Alexander Wennberg

Columbus Blue Jackets

Alex Wennberg got his 8th assist of the season on Oliver Bjorkstrand’s first period power play goal in the Blue Jackets 2–1 win over the Capitals.

Fantasy Impact: Alex Wennberg has had a rough start to the season. Wennberg has 0 goals and 8 assists through 16 games. Very mediocre numbers from someone who scored 59 points two seasons ago. With only third line even strength duty and second power play duty he may be hard pressed to improve his totals. At the moment Wennberg is only good for a speculative add in deep leagues.
