Andrew Ladd contributed a goal and an assist Wednesday against the Capitals, but it wasn't enough as the Winnipeg Jets lost, 5-3.
Ladd had been scoreless in eight games before ending the drought Wednesday. He's a top-line talent adept at finding the back of the net and setting up scores. Ladd has five goals and 10 helpers this season, however, the Jets have dropped two consecutive decisions to put their record at 10-11-2 in a competitive Central Division. Since Ladd is the team captain, he has more pressure than most to get the Jets back in the win column.
Andrew Ladd chipped in a pair of points, scoring a goal and grabbing an assist in Sunday's win over the Winnipeg Jets .
It's Ladd's second multi-point effort of the season, as he and line-mate Bryan Little each found the net just 2:05 apart in the opening five minutes of the contest. The 29-year-old posted a career-high 62 points last season, and appears to be on his way to challenge that mark with six points through eight tilts this year.
Winnipeg Jets forward Andrew Ladd picked up an assist on two shots and 16:56 of ice time Thursday against the Boston Bruins .
Ladd left a preseason game a week ago with an undisclosed injury, but that is obviously well behind him. He's started the 2015-16 campaign off strong by notching an assist in his first game, and will look to top his career-high 62 points (24 goals, 38 assists) from last season.
