Jackets' Dubinsky Out Indefinitely With Concussion

News: Coach Todd Richards announced Saturday that Brandon Dubinsky has a concussion and has been ruled out indefinitely, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Few teams have been hit harder by injuries this season than the Blue Jackets, and Brandon Dubinsky looks to be just the latest of the team's casualties. Dubinsky had already been limited to 34 games this season after requiring abdominal surgery in early October and missing two months of action. His loss will thrust Alexander Wennberg into duty as the Jackets' second-line center.

Jackets' Dubinsky Questionable For Saturday

News: Brandon Dubinsky (upper body) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Devils, after leaving Friday's practice early, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky was forced out of Thursday's game against the Canadiens in the first period, and while he then took the ice for Friday's practice, he apparently wasn't a full participant.

Blue Jackets' Dubinsky (Upper Body) Practicing

News: Brandon Dubinsky (upper body) is participating in Friday's practice, Rob Mixer of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky left Thursday's game against the Canadiens after logging just 0:50 of ice time, though he did still manage to find the back of the net in the 5-2 loss. His participation in Friday's practice indicates that he may be able to make a quick return for Saturday's game against the Devils.

Jackets' Dubinsky (Upper Body) Leaves Thursday

News: Brandon Dubinsky suffered an upper-body injury in Thursday's game against the Canadiens and will not return, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky scored a goal just 2:43 into the contest, but will finish the start to a promising night with just 0:50 of ice time. The injury comes at an unfortunate time, as the center has five points in the last six games (including Thursday's contest). There's no indication on the severity of the injury, but the team should reveal some information on it at some point before Saturday's game against the Devils.

Brandon Dubinsky

Dubinsky's Goal, Fight Lift Jackets

News: Brandon Dubinsky lured Sidney Crosby into a fight and scored the game-winning goal while shorthanded Thursday against the Penguins.
Analysis: That's about as well as you can play against Pittsburgh, as it takes a lot to goad Crosby into encouraging you to drop the gloves. Terrific work by Dubi, who's scored goals in four consecutive games now -- he has a total of six points, a plus-5 rating, seven PIM and 20 hits in that span.

Dubinsky Stuffs Stat Sheet As Jackets Roll

News: Brandon Dubinsky scored a goal, assisted on another, went plus-1, gathered two penalty minutes and dished out seven hits Tuesday in a win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: He was a big part of the Jackets' three-goal third period, helping out on the game-winning goal and then adding some cushion himself. Dubi's now scored in three straight games, with five points, a plus-4 rating and 16 hits to show for that span.

Brandon Dubinsky

Jackets' Dubinsky Records Two Points In Win

News: Brandon Dubinsky scored his fourth goal of the season and had an assist in Friday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky now one goal, four points, and a plus-6 rating in his last four games. While he's turned it up recently, the 28-year-old has still been held without a point in seven of his last nine outings. The second-liner has 16 points in 27 games, though, so if you can deal with his inconsistent spouts, Dubinsky could be worth looking at.

Jackets' Dubinsky Collects Two Assists

News: Brandon Dubinsky collected two assists and dished out four hits in Friday's blowout win over the Blues.
Analysis: A great all-around outing for Brandon Dubinsky, who snapped a five-game scoring drought. Centering the second line, Dubinsky is capable of contributing in multiple fantasy categories, making him a must-own in deeper formats. The 28-year-old has missed significant time this season due to injury, but should still be able to hit the 30-point mark.

Jackets' Dubinsky Chips In Assist In Win

News: Brandon Dubinsky contributed an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky has been relatively quiet since his two-goal outing back on Jan. 4, registering no goals and two assists over his last six outings. It's not atypical scoring production for a player who hasn't topped more than 54 points in a season, but the forward at least does well to supplement his value in other areas. He's already tallied 44 hits and 19 PIM over his 17 games.

Brandon Dubinsky

Jackets' Dubinsky Pots Two

News: Brandon Dubinsky scored his first two goals of the season in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky has been on fire in the past week, recording three multi-point games in his last four with seven points in that span. The 28-year-old was sidelined to begin the season so he's got just nine points in 11 contests thus far, but he appears to have shaken off any rust he may have had.

Blue Jackets' Dubinsky (Back) Will Play Sunday

News: Brandon Dubinsky suffered a lower-back injury during Saturday's game against the Coyotes but will be in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Avalanche, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky's lower back injury that forced his earlier departure from Saturday's game is not believed to be serious. As a result, he should be deployed as usual against the Avalanche on Sunday.

Jackets' Dubinsky Misses End Of Saturday's Game

News: Brandon Dubinsky (undisclosed) wasn't on the ice for the final half of Saturday's third period, but Blue Jackets' coach Todd Richards said he expected Dubinsky to be in the lineup Sunday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: This doesn't appear to be a big deal, but given the Jackets' awful luck with injuries this season, Brandon Dubinsky's owners will likely be holding their breath until he actually hits the ice against the Avalanche on Sunday. He's been arguably the team's top distributor recently, contributing a total of five assists while going plus-5 over his last three games.

