CBJ ships Pahlsson to Vancouver for pair of fourth-round picks



Several media reports from Nationwide Arena on Monday afternoon said that when the Blue Jackets told Sammy Pahlsson that he had been traded to a contending team, the Vancouver Canucks, he was very disappointed with the move. Several weeks ago when his name starting coming up in rumors about trades, he said he didn’t want to leave Columbus.

Pahlsson’s numbers this season are 61 games, 2 goals, 9 assists, 11 points and a minus-6 rating.

Pahlsson, a checking-line center, will be a member of the Canucks. Columbus will receive two fourth-round picks in the 2012 NHL entry draft.

Some fans and media probably look at fourth-round picks as nothing, but in looking at the Blue Jackets NHL and AHL rosters, they’ve had success in that round with Jared Boll, Maksim Mayorov and David Savard. So there is talent to be found in that round. The scouts have to find those players.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated left wing Kristian Huselius off injured reserve and assigned right wing Maksim Mayorov to the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League.

The 32-year-old Huselius played Sunday against the Chicago Blackhawks after missing the past 20 games due to an injury suffered at the United Center in Chicago on February 18. He has registered 12 goals and nine assists for 21 points in 35 games this season. Huselius has played in 657 games with Florida, Calgary and Columbus.

Mayorov, who is 22, who has made an impression on head coach Scott Arniel who told the media after Sunday’s game that the young player will be given a chance to win a job next season with the Jackets.

The right winger scored the first goal of his NHL career against Chicago on Friday and scored the game-deciding shootout goal against Florida on March 29. He has appeared in 12 career games in the NHL with the Blue Jackets.

The Andizhan, Russia native was Columbus’ fifth pick, 94th overall, in the 2007 Entry Draft.

Blackhawks escape Jackets in shootout, 4-3

Columbus Blue Jackets head coach Scott Arniel told the media during the post-game press conference , when asked about his team playing 18 games past regulation into overtime or a shootout, what does that say about his team, how close are they to the playoffs or how far they are away. His answer was “we’re getting closer, we can work on being able to win those games by working on the skills necessary to do so.”

After being down 2-0 in the first six minutes of game, the Jackets, playing without Rick Nash, Grant Clitsome, Steve Mason, rallied back to challenge the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks tooth-and-nail.

They lost 4-3 in the shootout after Viktor Stalberg scored the only goal in the third round.

Columbus had several stars in Maksim Mayorov, Derick Brassard and Sammy Pahlsson scored goals and defenseman Anton Stralman set a career-high with three assists. Mathieu Garon, starting in place of Mason, had 26 saves.

CBJ’s MacKenzie candidate for Bill Masterton Trophy

The Columbus Blue Jackets are three games away from wrapping up their tenth season overall and ninth without making the playoffs.

However, this season the team has found out that they have several players from their minor league Springfield club, who will be able to stick on the NHL level.

Matt Calvert, Grant Clitsome, Maksim Mayorov and Derek MacKenzie have all been pleasant surprises and can be counted on in future seasons.

The story of MacKenzie is very interesting indeed. He has waited for several years to get a solid chance to show he can play at the National Hockey League level.

The fourth-line center has spent nine, long seasons and 550 games in the American Hockey League and never thought he’d get a chance.

The 29-year-old has played in 60 games, with nine goals, 13 assists, a plus-16 rating and has won 52.7 percent of his faceoffs. He’s fourth on the club with 155 hits, which is amazing, considering he only averages 10:42 minutes per game. His plus-16 rating could be a franchise record among forwards if it can hold up the final three games.

These are the reasons why the Sudbury, Ontario, Canada native has been nominated for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy by the Columbus chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association. The trophy is given annually to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

The award is named after Bill Masterton, a Minnesota North Stars player who died on January 15, 1968 after sustaining an injury during a hockey game. During his career, Bill showed a high degree of those qualities; perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

The Masterton award was first awarded following the 1967-68 regular season to Claude Provost of the Montreal Canadiens. The 2009-2010 winner was Jose Theodore of the Washington Capitals. He had his best year in goal since the 2001-2002 season, following his son, Chase’s death in 2009. Chase died from complications stemming from pre-mature birth.


Blue Jackets end shootout, home loss streak with win over Florida

Coaches always tell players on the bench during games to watch tendencies in players and it’ll help out in clutch situations.

In the Blue Jackets game against the Florida Panthers, it would benefit rookie winger Maksim Mayorov in the shootout.
Earlier in the game, Mayorov saw teammate Scottie Upshaw beat Florida goaltender Scott Clemmensen high to the glove side in the first period and put it in his memory for future use.
In the second-round of the shootout, Mayorov became a surprise shooter. He fired a quick, deceptive wrist shot past Clemmensen for the only goal in the shootout and the Blue Jackets stopped a couple of streaks in its 3-2 win. Six consecutive shootout losses and six losses in a row at home were put to rest.
The Three Stars of the Game include: Maksim Mayorov, LW Columbus; Fedor Tyutin, Defenseman Columbus, played 28:27 and had a plus-2 rating; Steve Mason, Goalie Columbus, had 29 saves and did not give up any points in the shootout.
