Jackets' Calvert: Two Goals, First Star

News: Matt Calvert was on fire Saturday, scoring while shorthanded and then netting the winner in double-OT in a 4-3 victory over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Deservedly, he was named the game's first star. His upside is limited, but he's proving to be clutch.

Jackets' Calvert Finds The Net Friday

News: Matt Calvert scored the Blue Jackets' lone goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Penguins, his first tally in 13 games.
Analysis: Since coming off IR in late February, Matt Calvert has just two goals and five assists in 15 games, with 13 PIM, 29 shots, 23 hits and a minus-2 rating. The Jackets like him for his energy and grit, but even in leagues with a broad range of scoring categories his fantasy value is minimal.

Jackets' Calvert Posts Rare Multi-Point Effort

News: Matt Calvert had his first multi-point game since Nov. 29 in Thursday's win over Philadelphia, collecting a power-play goal and an even-strength assist.
Analysis: Matt Calvert skated nearly six minutes on the man-advantage in this one, by far a season high. It's worth monitoring him in the coming games to see if that man-advantage ice time persists. Calvert's been warming lately, with four points in his last four games and 11 PIM for a side dish.

Blue Jackets' Calvert To Play Thursday

News: Despite missing morning skate, Matt Calvert (foot) will play Thursday vs. the Flyers, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd Richards ended any suspense about Matt Calvert's status for Thursday, declaring him fit to play. It sounds like he was just off the ice in the morning to further aid his recovery, but he should still see his usual allotment of minutes against the Flyers.

Jackets' Calvert Misses Practice

News: Matt Calvert (foot) missed morning skate Thursday, Jeff Rimer of FOX Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Matt Calvert blocked a shot with his foot Tuesday vs. the Kings and appeared to be in some pain after the game. His status is in question for Thursday's tilt with the Flyers.

Jackets' Calvert To Return Friday

News: Matt Calvert (shoulder) is expected back in the lineup against the Hurricanes on Friday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Matt Calvert has missed seven games with the injury. With Nathan Horton now back as well, look for Calvert to slide into a checking line role.

Jackets' Calvert Practices

News: Matt Calvert (shoulder) practiced with the team Wednesday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The winger has been out since Dec. 21 with a sprained shoulder, but looks like he could finally be nearing a return. The Blue Jackets don't play until Friday against the Hurricanes, so there should be more information on his status for that game as the week moves on.

1/5/2014

Matt Calvert, LW, CLB

Matt Calvert

Jackets' Calvert Will Not Play Monday

News: Matt Calvert (shoulder) will not play Monday against the Rangers, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: A sprained AC joint in Matt Calvert's shoulder has sidelined the 24-year-old for two weeks already, and he won't be able to return Monday to face New York. He should be considered questionable heading into Friday's tilt against Carolina. In 17 games prior to the injury, Calvert recorded eight points (4G, 4A) and a plus-3 rating.

1/4/2014

Matt Calvert, LW, CLB

Matt Calvert

Jackets' Calvert Could Be Back Monday

News: Matt Calvert (shoulder) could return from IR on Monday vs. the Rangers, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Matt Calvert was able to rejoin the Blue Jackets in St. Louis on Friday, and while he won't be available for Saturday's game, the team is optimistic his return is right around the corner. He hasn't played since suffering the injury in a Dec. 21 game.

Matt Calvert

Jackets Place Calvert On IR

News: Matt Calvert (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Matt Calvert is not expected to return until Jan. 6 at the earliest, so the Blue Jackets opted to place him on IR and open up some roster flexibility. Jonathan Audy-Marchessault was recalled from AHL Springfield to take his place on the active roster.

Matt Calvert

Jackets' Calvert Close To Return

News: Matt Calvert (shoulder) won't play Tuesday in Denver or Thursday in Phoenix, but could join the Blue Jackets in St. Louis prior to their game on Jan. 4, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Jan. 6 game against the Rangers is the most likely return date for Matt Calvert, but if he's cleared to play, he could suit up against the Blues two days prior.

Blue Jackets' Calvert Out Two To Three Weeks

News: Matt Calvert has a sprained AC joint in his shoulder and will be out for two to three weeks, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Matt Calvert was forced from Saturday's game with the injury, but needed x-rays and an MRI to discover the exact nature and severity of the injury. He will need at least two weeks to recover from the sprain and perhaps another week of rehab to get back into game shape. Expect the team to move him to IR shortly and announce a corresponding move.