Blue Jackets' Dubinsky Scores Two Helpers In Win

News: Brandon Dubinsky scored two assists in a 3-1 win over Minnesota on Wednesday.
Analysis: That's the second consecutive two-assist game from Brandon Dubinsky, who now has six assists in nine games on the season. The Blue Jackets have sorely missed his presence in the lineup and he will score his first goal of the season soon enough. Fantasy owners who have been patient while Dubinsky recovers from injury should be happy with the early returns and should expect his production to increase as he gets back into game shape. He's a valuable fantasy asset for his ability to provide stats across the board.

Blue Jackets' Dubinsky Assists Twice

News: Brandon Dubinsky captured two assists and finished with a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Bruins. In addition, the center won 14 of his 27 faceoffs.
Analysis: It was the first multi-point game of the season for Brandon Dubinsky, who didn't make his debut until earlier this month following October abdominal surgery. Dubinsky's steady two-way skill set locks him as the Jackets' No. 2 center, but with 54 points representing his best scoring output for a full season, he's more of an asset in specialty formats that count PIM, hits and faceoff wins.

Jackets' Dubinsky Notches Assist In Return

News: Finally playing his first game of the year Tuesday, Brandon Dubinsky skated 19:09 and assisted on Boone Jenner's power-play goal in a 3-2 overtime victory against the Flyers.
Analysis: Nice to see Dubi jump right back into big minutes after missing the Jackets' first 26 games due to abdominal surgery. They'll be counting on him to keep delivering solid production and his usual gritty play as the second-line center.

Jackets' Dubinsky Returning Tuesday

News: Brandon Dubinsky (abdomen) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Flyers, Jeff Rimer of Fox Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky was a full participant in Monday's practice, so barring a setback, he'll suit up for Tuesday's contest. The center hasn't played all season, but finished last year with 16 goals and 34 assists in 76 games.

Jackets' Dubinsky (Abdomen) Out Saturday

News: Brandon Dubinsky (abdomen) will not play Saturday against the Lightning, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky appears to be nearing a return, having traveled with the team on its current road trip, but evidently the Jackets just don't feel comfortable slotting him back into the lineup just yet. He'll cast an eye toward making his season debut Tuesday against Philadelphia.

Jackets' Dubinsky To Travel, But Unlikely To Play

News: Brandon Dubinsky (abdomen) will travel with the Blue Jackets for their two-game Florida swing, but is unlikely to play Thursday against the Panthers, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky was present at Wednesday's practice, but still wasn't participating in line work, indicating he won't draw back into the lineup Thursday. However, with a couple more positive skating sessions, he could be ready to play Saturday in Tampa Bay.

Jackets' Dubinsky Won't Play Monday

News: Brandon Dubinsky (abdomen) won't be in the lineup Monday against the Panthers, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky is still recovering from abdominal surgery, and was eyeing Monday's game as a possible return date over the weekend. Instead, Adam Cracknell will take Dubinsky's place in the lineup once again.

Jackets' Dubinsky Could Return Monday

News: Blue Jackets' coach Todd Richards wouldn't rule out the possibility that Brandon Dubinsky (abdominal surgery) could make his season debut on Monday, the Columbus Dispatch reports. "He is getting close," Richards said. "I haven't spoken with Brandon yet today [Sunday], but he skated in Nashville yesterday ... had a good, hard skate and said he felt really good afterward."
Analysis: Getting Brandon Dubinsky back would be a huge boost for the reeling Jackets, but his fantasy owners will want to wait to get confirmation that he'll be available before plugging him into their active roster.

Jackets' Dubinsky Skating Better

News: Although he's been ruled out for this weekend's games, Brandon Dubinsky (abdominal surgery) looked strong on his skates during an optional team workout on Wednesday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: A return for Monday's game against the Panthers might also be optimistic, but it looks like Brandon Dubinsky will be able to get back in the lineup later next week. The reeling Jackets could certainly use him.

Jackets' Dubinsky Not Expected Back Friday

News: Brandon Dubinsky (abdomen) is not expected to be ready to play in either of the Blue Jackets' games over the weekend, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky first returned to the ice Monday following a recent setback in his recovery from abdominal surgery, so he'll still need several more practices to get back up to full speed. The Blue Jackets have dealt with a number of lengthy absences due to injury this season, but few have been more significant than Dubinsky's. While not an elite scorer, Dubinsky is sound in just about every phase of the game and will represent a welcome addition to Columbus' top-six once he's healthy.

Jackets' Dubinsky Skates Monday

News: Brandon Dubinsky (abdomen) skated at the Jackets' practice facility Monday, Rob Mixer of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: This appears to be Dubi's first time taking the ice since suffering a setback in the middle of the month. It seems like he's starting to close in on a return again.

Jackets' Dubinsky Suffers Setback

News: Brandon Dubinsky (abdomen) appears to have suffered a setback in the rehab process, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky was targeting Tuesday's game against the Red Wings for a return, but is reportedly taking a break from skating, and is considered week-to-week. The update we received from head coach Todd Richards couldn't have been more vague, but it seems safe to rule him out for Tuesday at this point.

Jackets' Dubinsky Still Hoping To Return Tuesday

News: Brandon Dubinsky (abdomen) continues to target a return to the lineup Tuesday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky, who was ruled out for six weeks after undergoing abdominal surgery Oct. 8, skated with the Blue Jackets' strength and conditioning coach Saturday morning before taking part in the team's optional practice. It appears he's making progress with each passing day, and coach Todd Richards said the club is viewing him as a day-to-day.
