Insight: Nikitin had 32 points with 93 SOG in 54 games after joining Columbus last season, but has failed to continue to produce at that rate with just four points (2 G, 2A) in 23 games this season. He should not be in any fantasy lineups.

Description: In his first game after being activated from injured reserve, Blue Jackets defenseman Nikita Nikitin failed to tally a point but did have seven SOG.
Insight: Nikitin had 32 points with 93 SOG in 54 games after joining Columbus last season. He only has two points (zero goals) so far and he isn't going to post a good plus/minus but he does take a decent amount of shot on goal (20 this season). He's a good third or fourth defenseman on fantasy rosters.