Blue Jackets' Calvert Exits With Upper-Body Injury

News: Matt Calvert suffered an upper-body injury and will not return to Saturday's game.
Analysis: Matt Calvert missed six weeks of action with an abdominal tear earlier this season, but he's been quite productive since rejoining the lineup, with eight points in 14 appearances. Another prolonged absence could be a tough blow for the Blue Jackets to handle, particularly with fellow winger Marian Gaborik suffering a broken collarbone during Saturday's game.

Matt Calvert

Jackets' Calvert Will Play Monday

News: Matt Calvert (upper body) will play Monday against the Penguins.
Analysis: The upper-body injury that forced Matt Calvert from Friday's game is evidently not serious, as he will suit up for Monday's game against the Pens. He should be available for his normal run barring a last-minute setback.

Blue Jackets' Calvert Suffers Injury Friday

News: Matt Calvert suffered an upper-body injury in Friday's win over the Wild.
Analysis: Matt Calvert saw about two minutes fewer of action Friday than his average ice time on the season, but otherwise, there was no indication he was hindered by an injury. He'll be monitored over the next couple of days and remains questionable for the team's next game Monday at this juncture.

Jackets' Calvert Takes Three Shots In Loss

News: Matt Calvert paced the Jackets on Wednesday with three shots on goal.
Analysis: Matt Calvert also added four hits in 16:53 of ice time, as the Jackets were shut out by the Predators. Calvert now has one goal and one assist in the three games since returning from injury.

Calvert Scores In Columbus Return

News: Matt Calvert scored one of Columbus' two goals in Friday's loss to Vancouver, his first game since being activated from injured reserve on Thursday.
Analysis: Matt Calvert has played four games this season, missing time due to various injuries. He doesn't have a track record of being a consistent goal scorer, but does the dirty work on the ice for Columbus. The tally in Friday's loss was his first of the season.

Blue Jackets Bring Back Calvert From IR

News: Matt Calvert (abdomen) was activated from IR on Thursday.
Analysis: The roster move clears Matt Calvert to make his return to the lineup Friday, marking his first game since Oct. 10. With injuries to three of their top scorers in Nathan Horton, Marian Gaborik and Brandon Dubinsky, Calvert's return represents some rare good news for the Blue Jackets.

Jackets' Calvert Aiming For Friday Return

News: Matt Calvert (abdomen) is looking to return from injured reserve Friday against the Canucks, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: There was some discussion that Matt Calvert might be a possibility for Tuesday's game, but coach Todd Richards has decided to give him some additional time to recover. Calvert suited up in just three games before requiring abdominal surgery Oct. 15 and hasn't played since.

Blue Jackets' Calvert Uncertain For Tuesday Return

News: Head coach Todd Richards is not sure if Matt Calvert (abdomen) will be activated from injured reserve prior to Tuesday's game against the Oilers.
Analysis: Matt Calvert has been targeting a Nov. 19 return to action, but it appears his status for that game is still up in the air. Calvert's participation, or lack thereof, in Tuesday's morning skate figures to play a key role in whether he will take the ice the same night.

Jackets' Calvert Close To Returning

News: Matt Calvert (abdomen) is targeting November 19 against the Oilers for his return to action, but hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Senators, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He's now missed 15 games so far after undergoing abdominal surgery. Matt Calvert won't have a big offensive impact on his return, but he'll give the Blue Jackets another feisty forechecker.

Jackets' Calvert Returns To Practice

News: Matt Calvert (abdomen) returned to practice Monday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Matt Calvert has missed 13 games after undergoing abdominal surgery in mid-October, depriving the Blue Jackets of one of their fastest skaters on the wing for much of the season. Coach Todd Richards said he's hoping the forward will be ready to return early next week for back-to-back games against Edmonton and Calgary.

Jackets' Calvert Skates Friday

News: Matt Calvert (abdomen) skated again during Friday's practice.
Analysis: Matt Calvert has been skating regularly throughout the week and appears close to a return, though it may not come this weekend. He's been sidelined since Oct. 12 due to the injury.

Jackets' Calvert Skates Tuesday Morning

News: Matt Calvert (abdomen) skated with the team trainer Tuesday morning, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Matt Calvert will likely continue to skate separate from the team through the remainder of the week but could join the main group for practice next week. Abdominal injuries tend to have somewhat volatile timetables, however, so Calvert may need more practice time than players coming back from other injuries would require before the Blue Jackets activate him.

Blue Jackets' Calvert To Have Abdominal Surgery

News: Matt Calvert will have abdominal surgery Tuesday and is expected to miss an extended period of time, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blue Jackets haven't provided a timetable, as the 23-year-old forward is likely out indefinitely. Matt Calvert hasn't scored a point through three games this year, after tallying 16 in 42 contests last season. Sean Collins has been recalled from AHL Springfield to replace Calvert on the roster.
