Matt Calvert Blue Jackets 2017-18 Season Wrapup Interview


Matt Calvert (

Fan-favorite, Matt Calvert is the scrappy and grit of the Blue Jackets. Just 5’11, 186, he doesn’t mind being physical and calling out opponents to fight. And he has the knack to score key goals for the team over the years.

Calvert, a left winger, has been one of the longest tenured Blue Jackets at 8 years.

This past season, he scored 9 goals with 15 assists for 24 points while averaging 13:22 in icetime. He tied career-highs in assists and points this past season and led the team in short-handed goals. He became the 10th player to record 400 games played for the Blue Jackets on March 2 at Anaheim.

He too is another player about to become a free agent. He wants to stay with the team as well.
