Sherwood is on the Blue Jackets' training camp roster.
This means that Sherwood's time with Kunlun Red Star of the KHL is over. The 23-year-old center has seen minimal time at the NHL level so far, but he'll challenge for a spot on the 23-man roster heading into 2020-21.
The Blue Jackets have loaned Sherwood to the KHL's Kunlun Red Star.
Sherwood accepted the Blue Jackets' qualifying offer, and he's expected to return to the team once the 2020-21 season commences. For the time being, he'll look to fine-tune his skills in the KHL in hopes of securing a full-time role with the Blue Jackets next season.
Sherwood signed a one-year, two-way deal worth $735,000 with Columbus on Friday, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.
Sherwood has appeared in five NHL contests with Columbus over the last two seasons but he's still looking for his first point at the top level. The 23-year-old forward should fight for a spot with the Blue Jackets next training camp, but the two-way deal will give the team some roster flexibility.
Sherwood has been left off the team's final 31-man roster for the playoffs, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.
Sherwood was a bit of a longshot to make the squad, especially considering he saw action in just three contests this season, recording just six shots across 6:38 of average ice time. Along with Sherwood, Ryan MacInnis and Veini Vehvilainen were also cut by the team.
Sherwood linked up with the team Thursday ahead of training camp, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Sherwood saw action in just three contests this season in which he registered six shots, 10 hits and two PIM while averaging a meager 6:38 of ice time. The 22-year-old center figures to be a longshot for the lineup and will almost certainly spend the playoffs watching from the press box.
The Blue Jackets reassigned Sherwood to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.
Sherwood's demotion indicates Josh Anderson (shoulder) may be ready to return Thursday against the Flyers. The 23-year-old Sherwood will continue to be one of the first skaters the Jackets turn to when dealing with injuries up front, but he won't be a viable fantasy option in any format in 2019-20.
The Blue Jackets recalled Sherwood from AHL Cleveland on Sunday.
After Cam Atkinson's (ankle) placement on injured reserve Sunday, the Blue Jackets now have five forwards that reside on IR. Sherwood assumes the roster spot as the 13th healthy forward for the big club, and he's seen action in three games this campaign, going pointless with 10 hits across 6:38 of average ice time.
Sherwood (oblique) was removed from injured reserve and reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.
Sherwood logged just three games for the Blue Jackets prior to getting hurt, in which he tallied six shots, two PIM and 10 hits while averaging 6:38 of ice time. Once he gets his legs back under him, the center should be atop the list of potential call-ups but ultimately figures to spend the bulk of the year in the AHL.
Sherwood skated for the first time Monday since suffering his oblique injury, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Sherwood is still expected to be out until at least mid-December, but getting back on the ice is certainly a step in the right direction. Even once cleared to play, the natural center is far from a lock for the lineup and likely will find himself heading back to AHL Cleveland before long.
Sherwood will miss 4-to-6 weeks due to an oblique tear, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Sherwood received the call to the NHL in early November, but he has drawn into just three games in his second foray with the big club. Unfortunately, the winger will be forced to wait a while for his next opportunity to notch his first career NHL point. The Blue Jackets recalled Markus Hannikainen from AHL Cleveland to replace him on the active roster.
Sherwood was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Saturday, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.
In 10 appearances for the Monsters, Sherwood notched three goals, one helper and 14 PIM. The 22-year-old will likely serve as an emergency depth option ahead of Saturday's matchup with Calgary, with Markus Hannikainen slotting into the lineup. The promotion for Sherwood will likely be temporary and could have more to do with getting AHLer Jakob Lilja more ice time.
Sherwood scored a goal on his only shot and added four hits in Tuesday's 4-1 preseason win over the Sabres.
The 22-year-old heads into this year's camp looking to win a consistent bottom-six role after scoring 16 goals and 25 points in 56 games for AHL Cleveland last season while suiting up for two NHL games in February. Sherwood's scrappy skill set could catch coach John Tortorella's eye, and there's a lot of ice time available on the Jackets following the departures of Artemi Panarin, Matt Duchene and others in free agency, but the best-case scenario for Sherwood this season still likely involves a lot of trips on the Columbus-Cleveland shuttle.
The Blue Jackets assigned Sherwood to AHL Cleveland on Tuesday.
Sherwood saw extensive ice time Monday against the Lightning and brought the boom to the ice, accumulating six hits in addition to his two shots on goal and a plus-1 rating. While the 22-year-old could be recalled again if the team needs a physical presence, he will return to a Cleveland club with whom he's racked up 14 points over 34 games this season.
Sherwood was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Friday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Sherwood was reassigned to AHL Cleveland on Jan. 14 after not logging any ice time in his first stint with Columbus. In addition, the Ohio native was sent down to make room for Brandon Dubinsky (lower body), who was returning to the team at the time. In a corresponding move Friday, however, the Blue Jackets placed Dubinsky on injured reserve, freeing up a spot for Sherwood.
Sherwood was reassigned to the minors Monday.
Sherwood's demotion could be an indication that Brandon Dubinsky (hamstring) or Markus Hannikainen (elbow) is ready to go for Tuesday's clash with New Jersey. The 21-year-old Sherwood didn't log any ice time in his first call-up of the season and will have to wait a little longer to make his NHL debut.
The Blue Jackets recalled Sherwood from AHL Cleveland on Sunday.
Columbus only had 12 healthy forwards on the roster, so bringing up Sherwood was necessary for safety stock. The 21-year-old has scored four goals and added three helpers over 22 games in the minors this year. It's unclear if the Columbus native will make his NHL debut Sunday night at home versus the Rangers.
