As we begin the Olympic Break, I wanted to put together posts about how the Columbus Blue Jackets have done up to this point.  The right wingers are up next.  Interesting fact: the only right winger who has played more than 32 games is Cam Atkinson.

Cam Atkinson got off to a slow start, but with 17 goals, he is very valuable on the ice.  Cam is known for his speed and agility, and he’s the smallest player on the team.

Cam Atkinson’s current stats
Goals: 17
Assists: 15
Plus/Minus: -2
PIM: 14
Shooting Percentage: 10.8%

Corey Tropp has only played 31 games for the Blue Jackets since being picked up off waivers, but he makes a great 4th line guy.  He’s gritty and he works well with Derek MacKenzie. He is also at a +11, the highest on the team.
