Giroux collected three assists -- including two helpers on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Red Wings.

Fantasy players who bet on a rebound from his 58-point 2016-17 campaign should be ecstatic about Giroux's return to elite form.
Giroux scored his 24th goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Jets. With the goal, Giroux extended his current point streak to six games and seven points (two goals, five assists). He has 81 points, which plunks him into a three-way tie with Connor McDavid and Nathan McKinnon for third in NHL scoring. Giroux is just about as automatic as they come for fantasy activation.
