Artem Anisimov impressed Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards on Saturday night.
The Russian center had an impressive backhand goal. "One thing I learned about him is, he has a pretty good backhand," Richards said. "I just learned that tonight. I was really impressed with his game. He's big. He's strong. He did a lot of good things throughout the game." Anisimov has the skills to be a productive player but goes unnoticed too often.
