Thus Ladd's painfully long 14-game goalless streak has finally come to an end. He's well behind his 2014-15 point pace, but continues to see significant ice time, averaging 19:34, including 2:53 with the man advantage. After a fast start to the season, the 30-year-old has tapered off, notching only six points in his last 13 outings.
Ladd had been scuffling recently, with two assists and a minus-3 rating spread over a seven-game span, but it's hard to keep him down for too long. His season totals remain disappointing, but Ladd's long been a consistent fantasy performer, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him get back on track with a nice little hot streak.
Ladd has hit a rut, recording a single point in his last five outings. Despite averaging almost 20 minutes of ice time per game, the winger is struggling to capitalize. The 30-year-old will look to right the ship against Buffalo's leaky defense Sunday -- the Sabres are allowing 2.68 goals per game this season.
Andrew Ladd netted his ninth goal of the season and had an assist in Friday's win over the Rangers.
Quite the night for the top line, as Ladd, Blake Wheeler and Bryan Little combined for nine points in the victory. Ladd has been held off the scoresheet in his previous four outings, but he's now up to 20 points in 32 games on the season. The Winnipeg captain doesn't put up huge point totals, but he scores enough to make him valuable in most fantasy formats.
Andrew Ladd opened the scoring for the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday in a 2-1 overtime win against the Caps.
That gives Ladd goals in three straight games and four of the last five. He's got eight on the year, but he's feeling it right now, averaging four shots a game over that five-game span.
