By Kevin Mayes

Nick Blankenburg made his NHL debut Wednesday versus the Canadiens and finished with a plus-one rating, one assist, one hit and five blocked shots in 16:46 of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: Blankenburg signed a one year, entry level deal on Friday before making his first start this week. The 23 year old is listed at only 5'9" 174lbs so hopefully he can bring over his offensive play from college.

Jack Roslovic put on a show for the second game in a row, scoring two goals in a 5-1 win after scoring a hat trick the previous game.

Fantasy Impact: Roslovic has five goals and an assist over his last two games and is up to 17 goals and 38 points in 73 games played this season. He's been a non-factor most of this year in fantasy but anyone who is still starting him has been rewarded these past couple games.

Gustav Nyquist tallied his 28th and 29th assists on the year to help Columbus to a 5-1 win over Montreal.

Fantasy Impact: Nyquist recorded his second multi-assist game in a row brining his point total to 46 in 74 games played this season. The 32 year old has had a solid second year with Columbus and is eight points shy of his career high.

Elvis Merzlikins made 20 saves on 21 shots against as Columbus cruised to a 5-1 win at home over the Canadiens.

Fantasy Impact: Merzlikins improved to 25-19-6 with a 3.35 goals against average and .904 save percentage this season. The third year pro has had a rough year on the stat sheet but has more then doubled his career wins with 25 this year.

Patrik Laine factored in on the Blue Jackets first three goals en route to a 5-1 win over the Canadiens Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Laine has struggled as of late having scored zero goals in his last 10 games, but the Finn did record five assists over that same stretch. The 23-year-old broke his drought with a power play goal from a tough angle towards the end of the second period. The performance moves Laine back above a point-per-game pace with 26 goals and 30 assists in 55 games this season.

Vladislav Gavrikov had a shorthanded assisted on the Blue Jackets lone goal in the first period as Columbus lost 4-1 at home to the Flyers.

Fantasy Impact: Gavrikov is having his best season as a pro with career highs in goals(5), assists(26) and points(31) in a single season high 70 games played. Fantasy managers who picked him up off waivers early in the season have been rewarded with solid stats for a defenseman.

Zach Werenski recorded an assist on teammate Carson Meyer's first career NHL goal as Columbus won 4-2 in Philadelphia.

Fantasy Impact: Werenski is up to 33 assists, 44 points, 205 shots on goal, 31 hits and 88 blocked shots in 62 games played this season. He's a great fantasy defenseman in all league formats.

Voracek added his first helper to Emil Bemstrom for the first goal of the game and later picked up his second helper to Zach Werenski to tie the game at two to close the second period. Patrik Lane was also in with a secondary assist for his 27th of the season. Columbus couldn’t score the rest of the way and went on to lose 3-2 in overtime.

Fantasy Impact: Voracek moves to 46 assists and now has 51 points in 67 games-played. Columbus has now lost all three games against the Bruins this season.

Joonas Korpisalo stopped six of nine shots in a 7-2 loss to the Capitals. All three goals against were scored even strength and resulted in him getting pulled after 21:20 of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: Korpisalo falls to 6-11-0 this season. He has struggled this season and is not a fantasy viable option.

Oliver Bjorkstrand tallied his 22nd goal of the season in a 7-2 loss to Washington. He finished with a -3 rating and seven SOG.

Category: Game Recaps

Max Domi tallied his 23rd assist of the season in a 7-2 loss to the Capitals. He finished with a -1 rating and three SOG.

Fantasy Impact: Domi has points in three of his last five games. The center has 32 points in 52 games, but is likely a bench option at best right now.

Sean Kuraly got his first two goals of the season in Columbus' 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Kuraly's physical presence on the Blue Jacket's fourth line is key, but doesn't offer any fantasy relevance.

Seth Jones had two assists during a 6-5 loss to Carolina. He also had three blocks, two shots on net, and one hit in 25:10 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: This season in 13 games, Jones has one goal and four assists but a troubling minus-nine rating. The addition of Patrik Laine perhaps will give Jones a boost in scoring, as two of his assists came off Laine goals in the loss to Carolina.
