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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Nets Eighth Goal

News: Artem Anisimov scored his eighth goal of the season in Thursday's 4-2 win over his old team, the Rangers.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov has fallen off a bit from last year's pace but not to a particularly worrisome extent. After tallying 18 points (11 goals) in 35 appearances during the 2012-13 campaign, he has 13 points (eight goals) through 32 games this season. Having said that, Thursday's goal was Anisimov's first since Nov. 29 and just his fourth since the beginning of November.

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Scores Goal In Win

News: Artem Anisimov scored his seventh goal of the season during the Blue Jackets' 4-2 win over the Oilers on Friday.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov's goal came on an early power play for the Blue Jackets in the second period and helped to open the floodgates as Columbus pumped home two more in the period to break things wide open. He now has three points in his last four games.

Anisimov Scores In Columbus Loss

News: Artem Anisimov tallied one of the Blue Jackets' two goals in Friday's loss to Vancouver, his second point in five contests.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov has a modest nine points through 23 games and typically goes a handful of games between scoring.

Anisimov Scores In Columbus Loss

News: Artem Anisimov grabbed one of Columbus' two goals in Friday's shootout loss to Montreal.
Analysis: Anismov has been quiet this season with just five goals on the year. He had his shootout attempt saved on Friday evening. He brings a well-rounded game to the ice for the Blue Jackets but much of what he does won't translate into the box score.

Jackets' Anisimov Returns To Practice

News: Artem Anisimov returned to Wednesday's practice after being hit in the face with a puck, Dan Kamal of FoxSports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov left the ice after taking a puck to the mouth, but appears to be fine after returning to the ice. The Jackets take on the Penguins on Friday, and all signs point toward Anisimov suiting up for that game at this point.

Jackets' Anisimov Hit In Face With Puck

News: Artem Anisimov left Wednesday's practice after being hit in the face with a puck, Dan Kamal of FoxSports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov left the ice to get patched up after taking a puck to the mouth area, and there's no word yet on his status. It's most likely that he'll just need some minor dental work before suiting up Friday against the Penguins, but there's always a chance that he could miss some time.

Blue Jackets' Anisimov Scores Twice

News: Artem Anisimov scored two goals, including a shorthander, Sunday against the Ducks.
Analysis: Artem Anisimov has four goals and seven points in 11 games this season. He scored 18 points in 35 games last year in his first season with Columbus.

Anisimov Nets Jackets' Only Goal

News: Artem Anisimov scored Columbus' only goal in a 4-1 loss to Washington on Saturday. He now has a point in each of his last two games.
Analysis: He's scuffled a bit after suffering a minor lower-body injury late in training camp, but this could be the boost he needs to start delivering some points. It remains to be seen if he can be anything more than a 40-point guy, though.

Jackets' Anisimov Practicing On Top Power Play Unit

News: Artem Anisimov (lower body) was back at practice Tuesday and skated on the top power play unit with Marian Gaborik and Cam Atkinson, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Given the club's struggles with the man advantage last season, coach Todd Richards will probably experiment a lot with his power play units until he finds a group that clicks. Still, if Artem Anisimov can stick alongside Gaborik even if it's just on the power play, he could see a nice spike in his production.

Jackets' Anisimov Misses Practice Monday

News: Artem Anisimov (lower body) didn't practice Monday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He should be available for Friday's season opener, but Artem Anisimov's status should become clearer over the next couple of days.

Jackets' Anisimov Suffers Minor Lower-Body Injury

News: Artem Anisimov didn't play in the third period of Thursday's final preseason game due to a minor lower-body injury, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jackets coach Todd Richards downplayed the severity of the issue, saying "I"m not sure if you'd even call it an injury," so we expect Artem Anisimov will be fine for the regular season opener.
