CAM ATKINSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

An American Enigma? Season Review: Cam Atkinson

Late into the Blue Jackets’ season there seemed to be a divide amongst fans, management and the coaching staff. It all surrounded one player: Cam Atkinson. I titled the article claiming he was an enigma, a title normally given to Russians and various other european players. Like those other “enigmas”  you need to find what that player is good at and use him in optimal situations...

Cam Atkinson says Blue Jackets can learn from disappointing Game 3 loss

For the Columbus Blue Jackets, the team's youth and relative lack of playoff experience has been well documented. A case in point: Monday night's game at Nationwide Arena was the 55th playoff Game 3 for the Pittsburgh Penguins. For the Blue Jackets, it was their third. As a team, though, Columbus has certainly not looked overwhelmed by the playoff spotlight. Every one of...

Cam Atkinson elevates his play after sitting out three games in March

Message received, lesson learned. Columbus Blue Jackets winger Cam Atkinson hadn't missed a game all year. And it wasn't as if he hadn't been producing. After all, the former Boston College star had scored 18 goals through early March. But something was apparently missing from his game, at least in the eyes of head coach Todd Richards.

Blue Jackets winger Atkinson embraces time to rejuvenate, heal

At the Columbus Blue Jackets late-morning practice Tuesday, it was everyone on board, except for one injured guy (Fedor Tyutin), who was not able to skate at all, and a rehabbing guy (Jared Boll), who hit the ice a little later than all his teammates.

Atkinson staying early and late to stay on the ice

Overtime in hockey isnt always measured in five-minute increments, with teams skating four per side. For players trying to recover from injuries, or trying to play through them, their day starts well before morning skates and goes on well after the zamboni has made its final sweep.
