Blue Jackets Recall Wennberg From AHL Springfield

News: The Blue Jackets recalled Alexander Wennberg from AHL Springfield on Friday, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Alexander Wennberg will return to Columbus to take the place of Brian Gibbons (upper body), who will miss the next 2-to-3 weeks. Wennberg tallied three assists and posted a minus-14 rating in 21 games with the Blue Jackets earlier this season.

Blue Jackets Assign Wennberg To AHL

News: The Blue Jackets assigned Weinberg to AHL Springfield on Saturday, The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Alexander Wennberg has seen limited ice time the last two games, and the Blue Jackets ultimately decided to shake things up, sending him down and recalling fellow forwards Kerby Rychel and Michael Chaput.

Jackets' Wennberg Notches Assist Tuesday

News: Alexander Wennberg picked up a power play assist in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Senators.
Analysis: The rookie has some ugly numbers to begin the season, including a minus-8 rating in eight games, but with the Blue Jackets now down six of their projected top nine forwards due to a plague of injuries, Alexander Wennberg will be asked to shoulder a significant role over the next week or two. He could provide a short term boost to your lineup in deeper leagues.

Jackets Recall Wennberg

News: The Blue Jackets recalled Wenneberg from AHL Springfield on Monday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Alexander Wennberg was just sent down to the AHL on Sunday, but he'll return to fill a roster spot as Matt Calvert (undisclosed) heads to IR.

Jackets Assign Wennberg To AHL Springfield

News: The Blue Jackets assigned Alexander Wennberg to AHL Springfield on Sunday.
Analysis: Alexander Wennberg made the Blue Jackets opening night roster and was eventually able to move up to Columbus' second line due to various injuries on the team. Wennberg is making way for Ryan Murray who was taken off injured reserve on Sunday. In seven games played, Wennberg only managed one assist and a minus-7 rating.

Jackets' Wennberg Shifts To Center

News: Alexander Wennberg will center the Blue Jackets' second line on Thursday, skating between Matt Calvert and Cam Atkinson, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The rookie, who has just one assist and a minus-6 rating through five games, had been working on the wing, but Jackets coach Todd Richards is using the club's West Coast swing as an opportunity to shake up his forward lines. Hopefully, playing his natural position will light a spark under Alexander Wennberg.

Jackets' Wennberg Notches Assist In NHL Debut

News: Alexander Wennberg assisted on Artem Anisimov's third period goal Thursday as the Blue Jackets won their season opener 3-1 in Buffalo.
Analysis: Anisimov's goal came at even strength, but Alexander Wennberg saw nearly four minutes of power play time as well. The rookie will have a long leash given all the Jackets' injuries, but at least through one game Wennberg looks right at home.

Wennberg Cracks Jackets' Final Roster

News: Alexander Wennberg has made the Blue Jackets' Opening Night roster.
Analysis: With all of Boone Jenner, Nathan Horton, Brandon Dubinsky and Brian Gibbons opening the season on injured reserve, room was made for both 2013 first-round picks Alexander Wennberg and Marko Dano to both crack the roster. It will be tough to get a read on whether Wennberg will play the center or the wing until Ryan Johansen arrives in Columbus, but expect the Blue Jackets to support the youngster with two of their more capable forwards.

Jackets' Wennberg Adds Two More Assists

News: Skating between Cam Atkinson and Matt Calvert on Wednesday, Alexander Wennberg picked up two assists in a 6-3 preseason win over the Hurricanes, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He's making it very hard for the Blue Jackets to send him to AHL Springfield, but with Ryan Johansen (contract dispute), Nathan Horton (back) and Boone Jenner (hand) all currently sidelined the club has plenty of vacancies to fill on its forward lines.

Jackets' Wennberg Picks Up Power-Play Assist

News: Alexander Wennberg assisted on Brian Gibbons' power-play goal in Saturday's 2-1 preseason loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Alexander Wennberg led all Blue Jackets forwards in special teams ice time, with over two minutes on the power play and an even three minutes shorthanded. He hasn't won a roster spot yet, but the club is clearly giving him every opportunity to do so.

Jackets' Wennberg Already Impressing

News: Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards was very impressed with his initial look at Alexander Wennberg during the first day of training camp, the Columbus Dispatch reports. "To me, he was at a level above a lot of guys that were (at the Traverse City prospect tournament), which says a lot, because there is some good talent up there," Richards said Friday. "You watch him out here and he fits right in. It's the first day (with) lots of energy, lots of excitement. But he comes across as a ‘headsy' player."
Analysis: Ryan Johansen's contract dispute could open up a spot at center in Columbus on one of the top three lines if it extends into the regular season, and the Jackets would love to see Alexander Wennberg step up and seize it. There's a lot of camp left yet, and the club has plenty of depth with NHL experience to compete with their prospects, but last year's 14th overall pick has the talent, hockey IQ and drive to force the Jackets' hand.

Jackets' Wennberg Finds Net In Traverse City

News: Alexander Wennberg scored an empty-net goal as the Blue Jackets' squad downed the Wild 6-4 in Friday's opener of the Traverse City prospect tournament.
Analysis: The Columbus team at this year's tournament is loaded with talent, headlined by 2013 first-round picks Alexander Wennberg, Kerby Rychel and Marko Dano. All three will likely spend most of the season in the AHL, but if Ryan Johansen's contract dispute extends into the regular season it could open up a spot at center for Wennberg to begin the year with the big club.

Jackets' Wennberg To Get Look In Training Camp

News: Alexander Wennberg will get a chance to earn an NHL roster spot in training camp, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The new regime under GM Jarmo Kekalainen isn't afraid to give young players opportunities, as Boone Jenner and Ryan Murray proved, and Alexander Wennberg seems ready for North America after an impressive showing at the world juniors and a 16-goal campaign in the Swedish Hockey League. He's most likely ticketed for the AHL, but if last year's 14th overall pick wows in camp, don't be surprised if he starts the year in Columbus.

Jackets' Wennberg Signs Entry-Level Deal

News: The Blue Jackets signed Alexander Wennberg, their top pick (14th overall) in last year's draft, to a three-year, entry-level contract on Friday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: After a 16-goal campaign with Frolunda - which saw him earn a spot among the finalists for the Swedish Hockey League's rookie of the year award and another silver medal at the world juniors - Alexander Wennberg figured it was time to give North America a try. He'll be in the thick of the battle to win an NHL spot in training camp, but more likely he'll begin his career on this side of the pond at AHL Springfield.
