2021-22 Player Review: Sean Kuraly had a homecoming to remember

As the Columbus Blue Jackets proceeded with an overhaul of the roster in 2021, no splashy free agent signings were expected. Instead, they went for a depth player with a good story. Sean Kuraly had been a solid but not spectacular fourth line center for the Boston Bruins. Over parts of five seasons, he put up 24/44/68 in 270 games. That’s a 7.3/13.4/20.7 pace over 82 games, at 13:09 minutes played per game. His style of play thrived in the playoffs, at least, with 9/10/19 over 57 games. He also scored four game winners, including two in a 4/6/10 campaign when the Bruins reached the Cup Final in 2019.

Blue Jackets' Sean Kuraly: Out with foot injury

Kuraly will be sidelined for the final three games of the year due to a foot injury, the club announced Tuesday. Kuraly put together a career year in his first season with the Jackets as he set new personal bests in goals (14) and points (30). The center's production is all that more impressive considering it came almost exclusively at even strength after Kuraly managed just one power-play point. Without Kuraly in the lineup, Cole Sillinger figures to step into the second-line center role.

Blue Jackets' Sean Kuraly: Sparks comeback effort

Kuraly scored a goal on three shots and added four hits in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Maple Leafs. Kuraly got the Blue Jackets on the board at 1:45 of the second period after they fell behind 3-0 through 20 minutes. The 29-year-old is on a modest three-game point streak with a goal and three helpers in that span. Kuraly's still more of a bottom-six grinder than a true scoring threat, but head coach Brad Larsen has given him more significant ice time since the All-Star break. Kuraly has nine tallies, 13 assists, 84 shots on net, 172 hits, 39 PIM and a plus-6 rating in 57 contests.
