You can't stop Zach Werenski. You can only hope to contain him.

On Friday night against the Detroit Red Wings, Zach Werenski scored his 17th goal of his current campaign, snapping his own franchise record for most goals scored in a single season by a Columbus Blue Jacket defenseman.

Werenski shared the 16-goal record honor with defensive partner Seth Jones, but 22-year-old out of Michigan is leaving that achievement in the dust.

This is just Werenski's 48th game of the season, friends. He's on pace to potentially hit the 30-goal mark. Just absolutely wild.
