    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Named NHL's "first star" for month of January

    Kuznetsov was named the first star of the month of January. Kuznetsov has emerged as a dominant offensive force this season and continued his torrid pace throughout January, tallying four goals and 16 points in 10 games last month. Leading the NHL in primary assists with 29, the 23-year-old Russian has 15 goals and 49 points with a league-leading plus-24 rating in 47 games this season, and is a must start in all formats.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Dishes out three helpers in win

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Has three-point outburst against Canucks

    Kuznetsov potted two goals (one into an empty net), adding an assist and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Canucks. The breakout continues. Kuznetsov and the Caps had a golden opportunity at home against a Vancouver team with goalie Ryan Miller just returning from injury, and they capitalized. The kid's own-zone play has been just as impressive as his offensive production, as he's now plus-23 on the year -- that's the best mark on the league's best team. It doesn't even seem fair to the rest of the league that the Caps have Kuznetsov on the same team as Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Braden Holtby.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Delivers another spectacular outing

    Kuznetsov scored a power-play goal and picked up an even-strength assist Tuesday in a 3-2 win over Boston. For fantasy owners who were smart enough to draft Kuznetsov, the good times are still rolling. The 6-foot-3 center made an outstanding play to set up Andre Burakovsky in the first period, then created space for himself on the man advantage and fired a beauty past Tuukka Rask in the second. That makes six points in the last four games for Kuznetsov, and with 39 on the season, he's now cleared last year's rookie total while operating at nearly a point-per-game pace. A star has been born.

The fun seemingly doesn't stop for Kuznetsov and those of you lucky enough to have him rostered in fantasy leagues.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Sets up two goals Wednesday

    Kuznetsov recorded two assists in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Buffalo. He also fired six shots on goal. The third-year NHLer is up to 33 points in 36 games this year, as well as a plus-18 rating that's identical to linemate Alex Ovechkin's and fourth overall in the entire league. Kuznetsov is just four points off his career-high 37 set last season (over 80 games) so it appears as though the sky's the limit right now for the 23-year-old.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Collects two points in win

    Kuznetsov registered a goal and an assist in Sunday's win over the Rangers. Kuznetsov has been a bit streaky of late, suffering through a pair of three-game pointless stretches in the past month, but he ended his latest drought with the multi-point effort and finished with a plus-3 rating in the process. The 23-year-old is already up to 30 points and should easily pass last season's 37-point output.
