Atkinson will play for Team USA in the upcoming IIHF World Hockey Championships, Tom Reed of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

EDGE Analysis

Atkinson pieced together a solid 2017-18 campaign when healthy, notching 46 points -- 24 goals and 22 assists -- along with 231 shots on goal and a career-best plus-19 rating over 65 contests. Still just 28 years old, Atkinson will travel to Denmark in the offseason before beginning the first year of a seven-year extension with the Blue Jackets during 2018-19.

Atkinson skated to a minus-4 rating and missed a game-high seven shots against the Capitals on Monday, as the Blue Jackets lost the series in six games.

EDGE Analysis

Atkinson couldn't buy a goal in the last three games of the conference quarterfinals. He was blanked 16 times over that span and the lack of self-support led to a cumulative minus-6 rating through Games 3 and 6. Still, there's plenty of fantasy value in a guy who's recorded at least 21 goals and 40 points in five straight seasons, so don't let his playoff woes get in the way of the big picture when drafting this fall.

Atkinson scored two goals, including one on the power play, in a 5-4 overtime victory against the Capitals in Sunday's Game 2.

EDGE Analysis

Despite playing 2:45 per game with the extra man during the regular season Atkinson only had three power-play goals and 10 power-play points. However, he already has two points with the extra man in the playoffs. He also has an 11-game point streak.

Atkinson (rest) will not play Saturday evening against the Predators, Rob Mixer of 1stOhioBattery.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Atkinson is healthy and merely getting some rest ahead of the playoff grind. The American winger posted 24 goals and 22 assists to supplement 10 power-play points over 65 games this season, but a foot injury over the winter prevented him from building upon his career-high 62-point mark established in 2016-17.

Atkinson scored two power-play goals while adding six shots, one hit and a minus-1 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

He extended his point streak to eight games, and Atkinson has been a huge part of the Jackets' late-season surge, scoring 11 goals and 20 points in 17 games since the beginning of March. With the team still gunning for home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs, expect Atkinson to continue seeing big minutes and plenty of scoring opportunities over the final two games of the season.

Atkinson collected a pair of assists during Thursday's 5-1 win over Calgary.

EDGE Analysis

Thursday's two assists give the American winger a six-game point streak consisting of four tallies and four helpers. Atkinson has found an offensive groove skating with Pierre-Luc Dubois and Atremi Panarin, as the trio has connected for an impressive 5.27 goals per 60 minutes this season. Additionally, Atkinson has now recorded 20 goals and 40 points in five consecutive seasons.

Atkinson scored his 19th goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

He's collected a point in four straight games, and Atkinson now has nine goals and 17 points in his last 15 games. It's overall been a disappointing season for the 28-year-old, but his big finish has helped push the Jackets into a playoff spot, and skating with Artemi Panarin on the top line should allow Atkinson to stay hot over the team's final six games.

Atkinson scored three goals and registered six shots during Thursday's 5-3 win over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old winger has now collected 10 tallies and 10 helpers through 23 games since returning from a foot injury in late January. After a disappointing start to the campaign, Atkinson's recent form is more in line with the breakout numbers he posted last season. It's also worth noting that he's locked in atop the Columbus depth chart with Pierre- Luc Dubois and Artemi Panarin, and they've now connected for an impressive 5.23 goals per 60 minutes this season.

Atkinson scored a short-handed, empty-net goal while adding two power-play assists in Monday's 5-1 win over the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

He capped off his evening with five shots and a plus-1 rating. It was Atkinson's first multi-point effort since Dec. 20, but he's now scored four goals and eight points in his last nine games and seems to be coming alive just in time for a playoff push. The Jackets added some forward depth at the trade deadline, but Atkinson's spot on a top-six line seems secure.
