  • Blue Jackets' Emil Bemstrom: Pair of assists in loss

    Bemstrom registered two assists in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Capitals.

    Bemstrom had a part in both of Columbus' goals Thursday, forcing a turnover that set up Johnny Gaudreau's tally in the first period before adding a second helper on Gavin Bayreuther's goal in the second. Bemstrom has been effective since he was recalled by the Blue Jackets on Dec. 29, logging two goals and two assists in four games. With Columbus struggling, the 23-year-old winger could see an extended look on the top line alongside Gaudreau and Kent Johnson.

    Bemstrom has logged 117 games for the club over the last three seasons in which he has garnered a combined 19 goals and 17 helpers while averaging 11:45 of ice time. The winger ended the previous campaign mired in an eight-game pointless streak during which he generated just 10 shots. Even if he does make the 23-man roster for Opening Night versus the Hurricanes, he is far from a lock for the lineup every game and could spend some time in the press box.

    Bemstrom has recorded a point in four games this season, with box-score multipliers in half of those. There's a lot to like about Columbus' fourth-round (No. 117) overall pick from 2017, but for now he's paying his dues on the fourth line.

  • Blue Jackets' Emil Bemstrom: Recalled from AHL

    Bemstrom was recalled from AHL Cleveland on Thursday, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

  • Blue Jackets' Emil Bemstrom: Assigned to AHL affiliate

    Bemstrom has sat as a healthy scratch for two straight contests since exiting the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Saturday, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 22-year-old forward has, however, picked up four points through 13 NHL appearances this season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him get another look with the big club in the near future.

    Since returning from an oblique injury Dec. 30 against Nashville, Bemstrom has recorded two goals on 22 shots, two assists and seven hits while averaging 10:00 of ice time. The 22-year-old natural center will likely miss the Jackets' next three games and will see Trey Fix-Wolansky added to the lineup in his stead.
