Orlov recorded a goal, two shots and a plus-1 rating in a 2-1 victory over the Flyers on Saturday. This was Orlov's first goal since he scored a pair versus Carolina on Jan. 23, but it was still a beautiful slap shot from the point. Since then, he has a goal and six points in the last 17 games. He only has five goals, but the tally gives Orlov 29 points, which tallies a career high. Orlov also has a career-high in shots, blocks and average time on ice.
Orlov collected a first-period assist during Friday's win over Edmonton. In the midst of a breakout campaign, Orlov is providing solid cross-category production with 27 points, 93 shots, 73 blocked shots, 34 PIM, 94 hits and a plus-28 rating. Additionally, he's proven capable of climbing the depth chart and upping his offensive impact when John Carlson or Matt Niskanen have missed time. Orlov is a universal fantasy asset attached to the best team and offense in the NHL.
Orlov recorded an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Bruins. The helper gives Orlov a career-high of 22 assists on the season as he continues to have a breakout campaign in 2016-17 with 26 points and a plus-23 rating in 51 games.
Orlov notched a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 5-2 win over New Jersey. He heads into the All-Star break sporting 25 points -- just four off his career high -- as well as a plus-21 rating over 49 games, so Orlov is truly in the midst of a breakout campaign. The 25-year-old tipped fantasy owners off last year by collecting 29 points despite averaging barely 16 minutes on the ice, and his increased role this season has him over 20 minutes most nights. His outlook remains rosy for the season's second half.
Orlov scored two goals -- one on the power play -- and blocked four shots during Monday's 6-1 win over Carolina. The Russian defenseman is well on his way to a breakout campaign, and after flashing fantasy upside last year, he's delivering solid results in 2016-17. Orlov might not be a universal own, but there aren't many settings where his modest cross-category production doesn't move the needle. He's up to a rock-solid four goals and 23 points with a plus-19 rating, after all.
