  • Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Returns to highest level Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/2/18) Hannikainen was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Friday.

    The Blue Jackets have chronically shuffled Hannikainen about the organization's ranks this season, as he's on the verge of blooming into a full-time player. Both Jussi Jokinen and Matt Calvert will be unrestricted free agents this summer, which figures to open the door for Hannikainen to earn a consistent role with the parent club. Until that happens, though, he doesn't possesses much fantasy utility outside of keeper/dynasty leagues. He's pitched in four points (two goals, two assists) over 27 NHL games this campaign.

    Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Sent to AHL affiliate

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/18) The Blue Jackets assigned Hannikainen to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.

    Hannikainen has been a healthy scratch for the Blue Jackets' last four games, so Columbus clearly wants him to taste some game action in the minors instead of riding the pine with the big club. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see him back with the Jackets after drawing into a few games with AHL Cleveland.

    Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Promoted from AHL

    (1/29/18) Hannikainen was called up from the minors Monday.

    Injuries to Brandon Dubinsky (orbital) and Sonny Milano (oblique) have opened the door for Hannikainen to try to earn a more secure role in Columbus. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the Finn has yet to take that next step, as he was a healthy scratch in three straight contests. Even when he is in the lineup, the winger is averaging a mere 7:58 of ice time. For the time being, Hannikainen will continue to compete with Zac Dalpe for regular minutes.

    Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Skips back to NHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/18) Hannikainen was called up from AHL Cleveland on Saturday.

    The 24-year-old Finn continues to pinball between the Blue Jackets and their top development affiliate. However, he's been playing more than ever at the highest level in 2017-18, collecting four points through 27 contests. Hannikainen has already defied the odds of cracking an NHL roster despite going undrafted, so we can't rule out his potential for making a splash in the fantasy realm in the coming seasons.

    Blue Jackets' Markus Hannikainen: Sent back to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/18) Hannikainen was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Thursday, TSN reports.

    The Blue Jackets don't play again until Tuesday against the Golden Knights, whereas the Monsters will have played two contests before then, so Hannikainen will continue to refine his game in the lower levels. After all, there's usually no such thing as an in-season break for a touted prospect teetering between the organization's ranks.
