#CBJ D Nikita Nikitin (upper body) said he felt good after second straight day skating with team. Hopes to play on Thursday vs. Flames.
Nikitin has missed the Blue Jackets last 3 games but sounds like he will be back tomorrow vs. the Flames. He has 2 assists in 7 games this season and is a -3. He can put up points as he showed us last year 7 G and 25 A in only 54 games. However the +/- will likely be a problem.
