year-old Harrington will aim to shake off this sickness for Tuesday's matchup against the Panthers.
Harrington (illness) won't be available for Friday's matchup with Washington, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
With Harrington under the weather, Gabriel Carlsson will draw into the lineup against the Capitals. The veteran blueliner will hope to recover in time for Sunday's clash with Chicago.
Harrington has suited up for four of the last five games, collecting one assist, a minus-1 rating, two PIM, four shots, four hits and five blocked shots.
The Jackets' depth along the blue line is being tested with both Ryan Murray (hand) and Markus Nutivaara (upper body) on IR, and Harrington has become a lineup regular as a result. The 26-year-old doesn't offer much fantasy upside on the third pairing, but if he can minimize his mistakes he'll at least keep coach John Tortorella from scouring the organization for alternatives.
Harrington replaced Markus Nutivaara (lower body) in Thursday's lineup, recording three shots, two hits, two blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in only 12:15 of ice time during an overtime win over the Hurricanes.
Carolina scored all three of its goals in an eight-minute stretch during the first period, with Harrington on the ice for two of them, and he got used sparingly by coach John Tortorella after that. There's no timetable yet for Nutivaara's return to action, but Dean Kukan could replace Harrington as the Jackets' No. 6 defenseman for Saturday's game in Philadelphia.
Harrington was inactive for Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.
Rookie Vladislav Gavrikov has seized control of the sixth spot on the Jackets' deep blue line, leaving Harrington and Dean Kukan in the press box for now. Harrington scored two goals and 17 points with a plus-6 rating in 73 games for the club last season.
Harrington penned a three-year, $4.9 million contract extension with Columbus on Friday.
Harrington set career highs in games played (73), assists (15) and points (17) last season. The blueliner's deal is one way in nature, which all but guarantees he won't have to spend any time in the minors. Still, the 25-year-old will face plenty of competition for minutes and will need to enjoy a strong training camp in order to earn a spot in the Opening Night lineup versus Toronto on Oct. 4.
Harrington has received a qualifying offer from the Blue Jackets, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Harrington held down a regular role for the first time in his NHL career last season, finishing with 17 points in 73 games. A return to a bottom-pairing role seems to be the most likely scenario for the 26-year-old defenseman.
Harrington set up a goal and picked up a minor penalty for tripping in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins.
Harrington has a career-high 16 points this season, though it's simply the result of being deployed more than ever before. His paltry shooting percentage (2.6) -- one goal on 38 shots -- is excusable since he's a defenseman, and 15 helpers have put him in play in extremely deep leagues, but there's only so much a guy can do with 12:29 of average ice time.
Harrington picked up an assist against Buffalo on Tuesday.
Harrington's tally ended a nine-game pointless streak, though the blueliner still hasn't found the back of the net in his last 24 outings. The Ontario native has already set new career highs in games played (43), assists (11) and points (12), with his ceiling likely in the 20-point range.
Harrington (illness) is expected to suit up against the Predators on Thursday, according to Craig Merz of NHL.com.

Despite skating Thursday morning, Harrington (illness) could be a game-time decision for the evening's home game against the Predators, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.
Based on this report, it appears that either Harrington or Dean Kukan will suit up against the Predators. This must be a particularly nasty illness for the former since he's in danger of missing a third straight game.
Harrington (illness) wont play in Tuesday's game versus the Lightning, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Despite returning to practice, Harrington will miss his second consecutive game, allowing Dean Kukan to enter the lineup. Harrington won't be missed in the fantasy realm since he has just 11 points in 36 games, although his plus-8 rating is decent consolation.
Harrington (illness) is no lock to play Tuesday against the Lightning, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.
Harrington was confident he'd be good to go for the next game, but he still wasn't feeling right after the latest skate, consequently re-opening his status as a game-time decision to face the Bolts on the road Tuesday. The 25-year-old defenseman has been quite productive this season, adding one goal and 10 assists over 36 games and 11:18 of ice time.
