Parayko had four shots on net and a power-play assist in Tuesday night's 4-1 loss to the Flames. He also added a hit and a blocked shot in 19:34 of ice time.
The assist was the season's first man-advantage point for Parayko, who is a regular on the team's second power-play unit. His booming shot from the point fueled a surprising nine goals, including four on the power play, as a rookie in 2015-16. He's the heir apparent to Kevin Shattenkirk on the top power-play unit, if the Blues don't re-sign Shattenkirk. Apart from his value as a member of the power play, Parayko is also a team leader in blocked shots. He was second on the team last season with 122 in 79 games, and is currently the leader this season with 16.
Saad netted his first goal of the year Tuesday, opening the scoring in Tuesday's overtime loss in Los Angeles.
He'd picked up just one assist in the first four games If you can capitalize on Saad's slow start to pick him up via trade, do it -- we're talking about a supremely talented sniper who's at the center of just about everything the Blue Jackets do on offense. His power-play time has been thin early on, but has more to do with the team not drawing many penalties so far (10 man-advantage chances in five games) than any shortcoming of Saad's.
Martinez scored in overtime again Tuesday, banging home a rebound to deliver a 3-2 win over Columbus.
Stop us if you've heard this one before. Martinez has earned himself a reputation for overtime heroics -- not only with his Stanley Cup winner in 2014, but also to start this season, as both of his goals have come in the extra frame. He's also sitting on five points in six games, which is a promising start to Martinez's efforts to improve upon last season's career-high 31 points. The 29-year-old certainly has the talent to hit 40 points for the first time this year, but he tends to go through hot and cold stretches; the Kings will ask him for more offensive consistency this year, as they need to make up for the absence of star goalie Jonathan Quick (groin).
Napier didn't appear in Tuesday's 113-104 season-opening win over the Jazz in a coach's decision.
Napier had been dealing with an ankle issue heading into last weekend, but since he was left off the injury report prior to the opener, it appears safe to say he's reasonably healthy. As the fourth man on the depth chart at point guard behind Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Evan Turner, Napier isn't expected to play in most competitive games unless one of the players ahead of him succumbs to an injury.
Toffoli notched a pair of secondary assists -- including helping out on Alec Martinez's game-winner -- in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against the Jackets.
The 24-year-old has been a quiet producer in the early going, having notched five points in six games -- but only a single goal, which is far less than fantasy owners expect from a guy who potted 31 last year. Still, it's a small sample size and he's a hugely talented player seeing career-high minutes on the Kings' first line, so look for Toffoli to start finding twine before long.
