The was Kane's third career hat trick and his first of the 2016-17 campaign, lighting the lamp in every period.

No, he's not likely to come near the career-high 103 points that he dropped last season, but Kane is still averaging greater than a point per game (63 in 61) and remains an elite fantasy option.

The 2015-16 MVP didn't register a point Saturday, but he has points in six of his last seven contests. He has recorded five goals and 11 points during that span. It's been a relatively quiet season compared to last season, but Kane is averaging over a point per game and just hit the 20-goal mark. He has at least 20 goals in all 10 of his seasons and is on pace for his third 80-point campaign.

This was just another day at the office for Kane, who opened the scoring in the first and assisted on an Artemi Panarin tally in the second period. While the American winger's 16 goals rank fourth on his team behind Marian Hossa, Panarin and Artem Anisimov, his 35 helpers give Kane a five-point cushion on Panarin for the team lead. Kane's three power-play goals are a shockingly low total compared to last season's 17.
