Fantasy Impact:

After Werenski's contract situation was publicly called out by his head coach John Tortorella, the D-man has finally agreed to a bridge deal that will keep him with CBJ. At just 22 years of age, Werenski already has three solid seasons under his belt, most recently putting up 44 points in 82 games in 2018-19. The Blue Jackets are going to have a different look to them after the departures of Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky, but Werenski remains locked into his top-pairing minutes, with some power-play opportunity sure to be sprinkled in as well.
