Columbus coach John Tortorella has liked the play of rookie defenseman Vladislav Gavrikov.

Gavrikov has been solid on the Columbus blueline this season and has five goals and 18 points in 69 games this season after being a healthy scratch in the Blue Jackets opening game. "There’s no frills," Tortorella said. "At times he’s ugly, but he finds a way to be effective all the time. That’s what I appreciate about it. He’s very dependable, just always there. I wanted to see his puck skills, and if you keep on watching they’re underrated. (Defensively) he’s like an octopus. When he gets you, it’s tough to get away from him. He’s all arms. He’s strong. He’s ugly as sin at times, but he doesn’t get beat. He’s been a huge piece of the puzzle for us this year." Gavrikov is eligible to become a restricted free agent at the end of the season but his agent and the Blue Jackets have begun to work on a long-term deal. While he has little in the way of fantasy value, Gavrikov is a valuable member of the Blue Jackets defense corps. Mar 22 10:26 am (EST)
