Boone Jenner showing improvement in minors | 05/12/2013 9:07 AM
NewsBoone Jenner has been making a good impression with Springfield of the AHL.
Impact"To me, he's an improved player from what I saw at the end of last season (five games)," coach Brad Larsen said. "And I liked what I saw last year. He's just grown a lot. He's a confidence player, a big strong player. His speed has improved, and that's the No. 1 thing I've recognized. He's not lightning-fast. He'll never be that guy. But he's such a hard worker, and he's got enough speed to be where he needs to be." Jenner has two goals and an assist in six playoff games. He was a stud with the Oshawa Generals of the OHL this season as he had 45 goals and 82 points in 57 games.

NewsBoone Jenner scored the game winner Sunday as Springfield defeated Connecticut 4-3.
ImpactIt was Jenner's first AHL point and it occurred in his second game. The Blue Jackets are quite high on the all-round center and he could appear in an NHL game before the end of the season. He had 45 goals and 82 points in 57 OHL games and played for Team Canada at the World Juniors although he picked up a three game suspension for a charge on Jesper Petterssen in a tune-up game before the start of the Worlds.
Boone Jenner needs to prove himself in AHL | 04/12/2013 9:50 AM
NewsThe Columbus Blue Jackets want Boone Jenner to prove himself in the AHL before he gets to make his NHL debut.
Impact"I think with where our team is right now, competing for the playoffs and in general, everybody has to earn their spot on the team," Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen said. "He's a great young prospect, and we have a team in Springfield that we think is going to go far in the playoffs, so I think that's the right place for him to start right now." All the same, it wouldn't be surprising to see him play in a couple games for the Blue Jackets this season.

Boone Jenner starts training camp on 4th line | 01/14/2013 8:24 AM
NewsBoone Jenner started training camp centering the fourth line.
ImpactJenner is a two-way center who was leading the OHL in goals before he left the Oshawa Generals in December to play for Canada at the World Juniors. He started ahead of former first round pick Ryan Johansen who saw duty on the fifth line but Johansen projects to be a top two center and there is no reason at this time to have him in a checking role. Jenner will end up being a good second or third center as he knows how to play defensively and can play well offensively.
