Blue Jackets' Joonas Korpisalo: Facing Florida
Korpisalo will patrol the crease in Thursday's home matchup with the Panthers, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.
Korpisalo has struggled in limited action this campaign, posting an ugly 3.75 GAA and .875 save percentage through seven appearances, but he's managed to compile a 4-0-2 record over that span due to high-end goal support from his teammates. The 24-year-old netminder will look to start righting the ship while snapping his two-game losing streak in a home game against a red-hot Panthers squad that's won five consecutive games....

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Out Thursday
Nash won't play Thursday against Florida due to an illness, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.
With Nash unavailable, Lukas Sedlak will likely enter the lineup and take on a bottom-six role against the Panthers. Nash will be reevaluated ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Hurricanes.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Thursday status in doubt
Nash (illness) could miss Thursday's game versus the Panthers, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.
The veteran forward's status is reportedly in doubt, slowed by an illness.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Gabriel Carlsson: Sent down to minors
Carlsson was demoted to AHL Cleveland on Thursday.
This most recent stint in the NHL for Carlsson lasted just one day, as the blueliner was just promoted Wednesday. With Sergei Bobrovsky (illness) and Artemi Panarin (illness) both under the weather, the Blue Jackets needed to make some moves to bolster their forward and goaltending depth. Carlsson is likely to find himself moving between leagues frequently this season, but figures to spend most of his time with Columbus in the press box.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Artemi Panarin: Unfit to play
Panarin (illness) is not expected to play Thursday evening against the Panthers.
The Blue Jackets called up Zac Dalpe from AHL Cleveland knowing they'll be without their stud winger. Panarin missed practice Wednesday as the first sign that he is under the weather.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Zac Dalpe: Jumps to top level
Dalpe was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Thursday.
Showstopping winger Artemi Panarin is expected to miss the evening's home contest against the Panthers, so Dalpe will be on hand as a potential replacement option. Of course, there's no such thing as a linear replacement for a guy like Panarin, so if Dalpe tags into the lineup Thursday, it'll almost assuredly be in a fourth-line capacity.... See More ...

Blue Jackets' Jean-Francois Berube: Ascends to NHL
Berube was called up from AHL Cleveland on Thursday.
Berube was summoned to the parent club in the wake of an illness to traditional starter Sergei Bobrovsky. However, the Blue Jackets might be reluctant to start Berube in Thursday's home game against the Panthers since Joonas Korpisalo is available and Berube has only made 34 career starts comprised of uninspiring peripherals, including a 3.39 GAA and .898 save percentage....

Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky: Effectively ruled out with illness
Bobrovsky is expected to sit out with an illness Thursday, George Richards of The Athletic reports.
The Blue Jackets have summoned Jean-Francois Berube from AHL Cleveland to join Joonas Korpisalo as available goaltenders for Thursday's home game against the Panthers.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Gabriel Carlsson: Summoned by parent club
Carlsson was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old Swede has played only one game at the NHL level this season and failed to record a point. Meanwhile, Carlsson has notched seven points in 12 games with AHL Cleveland.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Artemi Panarin: Illness causes missed practice
Panarin missed practice Wednesday due to an illness, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Panarin appeared to be a step slower in Monday's game against the Stars, as he failed to get a shot on goal for just the second time all season. The Blue Jackets are bound to reevaluate the elite winger ahead of Thursday's home contest versus the Panthers.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Adam Clendening: Hits waivers
The Blue Jackets placed Clendening on waivers Tuesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Clendening has been a healthy scratch for the Blue Jackets' last 13 games, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. As long as he goes unclaimed, the 26-year-old blueliner will be assigned to AHL Cleveland.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Cam Atkinson: Productive offensively in road win
Atkinson chipped in two points -- consisting of a power-play and a 5-on-5 helper -- in Sunday's 2-1 road win over the Stars.
Those who streamed Atkinson on a small DFS slate where thrilled to see the enigmatic top-six contributor factor into both of his team's goals, especially since the game was low scoring in general. The American winger is now up to 14 points (eight goals, six assists) through 17 games in 2018-19.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Pierre-Luc Dubois: Nets game-winner against Stars
Dubois scored the game-winning goal in Monday's 2-1 victory over the Stars.
He paid the price for it, taking a high stick from Dallas goalie Anton Khudobin as he banged home Cam Atkinson's pass through the crease, but Dubois still collected his eighth goal of the season. The second-year center now has six goals and nine points in his last nine games, and his spot on the Blue Jackets' top line should ensure a solid fantasy floor for the 20-year-old even if he endures some bumps in his developmental road....

Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky: Stops 26 shots in win over Stars
Bobrovsky stopped 26 of 27 shots in Monday's 2-1 win over the Stars.
The 30-year-old seems to have put his October struggles firmly in the rear view mirror. Bobrovsky has now allowed only a single goal in five of his last six starts, winning four of them, and he boasts a fantastic .952 save percentage over that stretch.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky: Gets start in Dallas
Bobrovsky will be his team's starter Monday night in Dallas.
It has not been the ideal start to a season for Bobrovsky, though he has looked more like himself recently. The two-time Vezina Trophy winner has limited opposing teams to a goal in each of his last two starts, and will be looking to win his third straight against a Stars team he beat less than a week ago....

Blue Jackets' Pierre-Luc Dubois: Two-point effort in loss to Rangers
Dubois scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Rangers.
The helper came on the power play, and Dubois also fired a team-high six shots on net during the contest. The 20-year-old now has seven goals and 12 points through 17 games as he continues on the path to becoming the true No. 1 center the Columbus franchise thought they were getting when they drafted him third overall in 2016....

Blue Jackets' Seth Jones: Grabs three helpers in shootout loss
Jones picked up three assists, including one on the power play and one shorthanded, in Saturday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Rangers.
He also added three shots, three blocked shots and a hit to his ledger. Jones took a while to get back into the flow of things after missing the first seven games of the season with a knee injury, but the 24-year-old blue line stud now has a goal and seven points in his last six contests while seeing a huge amount of ice time in all situations....
