The Next Wave NHL
COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS
SUMMARY
The Jackets have a pair of potential scoring forwards, and then some good balance throughout the system. They would do well to add some high end d prospects, but we know they're already in the NHL.

UP
Olivier Bjorkstrand continues to produce when given the opportunity, his release and shot are that of a high end goal scorer, and the stats keep coming, when healthy.

DOWN
Pierre-Luc Dubois had a dip in production last season, and his ratings reduced because of it. Considered a low risk prospect, the ceiling may be coming down from what was originally hoped.

WHO TO WATCH
Calvin Thurkauf, playing his rookie pro season in the AHL, will his nose for the net translate and continue to develop? If so, the Jackets could have another legit top 6 scoring winger in their midst. Will be interesting to see how his game progresses as the year goes on.
