Jackets' Atkinson Reaches 20-Goal Mark

News: Cam Atkinson notched his 20th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche. He now has 36 points in 72 games, giving him a scoring pace of exactly 0.5 points-per-game.
Analysis: After grooming his talents in 117 college games, 89 AHL games, and 62 NHL games prior to this season, Cam Atkinson has broken out in a big way in 2013-2014 - his first full NHL campaign. His 20 goals and 193 shots are both second on the Jackets behind another surprise breakout in Ryan Johansen, and his five game-winning goals are tied for tops on the team as well. Make sure you put a star beside his name for next year's draft.

Atkinson Assists In Columbus Loss

News: Cam Atkinson registered an assist on the lone Columbus goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to Pittsburgh, his second point in as many games.
Analysis: Cam Atkinson had gone nine games without a point before bagging a goal in Tuesday's win over Detroit, so he could be on the cusp of another scoring burst. He's been rather streaky this season, but Atkinson is closing in on a 40-point campaign.

Jackets' Atkinson Bags First Goal In Nine Games

News: Cam Atkinson was credited with the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 4-2 victory over the Red Wings.
Analysis: The goal - Cam Atkinson's first since Mar. 1 - didn't come without controversy. An initial shot by Matt Calvert was stopped by goalie Jimmy Howard before ultimately popping loose behind him. Atkinson then raced from the far side to finish off the loose puck, but was met by Detroit blueliner Brendan Smith, who knocked Atkinson into the net as he put the biscuit in the basket. Video replay confirmed the goal was good, even though Howard vehemently disagreed when talking with reporters after the game. In any case, it was a needed tally for Atkinson, who had become a healthy scratch on a few occasions this month due to his lack of production. He's started to pick things up of late, with 20 shots on goal over his past four games.

Jackets' Atikinson In Lineup Again Friday

News: Cam Atkinson will suit up for his second straight game on Friday.
Analysis: Cam Atkinson is starting in place of R.J. Umberger for the second straight night. Although he didn't record a point in Thursday's contest, he did take five shots in 15:01 of ice time.

Blue Jackets' Atkinson Back In Lineup Thursday

News: Cam Atkinson will return to the lineup Thursday vs. the Sharks, Dan Kamal of FOX Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: A healthy scratch the last three games for the Blue Jackets, Cam Atkinson will likely be replacing Artem Anisimov (personal), who is away from the team as he awaits the birth of his first child. Coach Todd Richards said that Atkinson will have plenty to prove in his return, with a poor performance likely resulting in another prolonged stay in the press box.

Jackets' Atkinson Likely Scratched Again Monday

News: Blue Jackets coach indicated his forward lines would not be changing for Monday's game against the Stars, which would mean Cam Atkinson will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: We're not sure what he did to land in Richards' dog house, but the Jackets can ill afford to be without their third-leading goal scorer in the middle of a playoff chase. We can't imagine Cam Atkinson's stay in the press box will be a long one.

Jackets' Atkinson A Healthy Scratch Saturday

News: Cam Atkinson was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 1-0 win over the Predators.
Analysis: Cam Atkinson has a career high 18 goals and 34 points on the season, but just two points (one goal, one assist) in five games since the Olympic break. The Jackets need his offense though, so look for the feisty winger to rejoin the lineup soon enough.

Cam Atkinson

Goal, Assist For Jackets' Atkinson

News: Cam Atkinson collected a goal and an assist for the second straight game in Thursday's win over the Capitals.
Analysis: This time, though, he improved on Tuesday's line against Ottawa by also going plus-2. The points pushed Cam Atkinson over 30 for the first time in his career.

Jackets' Atkinson Snaps Slump

News: Cam Atkinson ended a four-game scoreless skid with a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: Cam Atkinson's goal and primary assist on the man advantage helped erase a 2-0 deficit, but it wasn't enough in this one. With 16 goals and 29 points on the year, Atkinson's fantasy utility is limited to deeper formats. However, he's been seeing more time with the man advantage lately -- a situation that bears watching, as it could bear further fruit for the talented winger.

Jackets' Atkinson Gets Seventh Point In Last Six

News: Cam Atkinson's assist Saturday gives him three points in his last two games and seven, including five goals, in his last six.
Analysis: He's building on last season and already has new career bests in goals (15) and assists (12). He may bring you another 20 points before season's end.

Jackets' Atkinson Heating Up

News: Cam Atkinson scored twice in Friday's win over Washington, giving him four goals in the last three games.
Analysis: Cam Atkinson remains relevant in deeper leagues and especially keeper leagues as he has been enjoying the Columbus scoring surge of late. He tends to binge on points, but he's seeing enough ice time to generate scoring chances, although he's not producing much on the power play. Keep an eye on him if you're in need of a scoring punch for daily leagues on days with a light slate of games.

Jackets' Atkinson Practices Thursday

News: Cam Atkinson (foot) was back at practice Thursday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Cam Atkinson was held out of Tuesday's session with the foot injury, but it looks like he's going to be fine to play Friday vs. the Capitals. The Blue Jackets will probably play it safe and wait and see how he looks during morning skate before affirming that he'll be in the lineup.

