Little racked up two goals and an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Wild. Little was a bright spot in the loss for the Jets, as he recorded another multi-point game. He now has eight goals and eight assists through 16 games on the season.
Little notched a pair of assists -- one of them on the power play -- in Thursday's win over the Blackhawks. Since a season-opening three-game scoreless skid, Little's been a highly regular scoresheet presence, having racked up nine points in the last seven games now. With the Edmonton native looking as sharp as ever, there's no reason not to think he'll find his way into the points column on a regular basis throughout the year.
Little registered a goal and an assist in Sunday's win over the Wild. It's already the third multi-point contest for Little this year, as he and his linemates Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler have all looked strong in the early goings. The 27-year-old is just off the point-per-game pace thus far, and appears poised to approach his career-high mark of 64 points set two years ago.
Little broke a 1-1 tie Tuesday against the Rangers with a shorthanded goal, then added a power-play goal for insurance in what turned out to be a 4-1 victory. Little's shortie thus holds up as the game-winner, and it's nice to see the veteran center find his way onto the scoresheet after he recorded zero points in the season's first three games. He's overwhelmingly likely to remain a staple of the Jets' top six, but it wouldn't be surprising to see rising star Mark Scheifele overtake him for first-line duties as the season goes on.
