Blake Comeau LW PIT 3 Months

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed Blake Comeau to a one-year, $700,000 contract.

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."

With no one among the Columbus Blue Jackets collecting a point, Blake Comeau's Sunday stood out in a 2-0 loss to the New York Islanders.

Comeau collected five PIM, three SOG and five hits in today's defeat. The Blue Jackets have a nice collection of deeper stats-fillers, but that was today's notable performance. Normally Comeau isn't really worth adding, though.

Blake Comeau has been handed a two-game suspension by the NHL for boarding Detroit defenseman Brendan Smith on Tuesday.

Comeau was given a double minor as a result of the incident. His two-game suspension might have been longer under other circumstances, but it helped that he had no prior suspension history and Smith wasn't injured as a result of the play. Comeau can return on March 18.

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.

Blake Comeau is doubtful for Monday's game with a knee injury.

Comeau missed nine games with the knee injury, played on Tuesday and re-injured his knee. Consider him day-to-day but it's more likely than not that he will not return until after the Olympic break. He has no fantasy value.
