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.

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.

Artem Anisimov

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.

Artem Anisimov

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.

Artem Anisimov

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.

Artem Anisimov

Anisimov On Board For Columbus

News: Artem Anisimov notched a power-play goal in Friday's 4-3 loss to Chicago, his second goal in three games.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov has been giving Columbus steady secondary scoring all season, with 21 goals through 76 contests. He's a versatile forward who is solid defensively while seeing over two minutes of power-play time a game.

Artem Anisimov

Jackets' Anisimov: Two-Point Night Breaks Slump

News: Artem Anisimov snapped an eight-game point drought with a goal and an assist in Saturday's overtime win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The goal was his 20th of the season, but he only has 35 points in 73 games. He's been a study of contrasts -- droughts and streaks. And that makes him a tough activation in most formats. He'll soon be 26, so maybe this is all he'll be.

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Rejoins Team

News: Artem Anisimov (personal) will rejoin the Blue Jackets before Saturday's game vs. the Wild, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: After Artem Anisimov's wife gave birth Thursday without any complications, the center will spend Friday with his family before returning to work. His return likely bumps Cam Atkinson to the press box for Saturday's game.

3/13/2014

Artem Anisimov

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Officially Out Thursday

News: Artem Anisimov (personal) in Thursday's game against the Sharks.
Analysis: As expected, Artem Anisimov will miss a game to attend to the birth of his child. Matt Frattin slots into the lineup Thursday, while Anisimov will likely be back for Saturday's contest against the Wild.

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Expected To Sit Thursday

News: Artem Anisimov (personal) is not expected to play Thursday vs. the Sharks, Dan Kamal of FOX Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd Richards already said that Cam Atkinson would enter the lineup Thursday, with Artem Anisimov looking like the easy scratch as he awaits the birth of his first child. Look for Anisimov to return to the lineup Saturday vs. the Wild.

Jackets' Anisimov Not On Ice For Morning Skate

News: Artem Anisimov (personal) was not on the ice for morning skate Thursday.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov's wife is expecting the couple's first child, putting his status in doubt for Thursday's game vs. the Sharks. The Blue Jackets haven't officially ruled him out for the game, but the team should relay word before warmups as to whether or not the forward will be available.

Artem Anisimov

Jackets' Anisimov Nets Winner

News: Artem Anisimov scored the Jackets' only goal in a 1-0 win Saturday over the Predators. He has six goals and one assist in his last six games.
Analysis: Stick in the spurs and ride him hard -- these streaks do come to an end. Still, the goal was his 19th and that's a new career mark.

Artem Anisimov, C, CLB Anisimov's Two Goals Boost Jackets

Artem Anisimov

Anisimov's Two Goals Boost Jackets

News: Artem Anisimov scored two goals in Tuesday's win over Columbus, one of them coming on the power play. He's got goals in four consecutive games.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov's been on fire since the end of the Olympic break, as he's scored five goals in four games since the resumption of NHL play. He's done that on just seven shots on goal, which is impressive, but not exactly a promising harbinger of continued success. Anisimov hasn't taken more than two shots on goal in a game since Jan. 25.

Artem Anisimov

Jackets' Anisimov Returning To Columbus

News: Artem Anisimov has 13 goals and 13 assists in 58 games up through the Olympic break.
Analysis: The center will return to Columbus in the next couple days after a disappointing Olympics for Team Russia. He'll look to turn things around when NHL games resume.

Jackets' Anisimov Snaps Skid

News: Artem Anisimov notched a goal, an assist, two PIM, two hits and a plus-2 in Tuesday's win over Los Angeles.
Analysis: It was his first goal since Jan. 4, and marked the end of a 10-game slide in which he'd managed just a goal and two assists. At this point in his career, the 25-year-old Artem Anisimov is what he is -- a talented, but somewhat enigmatic forward who's good for about half a point per game.

1/4/2014

Artem Anisimov, C, CLB

Artem Anisimov

Jackets' Anisimov Nets 12th

News: Artem Anisimov scored his 12th goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: He has just 20 points in 42 games despite all that talent -- maybe he is just a 40-point (ish) player. He is on track to improve on his career goal total and he might even crack the 20-goal plateau. That makes him a decent filler in deep leagues.

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Stays Hot Friday

News: Artem Anisimov contributed the Blue Jackets' lone goal of the night in Friday's shootout win over the Devils.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov has just 19 points in 38 games, but he's currently in the midst of his best run of the season, delivering four goals and three assists over his last seven games. The point production should eventually start tapering off, but fantasy owners shouldn't hesitate to use Anisimov while he's riding high.

Jackets' Anisimov Has Two-Point Night

News: Artem Anisimov scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's 4-3 win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He's now got three goals and six points in his last six games. Enjoy the hot streak while it lasts, though, as Artem Anisimov is still only on pace for his usual 40-ish-point season.
