  • Blue Jackets' Josh Anderson: Won't be selected in expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/17/17) Columbus has reportedly come to an agreement with the Golden Knights that will send the 24th overall pick in this year's entry draft and a prospect to Las Vegas to dissuade the new team from selecting Anderson, Joonas Korpisalo, Jack Johnson or David Savard in the upcoming expansion draft, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Anderson's offensive upside was on full display in 2016-17, as the 23-year-old winger potted 17 goals and notched 12 assists while skating in a limited role through 78 games. The 2012 fourth-round pick only averaged 12:01 of ice time last season, and if the Blue Jackets' willingness to send a first-round pick to Vegas to keep him on board is any indication of their confidence in the young power forward, he'll likely have an expanded role in 2017-18.

    Blue Jackets' Josh Anderson: Scores goal in Sunday's victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/17) Anderson scored his 17th goal of the season in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Anderson snapped an 11-game goal drought, his first time lighting the lamp since March 18. He has scored goals in back-to-back games on four separate occasions this season.

    Blue Jackets' Josh Anderson: Powers offense from fourth line in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/16/17) Anderson picked up a goal, an assist, three shots, a plus-2 rating and two PIM despite skating a team-low 9:24 in Thursday's win over Florida

    He'd missed the scoresheet in five straight, putting just two shots on net in that span, but Anderson has been surprisingly productive on the whole despite averaging less than 12 minutes of ice time this year. With 15 goals, 26 total points, a plus-11 rating, 72 PIM and 112 hits, Anderson can certainly find a place on fantasy rosters in deep formats.

    Blue Jackets' Josh Anderson: Back in action Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/13/17) Anderson (lower body) will rejoin the lineup Monday against the Flyers.

    Anderson was expected to miss at least a week, but will wind up missing the shorter end of his 7-to-10 day timetable handed to him a week ago. He's expected to replace Lauri Korpikoski in the lineup unless Nick Foligno (illness) is unable to play. The young winger has contributed a bit more than was expected of him this season, drawing into 63 games for the Blue Jackets and adding 24 points (14 goals, 10 assists) over that span. His ice time will likely remain limited and it's unlikely Anderson will see time on the power play, limiting his upside from a fantasy standpoint.

    Blue Jackets' Josh Anderson: Expected out at least a week

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/7/17) Anderson (lower body) is expected to be sidelined approximately 7-to-10 days, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    Anderson suffered the lower-body injury during Sunday's contest against the Devils, and it appears to be more than a minor ding. He can safely be ruled out for the club's contests Tuesday and Friday, and Saturday seems doubtful at best. Columbus should recall some reinforcements from the AHL affiliate in his absence.
