  • Blue Jackets' Thomas Vanek: Two points in Thursday's Game 1 overtime win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/13/18) Vanek scored a power-play goal and added an assist at even strength in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Capitals in Game 1.

    After scoring seven goals and 15 points in 19 games for the Jackets following his acquisition at the trade deadline, Vanek isn't slowing down, potting his 21st career playoff goal in his 64th postseason contest. If Columbus is going to advance to the second round for the first time in franchise history, the veteran winger will likely need to stay productive.

    Blue Jackets' Thomas Vanek: Hat trick in Tuesday's rout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/18) Vanek scored three goals on five shots while adding an assist, a blocked shot and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Oilers.

    His move to Columbus flew under the radar, but Vanek has arguably been the biggest addition any team made at the trade deadline, as he now has seven goals and 13 points in the last 10 games with his new club. Perhaps even more impressively, the 34-year-old is a plus-12 with the Jackets -- completely wiping out the minus-12 deficit he accumulated in 61 games with the Canucks.

    Blue Jackets' Thomas Vanek: Two more points Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/18) Vanek scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Bruins.

    He also added two shots, one hit and a plus-1 rating, Vanek's 20th goal of the season came on a beautiful redirection of a Markus Nutivaara shot from the point early in the third period, and the veteran winger now has three goals and seven points in the last six games as he settled in alongside Alexander Wennberg and Boone Jenner on a suddenly dangerous third line for the Blue Jackets.

    Blue Jackets' Thomas Vanek: Pots first two goals as Blue Jacket on Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/8/18) Vanek scored two goals on eight shots while adding a blocked shot and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche.

    The goals were his first points in five games since the trade that brought him to Columbus. Although both tallies came at even strength, Vanek has been seeing regular shifts on the power play for the Jackets, so he's getting plenty of opportunities to catch fire and help spark the offense. Goals have tended to come in bunches for the journeyman throughout his career, so don't be surprised if he adds to his totals in short order.

    Blue Jackets' Thomas Vanek: Expected to join Jackets on Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/27/18) Vanek is expected to join the Blue Jackets for practice Wednesday and suit up for Thursday's road game against the Kings, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    He was the only one of the Jackets' three deadline-day acquisitions not to be in the lineup Monday, and in his absence the team's power play showed signs of life by scoring twice against the Caps in a 5-1 win. Vanek should still provide the club with an offensive boost down the stretch, and his initial line assignment should become clear Wednesday.
