Columbus' Letestu Surging Near Season's End

News: Mark Letestu potted his 11th goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Mark Letestu has now scored goals in three consecutive games and has five points in his last five contests. It hasn't resulted in much of an increase in ice time yet, but it should lock him into a top-six role during the playoffs.

Jackets' Letestu Has Two-Point Night

News: Mark Letestu scored a goal and added an assist in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: He's not a big fantasy asset, but Mark Letestu now has nine goals and a career-high 31 points on the season, mainly thanks to a career-high 78 games played.

Jackets' Letestu: Eight Points In Last Eight

News: Mark Letestu scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's loss to Buffalo.
Analysis: Eight points in eight games? And that includes five goals -- the guy only has seven on the season. This will not continue for long, but Mark Letestu could provide a cool drink of water for your parched squad. Just be prepared to drop him again when this all dries up.

Mark Letestu

Jackets' Letestu Scores Again Friday

News: Mark Letestu scored a power-play goal Friday, giving him four goals and five points in his last four games.
Analysis: That's three straight games with special teams goals for Mark Letestu, although he sees more ice time on the penalty kill than the power play. He's capable of going on a bit of a tear, especially with the whole Blue Jackets team playing well right now, but if you do pick him up for a short-term boost don't hesitate to cut Letestu loose once he cools down again.

Jackets' Letestu Scores Twice In Win

News: Mark Letestu scored twice, including once while short handed, in Saturday's 6-3 win over Winnipeg. He has four points, including three goals, in his last four games.
Analysis: He has just 18 points, including four goals, in 45 games this season. He's struggling in the face-off circle and is under 50 percent for the first season in his career. And he's not delivering much by way of hits, blocks or PIM. We just can't recommend him right now.

Jackets' Letestu Finally Finds Back Of Net Again

News: Mark Letestu scored his first goal in 40 games in the Blue Jackets' 6-2 loss to the Blues.
Analysis: He is way off his previous pace as a Jacket, as Mark Letestu has just two goals and 15 points in 42 games this season, and barring a lineup shuffle that gets him regular power play time or a top-six placement that doesn't seem likely to change much any time soon.

Blue Jackets' Letestu Notches Two Assists

News: Mark Letestu had two assists against the Hurricanes on Monday.
Analysis: Mark Letestu has 13 assists on the season, but he only has one goal, which is concerning from a fantasy perspective.

11/25/2013

Mark Letestu, C, CLB

Mark Letestu

Jackets' Letestu Picks Up Two Assists Monday

News: Mark Letestu notched two assists in Monday's 6-0 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Mark Letestu's mostly been stuck on the fourth line this season, collecting just one goal and seven points in 23 games. Unless injuries gut the Jackets' roster and he gets a top-six placement, don't look for a big resurgence from Letestu.

Jackets' Letestu Remains On Fourth Line

News: Mark Letestu continued to skate with Derek Mackenzie and Jared Boll on the Blue Jackets' fourth line during Friday's practice, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He'll get a chance for a higher placement later in the season but for now Mark Letestu's fantasy potential is limited with those linemates, although he is still seeing time on the point with the second power play unit. Through three games, Letestu has just one goal (a power-play tally) on five shots and a minus-1 rating.

Blue Jackets' Letestu Notches Three Points

News: Mark Letestu scored two goals, including a power-play tally, and added an assist against the Sharks on Sunday.
Analysis: Mark Letestu has 26 points in 44 games. He's earned a two-year extension from Columbus, but he hasn't done enough to earn fantasy consideration in most leagues.

Blue Jackets Lock Up Letestu

News: Mark Letestu has signed a two-year, $2.5 million extension with the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: His nine goals and 11 assists in 34 games actually ranks him second on the team in scoring, but that's more an indictment of the Blue Jackets' offense than a glowing recommendation for Mark Letestu. He's a solid depth forward who's asked to fill a little bigger role in Columbus due to their lack of talent up front, and he's more valuable to the Jackets than he is to fantasy owners.

Jackets, Letestu Close To Multi-Year Extension

News: Mark Letestu is close to reaching a multi-year contract extension with the Blue Jackets, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The 28-year-old is in the final year of his two-year contract, but it seems the Blue Jackets will pony up to keep Mark Letestu around for at least a couple more years. He has 20 points (9G, 11A) in 34 games this season.

Blue Jackets' Letestu Has Goal, Assist

News: Mark Letestu scored the game-winning goal and added an assist against the Ducks on Sunday. He was also a plus-2.
Analysis: Mark Letestu now has nine goals and 20 points in 34 games so far. He has also scored two points in each of his last two games.

