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.

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.

Jackets' Dubinsky (Abdomen) Eyeing Nov. 18 Return

News: Brandon Dubinsky (abdomen) may be eyeing a return to the lineup Nov. 18 against the Red Wings, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky was given a six-week timetable after undergoing surgery in early October. November 18 appears to be his target return date, and it will be eagerly awaited with four forwards, two defensemen, and their starting goaltender all on the disabled list for Columbus.

Blue Jackets' Dubinsky Skates Tuesday

News: Brandon Dubinsky (lower body) skated solo Tuesday, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky did not take part in Tuesday's morning skate, but the report indicated that he was moving well, so it appears he continues to make progress in his recovery. Dubinsky is likely looking at a mid-to-late-November return to game action.

Jackets' Dubinsky Resumes Skating

News: Brandon Dubinsky skated on Monday for the first time since undergoing abdominal surgery at the beginning of the month, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: He's still probably at least a couple of weeks away from getting into the lineup, but Brandon Dubinsky's recovery seems to be going well.

Jackets' Dubinsky (Abdomen) Out Six Weeks

News: Brandon Dubinsky underwent abdominal surgery Wednesday and will be out for approximately six weeks.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky's mysterious placement on injured reserve Tuesday finally has a concrete explanation behind it, as it appears the forward might have suffered the injury over the weekend. While the Blue Jackets are fortunate to have Ryan Johansen (contract dispute) back in the fold for Thursday's season opener, the absences of top-six forwards Dubinsky, Boone Jenner and Nathan Horton will force the team to rely on an armada of rookies to keep the offense humming in the early going.

Blue Jackets Place Dubinsky On Injured Reserve

News: The Blue Jackets placed Brandon Dubinsky (lower body) on injured reserve on Tuesday, and he is out indefinitely, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The news keeps getting worse for Brandon Dubinsky, who has gone from "nicked up" to "out indefinitely" in the span of a couple hours. The Blue Jackets have not provided any other details regarding Dubinsky's injury, so it's difficult to offer an accurate estimated return date at this point. Columbus will enter the regular season with all of Dubinsky, Boone Jenner and Nathan Horton on the injured reserve, depriving the team of three players who were expected to serve as top-six forwards.

Blue Jackets' Dubinsky Out For Opener

News: Brandon Dubinsky will not play in Thursday's season opener due to a lower body injury, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The nature of Brandon Dubinsky's setback is uncertain, but it prevented him from practicing Tuesday, and will keep him off the ice for Thursday's opener. Dubinsky is considered day-to-day, so he could be able to play in the Blue Jackets' second regular season game Saturday.

Blue Jackets' Dubinsky Sits Out Tuesday's Practice

News: Brandon Dubinsky did not take part in Tuesday's practice due to an injury, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Head coach Todd Richards said Brandon Dubinsky is simply "nicked up," so the setback does not appear serious at first glance. However, it's not clear what type of injury he is dealing with, or if it puts his availability for Thursday's season opener in question. Expect an update on Dubinsky's status as more details become available.

Jackets' Dubinsky Signs Six-Year Extension

News: Brandon Dubinsky (ankle) signed a six-year extension with the Blue Jackets on Friday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brandon Dubinsky had a career-best season in 2013-14 for the Jackets, scoring 16 goals and adding a career-high 34 helpers. The 28-year-old will earn approximately $5.85 million per season, and the deal will keep him under contract with the club through 2020-21. Although he had a minor ankle procedure this offseason, the center is expected to be ready for the beginning of the 2014-15 campaign.
