Blake Comeau LW PIT 5 Days

Comeau saw ice time with Evgeni Malkin and Brandon Sutter after Pascal Dupuis left Thursday's game due to injury.

Although there are no guarantees Comeau sticks on the second line, he could see a fantasy boost for as long as he skates with Malkin. The winger, who totaled four hits Thursday, has a little bit of offensive talent and could prove to be a sneaky short-term pickup. The team has yet to announce how much time Dupuis might miss, but if it's for more than a game or two then the team could decide to recall Jayson Megna, make a trade or even stick with Comeau.

Comeau notched the game-winning goal in Thursday's season-opening win over the Ducks.

Playing on the third line for the Penguins in his team debut, Comeau was able to cash in on one of his three shots on goal on the evening to give Pens the victory in a high-scoring affair. Comeau is expected to provide most of his contributions on the defensive end as a checker, but any offense he can provide along the way would obviously be welcomed by the Penguins.

There haven't been any contract talks between the Blue Jackets and Blake Comeau.

He can become an unrestricted free agent in July and it looks like he will be permitted to test the open market. Comeau appears to caught in a numbers game, where there simply aren't enough roster spots to go around. Columbus wants to give some of their prospects a shot at making the team and there are some players who are expected to be signed instead of him. Comeau posted 16 points and 197 hits in 61 games last season.

Columbus outhit Pittsburgh 65-32 in Game 3 on Monday.

Blake Comeau led the attack for the Blue Jackets with eight hits in the contest. It didn't end up turning the tide in this match as Pittsburgh still won 4-3, but Penguins coach Dan Bylsma acknowledged the disparity. "I don't want to say it's not a concern," Bylsma said. "They're a physical group and they come after you. But tonight I feel like we had the puck an awful lot in the offensive zone. If that's them coming after us and hitting us there, so be it."

Blake Comeau and Corey Tropp have been healthy scratches for the Columbus Blue Jackets since the Olympic break ended but or both might be in uniform against Nashville tonight.

"We've got to get some energy in there," Columbus coach Todd Richards said. "With Tropp and Comeau, how they've played this season, you know they're going to skate and play hard. And we have some guys who aren't skating as hard as we need them to play." The Blue Jackets have 14 healthy forwards on the roster, and right wing Jared Boll is on the trip, saying he's close to being able to return after ankle surgery.