Jackets' Atkinson Expected To Play Friday

News: Cam Atkinson (foot) missed practice Tuesday but is expected to play Friday against the Capitals, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: During Monday's game against Tampa, Cam Atkinson took a shot off his foot. He missed Tuesday's practice as a result, but he'll be afforded a few days of rest before Columbus hosts Washington on Friday.

Atkinson Strong In Columbus Win

News: Cam Atkinson registered a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-0 win over Carolina, giving him a goal in each of the last two games.
Analysis: Cam Atkinson was the victim of line shuffling with the return of Nathan Horton to the Jackets' lineup, but the former has been active the last two games with a two goals and an assist. He's a budding talent in Ohio's capital, but has been a bit streaky this season. Bump him up another spot or two in leagues which reward shots on goal, as he has close to three per game.

Jackets' Atkinson Tumbles Down The Depth Chart

News: Cam Atkinson has lost his spot on the Brandon Dubinsky line to Nathan Horton.
Analysis: Cam Atkinson skated with Blake Comeau and Derek MacKenzie on the fourth line in Horton's season debut Thursday, and saw under 12 minutes of ice time. The diminutive winger has the talent to go on a hot streak, but it'll be much tougher for Atkinson to carve out some fantasy value until he works his way back up the depth chart.

Jackets' Atkinson Scores Shootout Winner Friday

News: Cam Atkinson assisted on the Blue Jackets' lone goal in regulation, then beat Martin Brodeur in the shootout to give Columbus a 2-1 win over the Devils on Friday.
Analysis: He's got four goals and nine points in his last 10 games, and has already set new career highs with 10 goals and 20 points on the season. Cam Atkinson is emerging as a fantasy asset in deep leagues, and if he keeps seeing top-six ice time he could even tease a run at a 50-point season.

Atkinson Busy In Jackets' Win

News: Cam Atkinson scored one of Columbus' four goals in Friday's 4-0 win over Minnesota, also leading all skaters with eight shots on goal.
Analysis: Cam Atkinson has not been shy about shooting the puck this season, averaging over three shots per game. The goal was his first in a while, but he's one of several budding talents in the Columbus lineup. Expect some ebbs in the flow of his production over the season, but be certain to remember his name in keeper leagues.

Jackets' Atkinson Finds Scoresheet Saturday

News: Cam Atkinson scored his first goal (and his first point) in seven games and was a plus-3 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: With just six points (four goals and two assists) in 16 games so far this season Cam Atkinson has been no kind of fantasy asset, but he is capable of going on a tear. Keep an eye on him in deeper leagues.

Jackets' Atkinson Scores Highlight-Reel Goal Tuesday

News: Cam Atkinson scored the Blue Jackets' only goal Tuesday in a 2-1 loss to the Red Wings, skating coast-to-coast and burying his own rebound behind Jonas Gustavsson.
Analysis: He now has two goals and four points in his last four games, and if Cam Atkinson can stay healthy a breakout season appears to be developing. Don't hesitate to snap him up if he's still available in your league.

Jackets' Atkinson Heating Up

News: Cam Atkinson had a goal and an assist with five shots and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-1 stomping of the Sabres.
Analysis: He's got three points in two games since being bumped up to the Marian Gaborik-Brandon Dubinsky line, and with the line showing a lot of chemistry at the moment Cam Atkinson could be in for a nice run of production.

Jackets' Atkinson Notches Shootout Winner

News: Cam Atkinson picked up a power-play assist during regulation, then buried the winner behind Evgeni Nabokov in the shootout in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Isles.
Analysis: The shootout goal probably doesn't matter much in your fantasy league, but the fact that Cam Atkinson skated on the top power-play unit with Marian Gaborik and Brandon Dubinsky certainly does. The little winger is only worth targeting in deeper leagues at the moment, but he does have the talent to get on a hot streak. Keep an eye on him.

Jackets' Atkinson Practices On Top Power Play Unit

News: Cam Atkinson skated on the top power play unit with Marian Gaborik and Artem Anisimov, 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 Cam Atkinson can stick alongside Gaborik even if it's just on the power play, he could see a nice spike in his production.

Blue Jackets' Atkinson Will Not Play Thursday

News: Cam Atkinson will not play in Thursday's preseason game.
Analysis: The reason for Cam Atkinson's absence was not disclosed, but it may have something to do with him sitting out Tuesday's practice, which was originally termed a "maintenance day." It remains to be seen if Atkinson's availability for next week's season opener is in doubt.

Jackets' Atkinson Misses Practice Tuesday

News: Cam Atkinson received what Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards called a "maintenance day" on Tuesday and didn't practice, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: With injuries starting to accumulate on the Jackets' roster, Richards let the diminutive Cam Atkinson take a breather when he reported some general soreness. At this point it looks like he should be fine for the season opener, however.

Jackets' Atkinson Has Two-Point Night

News: Cam Atkinson scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's split-squad preseason win over the Wild.
Analysis: He and Ryan Johansen were the two "veterans" on a mostly inexperienced squad, and each came through with a big game. A healthy Cam Atkinson could be poised for a breakout season, especially if he can see a regular shift on Marian Gaborik's line.
