Toffoli potted his 30th goal of the season in Monday's loss to the Canucks. He got the Kings on the board early in this one, and also skated 19:40 worth of ice time -- his highest total in over two months -- but it ultimately wasn't enough. The 23-year-old has already set career-highs in both goals and points, and is playing some of his best hockey down the stretch run of the season with seven points (three goals, four assists) in the last five games.
Toffoli shredded the Oilers on Saturday night, tallying two goals and two assists in a 6-4 win. Toffoli wasted no time getting on the board as his first score, a quick snap on a rebound, came just 16 seconds into game action. In the second period, he blew past several Oilers and threaded the puck top shelf behind goalie Laurent Brossoit. Toffoli has improved his scoring totals in each successive year that he's been in the league, and only needs one more goal to reach 30 on the season. Toffoli is the type of player who can put a fantasy team over the top.
Toffoli scored the lone goal for the Kings and added four PIM in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Minnesota. Toffoli has now lit the lamp in three of the last six, firing on net 13 times in that span. The 23-year-old is going to set a new career high this campaign, as he has now tied last year's milestone of 49 points. The sniper is seeing almost three more minutes of ice time compared to his previous season, which has ultimately led to more chances on the first line for Toffoli. Expect the 2010 second-round pick to finish strong.
Toffoli tallied a goal and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Stars. In what was a common theme of Tuesday's game, Toffoli joined the likes of Trevor Lewis and Dustin Brown by scoring in two straight games after experiencing long scoring droughts. Toffoli's drought was a bit shorter than his teammate's at 10 games. The goal was the 23-year-old's 48th point on the season, which is just one shy of the career high he set last season.
Toffoli notched two helpers -- one on the power play -- along with five shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 9-2 mauling of the Bruins. Surprisingly, this was his first multi-point effort since Jan. 16, as Toffoli had suffered through a bit of a slump recently, netting a modest two points with a minus-5 rating in the last six games. Don't let that little skid discourage you, though, as Toffoli's now hit 40 points for the second time in his career and is on pace to blow past last season's 49. Things are only going to get better from here.
