Yegor Chinakhov News
Columbus Blue Jackets winger Yegor Chinakhov (upper body) will return from a one-game absence on Saturday versus San Jose. Chinakhov will be back in the lineup after making a quick recovery from an upper-body injury. He was injured last Saturday against Tampa Bay. Chinakhov is the team's third-leading goal-scorer with 14 tallies and has recorded 24 points in total across 40 appearances in 2023-24. The Russian forward finds himself in a perfect spot to do some damage on Saturday, as this is a meeting between the two leakiest defenses in the league.
Columbus Blue Jackets forward Yegor Chinakhov (upper body) will not be in the lineup when his team takes on the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night. The young forward suffered an upper-body injury in Saturday's loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning and did not return. It's been a nice season for the 23-year-old on a poor Blue Jackets club, as Chinakhov has recorded 14 goals and 24 points across 40 games, easily setting new career highs across the board. A 2020 first-round pick, the Russian has notched 25 goals and 51 points across 132 career NHL contests, adding 224 shots on goal in that time. Emil Bemstrom will re-enter the lineup in Chinakhov's place Tuesday in Ottawa.
Columbus Blue Jackets right wing Yegor Chinakhov was the team's lone scorer in Sunday's 4-2 defeat against Seattle. He hit two goals in the third period, reaching 14 markers for the campaign. Only Kirill Marchenko (15) has scored more times for Columbus in 2023-24. Four of Chinakhov's goals have come over the last six games, as the Russian winger has enjoyed one of his best spells of the season. He's had seven points in total during the stretch. There's not much fantasy value in the Blue Jackets squad these days, but in current form, Chinakhov does deserve attention from managers.
Columbus Blue Jackets winger Yegor Chinakhov in doubt for Thursday's clash with the Flyers due to an illness. He's officially regarded as a game-time decision after missing Wednesday's practice session with the illness. Chinakhov opened 2024 with a scoreless effort against Boston, but he had a very strong finish to December with a run of seven goals and five assists over 10 games. Across 28 games for the season, the Russian forward has tallied 10 goals and 17 points. Columbus will need to tweak its second line and first power-play unit if Chinakhov isn't declared healthy to play.
