Second (okay, sample size, hush) in the NHL in goals? You don’t say. Averaging a point a game? (Yeah, okay, that hattrick had something to do with it, but still.)

Yeah, okay, a 25% shooting % is unsustainable, but this is looking good for my favorite player. He may crack that 20 goal mark this year, something that he hasn’t done since pre-back injury (although he did come close last year. 19!)

And I’m just going to drop this here for comparison. Keep in mind that all other years are a full season. So sample size sample size sample size. Comparatively, he’s still not quite where he was pre-injury, but he’s getting there. It’ll be interesting to see where he ends up at the end of the season.
