Jackets' Anisimov Nets Two Points In Loss

News: Artem Anisimov buried his fourth goal of the season, had an assist and fired five shots on goal in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: That's points in back-to-back games for the 26-year-old, who now has 13 points in 28 games on the season. His value is limited due to his third-line role, but Artem Anisimov can produce at a decent rate and is a 40-50 point guy when fully healthy.

Jackets' Anisimov Sinks Flyers In OT

News: Artem Anisimov played hero Friday, potting the overtime winner against the Flyers.
Analysis: The third-line center has recorded three points in his last four games, giving him three goals and 10 points in 23 games on the season. Although he's fairly inconsistent, he's still a solid depth scorer who can pay fantasy dividends in deeper formats.

Jackets' Anisimov Picks Up Assist In Return

News: Artem Anisimov (triceps) picked up an assist in his return to the ice on Thursday.
Analysis: He's being eased back into action by coach Todd Richards, and his fantasy ceiling wasn't that high to begin with, so don't rush out to grab Artem Anisimov now that he's back. He has much more value to the Blue Jackets than he does to any fantast owner.

Blue Jackets Activate Anisimov

News: Artem Anisimov (triceps) was activated from injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: As anticipated, this confirms that Artem Anisimov will suit up for Thursday's game against the Panthers. The 26-year-old missed 23 games due to the torn triceps and had already sat out another seven earlier in the season with an upper-body injury, limiting his impact thus far for the Blue Jackets. He'll center the club's third line in his return to action.

Blue Jackets' Anisimov On Track To Return Thursday

News: Artem Anisimov (triceps) will likely play in Thursday's game against the Panthers, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blue Jackets will not release an official status update on Artem Anisimov until later Thursday, but early indications point to him suiting up for the first time since Nov. 29.

Jackets' Anisimov Practices Fully Wednesday

News: Artem Anisimov (triceps) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov will be examined by team doctors later Wednesday before it's determined whether or not he'll travel with the team to South Florida for Thursday's game against the Panthers. If doctors give him the green light to play, there's a good chance he'll be activated from IR following Thursday's morning skate.

Jackets' Anisimov Could Be Cleared Next Week

News: General manager Jarmo Kekalainen said Artem Anisimov (triceps) could be cleared to play next week, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov has been sidelined since late November with the injury. He's been limited to skating on his own to this point, but Kekalainen's words suggest he could be close to rejoining the team for a full-contact practice. Once that happens, the Blue Jackets will likely have a better inkling of a possible return date for the center.

Jackets' Anismiov Says Return Is Imminent

News: Artem Anisimov (triceps) said Tuesday that he was "close" to a return, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov has been out since late November with a torn triceps, but has been skating for over a week. It appears he's noticing progress with his recovery, but Anisimov said he still needs a little more time to "get the power back." He could be cleared to participate in full-contact practices in the near future.

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Resumes Light Skating

News: Artem Anisimov (triceps) has resumed light skating.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov is making progress as he recovers from a torn triceps, but he is only one month into his expected two-to-three month absence, so an activation shouldn't be considered forthcoming.

Jackets' Anisimov Out 2-3 Months

News: Artem Anisimov is expected to miss 2-3 months with a torn triceps muscle.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov got hurt Saturday against the Predators, but the severity of his injury was originally unknown. The team moved the center to IR on Monday as well to free up a roster spot on their already injury-plagued roster.

Jackets' Anisimov Not Dealing With Concussion

News: Although Blue Jackets' coach Todd Richards didn't indicate the exact nature of the upper body injury that will keep Artem Anisimov out of the lineup Monday, he did clarify on Sunday that it wasn't a concussion, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Given Artem Anisimov's concussion history, that's good news for the Jackets. There's still no word on how long he might be sidelined, however.

Jackets Rule Anisimov (Upper Body) Out For Monday

News: Artem Anisimov will miss Monday's game against the Panthers.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov will be further evaluated by team doctors at some point Sunday, meaning more news could become available. He will miss a minimum of one game, but the evaluation should shed light on if that will turn into more. The Blue Jackets don't play again until Thursday, however, which could provide him enough rest if the injury is minor.

Jackets' Anisimov Injures Upper Body

News: Artem Anisimov suffered an upper-body injury during Saturday's game against the Predators and was not able to return.
Analysis: It's still undetermined how severe Artem Anisimov's injury is, and he should consequentially be considered day-to-day moving forward. The Blue Jackets don't play again until Monday, so Anisimov will get a day off to rest and recover.

Jackets' Anisimov (Concussion) To Play Saturday

News: Artem Anisimov (concussion) was activated from injured reserve and will return to the lineup Saturday, the Columbus Dispatch's Shawn Mitchell reports.
Analysis: The injury-ravaged Blue Jackets are slowly getting healthier. Look for Artem Anisimov to slot back in on the third line for now, with Adam Cracknell and Alexander Wennberg flanking him on the wings.

