Jackman collected his first point of the season Saturday against the Avalanche, assisting on one of Vladimir Tarasenko's two goals on the evening.

Jackman is regarded as a defensively-responsible blueliner, but his involvement on offense has been virtually nonexistent throughout his career. He'll pick up some blocked shots and hits with more regularity, but he won't post totals overwhelming enough to win those categories for fantasy owners.

Barret Jackman's playing time has gone down this season.

Jackman is averaging just 17:35 minutes per contest, which would be a career-low for him if this trend continues. The Blues have a strong defense and Jay Bouwmeester and Alex Pietrangelo both eat up a lot of minutes. With that in mind, it would probably take an injury for Jackman's role to increase significantly.
