Eberle instantly becomes the highest paid forward for New York as he brings his $6 million cap hit. The winger compiled 51 points and 208 shots on goal while averaging just 16:46 of ice time this past season. The Isles will hope that the acquisition of the former first-round pick will help convince John Tavares to re-sign with the team before the end of the 2017-18 campaign when he is scheduled to hit free agency. Look for the 27-year-old Eberle to slot into a first-line role which figures to increase his fantasy production this year.
Eberle had no points, no shots and a minus-1 rating in Wednesday's Game 1 win over Anaheim.
Eberle has been a bad bet this postseason. He hasn't put up a point since the opening game and has only played more than 15 minutes once and that was an opening round overtime match.
Eberle notched an assist in Game 1, but has been pointless since.
Eberle hit the 50-point mark (20 goals, 31 assists) for the fourth time in seven seasons, while averaging 16:46 of ice time. The first five games have been unproductive for the 26-year-old winger, though, with just one assist, five hits, and three blocked shots, even though he has been clocking significant power-play ice time. Edmonton will have a chance to put the Sharks away Saturday night in San Jose.
Eberle finished with two goals and an assist in Thursday's 7-4 win over Colorado.
Eberle lit the lamp twice in a wild third period that saw his team erase a 4-2 deficit with five unanswered goals. Connor McDavid assisted on both of his tallies after coach Todd McLellan reunited the duo in an attempt to ignite the offense. Eberle's value would receive a substantial boost if this change remains permanent, as his struggles without the Hart Trophy candidate by his side have been well documented.
Eberle dished out a pair of power-play helpers in Thursday's 7-4 win over Boston.
Eberle did his damage with the second power-play unit, which scored two of his team's three goals with the extra man. He had gone exactly 20 games without contributing on the power play, posting just three goals and five assists in that stretch. Eberle compiled at least 63 points in each of his previous three campaigns with at least 70 appearances, so it's disappointing to see him reach that mark with just 42 points this time around.