Artem Anisimov

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Could Return Saturday

News: Head coach Todd Richards said there is a small chance Artem Anisimov (concussion) will play Saturday against the Sharks, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Richards' comments essentially rule Artem Anisimov out for Friday's game, but it's possible he could return to action Saturday after taking part in a full-contact practice Thursday. Anisimov appears close to playing, so even if he ends up sitting again Saturday, it seems he could return to action sometime next week.

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Will Travel To Philadelphia

News: Artem Anisimov (concussion) will travel with the Blue Jackets to Philadelphia for Friday's game.
Analysis: The team probably won't decide on Artem Anisimov status for the game until evaluating after their morning skate that day. Anisimov resumed skating with the team Wednesday and practiced in a full-contact capacity Thursday, suggesting he'll be good to go against the Flyers if he's able to avoid any late recurrence of the concussion symptoms.

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Cleared For Contact

News: Artem Anisimov (concussion) shed his "no contact" sweater for Thursday's practice.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov has made significant progress in his recovery the last couple days, returning to the ice Wednesday and doing even more Thursday than he did the day before. It seems there is a decent chance Anisimov could return for the Blue Jackets' next game Friday.

Jackets' Anisimov Skates Wednesday

News: Artem Anisimov (concussion) skated with the Blue Jackets on Wednesday in a red non-contact sweater, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It's a sign Artem Anisimov concussion symptoms appear to have subsided at this point, but he'll continue to follow the league protocol in the event he suffers a setback at some point. In any event, it appears that if he's able to get in a full-contact practice Thursday, Anisimov could be an option for Friday's tilt with the Flyers.

Jackets' Anisimov Making Progress

News: General manager Jarmo Kekalainen said Artem Anisimov (head) is "progressing," but remains without a timetable for a return, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov has yet to resume skating since suffering the concussion Oct. 28 and probably won't have a clearer return timetable until he does so. The Blue Jackets' avalanche of injuries is beginning to catch up with them, as the team enters Tuesday's game against the Capitals riding an eight-game losing streak.

Jackets Place Anisimov On IR

News: The Blue Jackets placed Artem Anisimov (concussion) on IR on Monday.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov suffered the concussion Tuesday against the Senators, so he'll be eligible to be activated for Friday's game against the Hurricanes if he's ready. Boone Jenner (hand) was activated off IR on Monday and will take Anisimov's spot on the roster.

Jackets' Anisimov Expected To Miss One Week

News: Artem Anisimov left Tuesday's game with a concussion, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov left Tuesday's game with what was first reported as an upper-body injury, but now has been confirmed to be a concussion. The one-week timetable is somewhat speculative, as concussions can vary in terms of recovery time. The Blue Jackets are extremely short-handed right now with nine players listed as injured. Six of those are forwards, so the loss of Anisimov will certainly be felt in addition to the rest of the injured Jackets.

Jackets' Anisimov To Receive Evaluation Wednesday

News: Artem Anisimov (upper body) will be receive further evaluation Wednesday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blue Jackets are already putting Artem Anisimov through the league's concussion protocol, though it hasn't been confirmed whether or not he passed his preliminary tests. Even if he's cleared of any head injury, Anisimov is probably at least dealing with some residual soreness after he was leveled by the Sens' Eric Gryba on Tuesday, falling hard on the ice in the process.

Jackets' Anisimov Leaves With Upper-Body Injury

News: Artem Anisimov exited Tuesday's game against the Senators with an upper-body injury and will not return, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov was on the receiving end of a leveling from Ottawa's Eric Gryba, who was assessed a five-minute major and 10-minute game misconduct penalty. The Blue Jackets should have a clearer idea on the extent of Anisimov's injury Wednesday, but the team can ill afford to lose another forward with Nathan Horton, Boone Jenner, Brandon Dubinsky and Matt Calvert on injured reserve and Nick Foligno day-to-day with a neck injury.

Jackets' Anisimov Pots Goal

News: Artem Anisimov potted a third-period goal in Thursday's season-opening victory over the Sabres.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov skated for 18:45 over his 23 shifts, winning only five of his 17 faceoffs. Minutes should be plentiful for Anisimov while Brandon Dubinsky remains on injured reserve, but he likely won't provide much more than a half-point per game.

Two Helpers For Jackets' Anisimov

News: Artem Anisimov picked up a pair of assists in Tuesday's overtime win against Phoenix.
Analysis: With five points in his last six games, Artem Anisimov's on one of his warmer streaks. He tends to run hot and cold, so it might not be a bad idea to snag him while he's producing here at the end of the regular season.