Mark Letestu

Letestu Sharp In Jackets' Win

News: Mark Letestu registered a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-4 win over Columbus, giving him a modest 18 points through 33 games.
Analysis: Mark Letestu is finishing up the final year of a two-year contract he signed with Pittsburgh before his trade to Columbus. His numbers are serviceable on this upstart Blue Jackets squad, making him worth a look in very deep leagues if you need forward help.

Jackets' Letestu Scores Lone Goal For Columbus

News: Mark Letestu was the only Blue Jacket to beat Roberto Luongo in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: He's got six points (one goal, five assists) in his last eight games, but this is more a case of the Blue Jackets' rising tide lifting his boat rather than him leading the charge. As long as the club stays hot he'll have a little fantasy value, though.

2/26/2013

Mark Letestu, C, CLB

Mark Letestu

Jackets' Letestu Notches Two Assists

News: Mark Letestu picked up a pair of assists in Tuesday's overtime loss to Dallas.
Analysis: In the horror show that has been the Jackets' season, Mark Letestu has been a rare bright spot, tallying a somewhat respectable 10 points in 18 games, performing well on faceoffs and going plus-2 on the year for a team with a minus-18 goal differential.

Mark Letestu

Jackets' Letestu Has A Two-Point Night

News: Mark Letestu picked up a power-play goal and added an assist at even strength in Thursday's overtime loss to the Flames.
Analysis: He was also a plus-2 on the night and won 10 of 15 faceoffs. Mark Letestu has responded since being moved onto what the Blue Jackets laughingly call a scoring line, notching three goals and five points in his last five games while playing about 15 minutes per night. He won't maintain that pace, but owners in deeper leagues may want to take a chance on getting some short-term value out of him.

Jackets' Letestu Hits The Scoresheet Saturday

News: Mark Letestu picked up his first goal of the season Saturday.
Analysis: He's appeared in just three of five games so far and was on the ice for just eight minutes on Saturday, so while Cam Atkinson's injury does open up a top-six opportunity in the short term it doesn't look like Mark Letestu will be the guy to take advantage of it.

Jackets' Letestu A Healthy Scratch For Opener

News: Mark Letestu was in the press box for Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Predators.
Analysis: Ryan Johansen beat him out for a spot centering Vinny Prospal and Nick Foligno, so while no one on the Jackets' roster is exactly a lock to keep their jobs Mark Letestu may have to wait for an injury to get his chance at regular action.

Jackets' Letestu On Third Line To Open Camp

News: Mark Letestu skated on a line with Vinny Prospal and Nick Foligno on the first day of training camp, Rob Mixer of BlueJackets.com reports.
Analysis: It's hard to say what even constitutes a top-six line for the talent-thin Jackets, but this seems more like a solid group that can be used in any situation rather than a scoring unit. The presence of skilled wingers like Prospal and Foligno is a plus, but Mark Letestu's ceiling is still limited.

Letestu Scores Again For Blue Jackets

News: Mark Letestu scored on Sunday, giving him five goals and eight points in his last 10 games.
Analysis: He's found life on the Jackets' second line, and is now skating between Rick Nash and Vinny Prospal. He'll probably provide some decent value over the final games of the season.

Jackets' Letestu Snaps Long Goal Drought

News: Mark Letestu scored twice in Thursday's win over Los Angeles, his first goals since Dec. 18.
Analysis: He did miss time in that span with a broken hand, but still, Mark Letestu had gone 16 games without a goal and managed only a modest seven assists in that time.

Mark Letestu

Assist In Return For Jackets' Letestu

News: Mark Letestu got right back in the action Tuesday in his return to the ice from a hand injury, collecting a power-play assist in 13:21 of ice time.
Analysis: He also took sit shots on goal and delivered a couple hits, so it was an active game for Mark Letestu. The undrafted Albertan has been productive in the AHL, and he should be a solid source of secondary (or perhaps tertiary) scoring in deep leagues.

Jackets Activate Letestu From IR

News: The Blue Jackets activated Mark Letestu from injured reserve Tuesday, according to the team's official Twitter page.
Analysis: It looks like Mark Letestu may play Tuesday night against St. Louis. He's only played in 25 games so far this season, recording 10 points (5G, 5A) in those contests. He's a goal-scorer (14 last season), and he should play a prominent role with the Jackets going forward.

Letestu May Return To Jackets Lineup Tuesday

News: Mark Letestu (hand) could be back in the lineup Tuesday night against the Blues, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: We should have a better idea of his status after the morning skate. Don't activate him until we have an idea who his linemates will be when he returns, though.
