EDITOR'S NOTE: You've arrived at the CBJ Power Rankings, our weekly breakdown of the top-five players, statistics, trends and many other Blue Jackets-related categories. If you're looking for the traditional power rankings, you've come to the wrong place. We'll go in-depth and outside the box, and hopefully give you something to think about.

This week, we're looking at the five guys who drive the Blue Jackets' offense--the team's assist leaders 58 games into the regular season. Whether it's a defenseman setting up an initial pass, a shot from the point on the power play or grinding in front of the net, these are the players who ultimately help get goals on the board.

Let's take a look at the top five Blue Jackets assist leaders.




RYAN JOHANSEN
2013-14 Totals: 24G-22A-46P, 58 GP



It has been the very definition of a breakout season for the 21-year-old Johansen, who has turned heads not only in Columbus but around the NHL with a tremendous offensive campaign. Though he’s made big strides in the goal-scoring department (leading the Blue Jackets with 24), his playmaking ability has also taken a step forward. His 22 assists are third-best on the club and he’s found a home alongside Nathan Horton of late.
