Insight: Klesla, the first-ever Columbus draft pick and the last player remaining from the team's first season, should provide the Coyotes with some experienced blueline depth, although he won't add many points. Upshall will provide the Jackets with some secondary scoring and grit as they attempt a playoff push.

Insight: He logged 18:34 of ice time, while earning one assist and a plus-one rating in a 5-4 loss to Pittsburgh. He's a top-four defender for the Blue Jackets, but looks to add more value to the team than fantasy owners. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Klesla healthy and raring to go for the season.
Insight: After recovering from a torn groin and abdominal muscles, Rostislav Klesla says he's 100%. While he may have to sit out some practices early on, the Blue Jackets will be glad to have their valuable defenseman back for the 2010 campaign. (RapidDraft.com)
