Breaking the 50 point mark in the NHL at this day in age is a big accomplishment. Who are the 5 most likely Columbus Blue Jackets to accomplish it this year?

Last year the Columbus Blue Jackets only had two players break the 50 point mark on the season. This year though will be an entirely different story.

In 2017-2018 the Jackets power play was historically bad. Along with some critical injuries to Zach Werenski and Cam Atkinson, a large chunk of the Jackets’ offensive firepower was sidlined or not at 100%.

This year though should be a different story.

The Jackets power play will regress to at least an average conversion rate this year. That will lead to close to 15 more goals and about 25 more assist.

The Jackets also should just be a better team than they did last season, both offensively and defensively. The Jackets had three players within ten points of 50 and this year I believe at least five will reach that milestone in the 2018-2019 season.

Who are these scoring threats? Let’s take a look.
