The Cannon Top 25 under 25 #11: William Karlsson

Turn back the clock with me to March 2nd, 2015. James Wisniewski has, very much against his will, just been traded to the Anaheim Ducks. In return, Columbus gets Rene Bourque, a second round pick, and a recently signed Swedish kid named William Karlsson. Drafted in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft, Karlsson had been solid in the SHL, putting up reasonably good numbers for HV71, and...

The Cannon Top 25 Under 25 - #12 Anton Forsberg

The Swedish netminder got his groove back in the Calder Cup playoffs Let’s start with the good: Anton Forsberg ended his 2015-16 season in the best possible way. The 7th round pick from 2011 took over from Joonas Korpisalo in the middle of the series against Grand Rapids. Starting with the clinching game of that series, Forsberg went 9-0 in 9 starts, with a playoff-best 1.34 GAA...

Which Columbus Blue Jackets prospects should make the jump to the NHL this season?

As the 2016 training camp approaches for the Columbus Blue Jackets, a lot of the focus will be on the prospects that carried the Lake Erie (now Cleveland) Monsters to the Calder Cup. The disappointing 2015-16 season for the Blue Jackets created a few open spots on the roster which will need be filled by these prospects. The only question is who are the ones that deserve the chance...

The Cannon Top 25 Under 25 - #16 Daniel Zaar

Looking back on the 2012 NHL draft class, it’s doubtful that anyone aside from the deepest of draft wonks recognized the name “Daniel Zaar” when the Blue Jackets selected him in the sixth round as the 212st overall pick. If you asked him, I suspect he’d be fine with that. The 22 year old Swede has built his game around getting to places he’s not expected, and making the...

What can the Columbus Blue Jackets do to improve their blue line?

The Columbus Blue Jackets defensemen will open the 2016-17 season knowing that the team’s success will largely depend on them. The defensemen have undoubtedly been the Blue Jackets weakness of late, which has led to a few key moves to revamp the blue line. One of which was acquiring Seth Jones from the Nashville Predators in a blockbuster trade. Jones will be 22-years old at the...

Who is the goalie of the future for the Columbus Blue Jackets?

After winning the Vezina Trophy in 2013, Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky was thought to be the goalie of the future for the organization. However, the 2015-16 season made some people wonder who the future goalie really is in Columbus. When Bobrovsky is on his game, he’s proven to be a great player. He has a lot of hockey left in him as a highly skilled 27-year...

Columbus draft pick survived meteor strike as kid, prompeted hockey career

On NHL Draft weekend, there are always many great stories that emerge as to how the prospects found themselves where they stand with the sweater of one of the 30 NHL teams on and a new hat on their head. Columbus Blue Jackets third round draft pick Vitaly Abramov might seem like an average Russian sniper taken in the later rounds due to the general reluctance in the NHL to take...

Hartnell agreed to waive no-move clause for several teams

Scott Hartnell’s name popped up quite a bit prior to the trade deadline, but nothing ever panned out and he closed out the season with the Columbus Blue Jackets. That may change this summer as Hartnell has reportedly agreed to waive his no-move clause for a “decent-sized list” of teams. Via Sportsnet.ca: According to sources, Hartnell, who has a no-move clause, has agreed...

Is it time for the Blue Jackets to trade Sergei Bobrovsky?

What should the Columbus Blue Jackets do with Bob? The Blue Jackets long had a goalie carousel of underachievers that ended with Steve Mason imploding. Acquiring Sergei Bobrovsky from the Philadelphia Flyers for three draft picks instantly brought the team much-needed stability between the pipes. Bobrovsky joined the league’s elite netminders when he burst onto the scene in...
