Markus Hannikainen scored the game-winning goal in Columbus' 7-3 win over Florida on Thursday.

It was Hannikainen's first goal and third point in 11 games this season. It was also his first game-winner in 58 career contests.
Nov 16 - 4:57 AM

Anthony Duclair started Thursday's game on the third line, but was bumped up to the top line by the end of the contest.

Duclair had a goal and an assist in 15 minutes of ice time. He has eight goals and 12 points in 19 contests, which is impressive, but his defensive play has landed him in Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella's doghouse at times.
Nov 16 - 4:55 AM

Joonas Korpisalo gave up three goals on 43 shots in Thursday’s 7-3 win over the Florida Panthers.

It was a rough start to the game for Korpisalo who gave up two goals in the opening 6:45 of the contest. He settled down after, making enough saves to allow his teammates to jump out to a 3-2 lead before pulling away in the third. Columbus’ backup will see his record improve to 5-0-2 with a 3.68 goals-against-average and a .885 save percentage.

Cam Atkinson scored a goal shorthanded and got an assist in Thursday’s 7-3 win over to the Florida Panthers.

Alex Wennberg made a nice move to get the puck over to Atkinson on a two-on-one that he converted for his ninth goal of the season, first shorthanded. Atkinson then followed that up with the secondary assist on Pierre-Luc Dubois’ ninth goal of the season, 6:16 into the second period. The 29-year-old Atkinson had a bit of a down year last season (46 points in 65 games) but he has come out flying to start the new season with 16 points in 18 games. Brandon Dubinsky, Markus Hannikainen, Booner Jenner, Josh Anderson and Anthony Duclair also scored in the win.

Dean Kukan will be a healthy scratch on Thursday night against the Florida Panthers.

Kukan will be joined in the press box by Artemi Panarin (illness), Sergei Bobrovsky (illness) and Riley Nash (illness).
Nov 15 - 6:52 PM

Joonas Korpisalo will be in goal on Thursday night against the Florida Panthers.

It will be a battle of perfect records between goaltenders tonight. Korpisalo is coming in without a regulation loss while Roberto Luongo at the other end has yet to lose a single point this season. Korpisalo has a 4-0-2 record with a 3.78 goals-against-average and a .875 save percentage.
Nov 15 - 6:32 PM

Riley Nash won't play Thursday because of an illness.

Columbus also won't have Sergei Bobrovsky and Artemi Panarin due to an illness that appears to be hitting the team hard.
Nov 15 - 6:15 PM

Gabriel Carlsson has been assigned to the minors.

Carlsson didn't play for Columbus during his brief NHL stint. He hasn't suited up with the Blue Jackets since Oct. 4.
Nov 15 - 6:11 PM

Columbus has promoted Zac Dalpe.

Dalpe has 12 goals and 19 points in 12 AHL contests this season. In 140 career NHL games, he has 12 goals and 24 points.
Nov 15 - 3:10 PM

Jean-Francois Berube has been called up by the Columbus Blue Jackets on an emergency basis.

Sergei Bobrovsky is under the weather, so Columbus needed an extra goaltender ahead of Tuesday's game. Berube has a 3.41 GAA and .893 save percentage in 10 contests in 2018-19.
Nov 15 - 3:09 PM

Sergei Bobrovsky is dealing with an illness.

Bobrovsky will probably miss Thursday's game as a result. Jean-Francois Berube has already been summoned on an emergency basis in anticipation of Bobrovsky's absence.
Nov 15 - 3:07 PM

Artemi Panarin (illness) isn't expected to be available on Thursday.

Panarin also missed Wednesday's practice due to the disease. He has five goals and 18 points in 18 games this season.
Nov 15 - 3:06 PM

Zach Werenski only logged 14:27 minutes of ice time on Monday.

Werenski was also limited to 13:21 minutes on Nov. 9. This all followed the Blue Jackets' decision to move Werenski from the top pairing to the third. It's part of coach John Tortorella's continued efforts to hold all players accountable and hopefully Werenski will get out of the doghouse soon. There's a chance though that before that happens, Werenski might even end up as a healthy scratch.
Nov 15 - 9:22 AM

Adam Clendening has cleared waivers and will head to Cleveland of the AHL.

Clendening was waived by the Blue Jackets on Tuesday. He has appeared in just four games with Columbus this season and hasn't played since Oct. 13.
Nov 14 - 1:26 PM

Artemi Panarin (illness) did not practice on Wednesday.

Panarin was feeling under the weather. He still could be ready for Thursday's match against Florida, though.
