Hedman picked up two power-play assists in Thursday's 6-3 victory over the Bruins. He joined with Jonathan Drouin to help out on the first two goals of Nikita Kucherov's hat trick. Hedman is having the best season of his career -- he's now just building on his new career marks in both goals (15) and assists (47), and the Bolts still have nine games left on the schedule for him to keep adding more to the pile.
Hedman scored with 54 seconds left in overtime to deliver a 2-1 victory over Ottawa on Tuesday. He now has a new career high with 14 goals on the season, and Hedman's already surpassed his old career high in points; he's now just one shy of hitting 60 for the first time. The Swedish blueliner has been an incredible pleasure to own in fantasy, and there's no reason to think that'll change down the stretch.
Hedman provided a goal (which held up as the game-winner) and a power-play assist against the Wild on Thursday. If you like blueliners who go on 11-game, 15-point hot streaks, Hedman's just the man for you, because that's exactly what he's in the midst of right now. Very few defensemen across the league even remotely approach a point per game, so Hedman's 57 in 63 have him in elite company. Brent Burns has 70 and Erik Karlsson has 61; after that, the closest blueliner to Hedman is 12 points behind him.
Hedman scored twice in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Hurricanes. The first goal came on the power play; the second was the game-winner. Hedman is on a three-game, five-point streak (two goals, three assists) and is just two points from second on the scoring list for NHL defenders. His 12 goals put him behind only Brent Burns and Shea Weber and his 24 power-play points are the best among defenders. If not for Burns' ridiculous season, Hedman would be right in the thick of the Norris Trophy talk.
Hedman delivered two power-play assists in a 5-1 win over the Senators on Monday night. Hedman has nine points, including six assists, in his last six games; five of those points (one goal, four assists) have come with the man advantage. Hedman has 10 goals, 41 helpers and 49 points, and is quickly closing in on his career highs in goals (13), assists (42) and points (55). Apply liberally and enjoy.
