Statistics are a major part of sports and help us determine how a team or player is progressing through a season. It may still be early in the NHL season, but I don’t believe it is too early to take a look at some important stats. The Columbus Blue Jackets currently sit with nine wins, twelve losses, 3 overtime losses and are situated in the bottom of the pack in the Metropolitan Division.
With at least 6 players currently injured, the Blue Jackets are in for a tough week. There are three games on the schedule: two at home (finally) and one away. Hopefully the players who are left uninjured find some consistency and capitalize on pivotal moments.
- The team has a total of 61 goals
- 8 – Ryan Johansen
- 6 – RJ Umberger, Artem Anisimov, Cam Atkinson
- 5 – Marian Gaborik, Brandon Dubinsky, Nick Foligno
- Many fans are disappointed in Anisimov’s play this season, but he is tied for the second most goals. What exactly is expected of him?
- 18 - James Wisniewski
- 16 – Ryan Johansen
- 15 – Brandon Dubinsky
- 13 – RJ Umberger
- Ryan Craig and Tim Erixon are the only players who have not registered a point with the Blue Jackets this season. They have during their time with the Springfield Falcons, but not the big club.
- 74 – Cam Atkinson
- 66 – Ryan Johansen
- 49 – Brandon Dubinsky, James Wisniewski
- 9 – Jared Boll
- 5 – Michael Chaput
- 50% – Jack Skille (2 shots with 1 goal)
- 20.8% – Nick Foligno (24 shots with 5 goals)
- 16.7% – Ryan Murray (18 shots with 3 goals)
- 4.1% – James Wisniewski (49 shots with 2 goals)
- 0% – Ryan Craig, Sean Collins, Dalton Prout, Tim Erixon, David Savard, Michael Chaput
- +5 - David Savard
- +3 – Nick Foligno, Matt Calvert
- -6 – Jared Boll, Cam Atkinson, Ryan Johansen
- -11 - Jack Johnson
- Jack Johnson has the most time on the ice of any player, and he always plays on the penalty kill, so it only makes sense that he is a -11.
