Josi produced a power-play helper, six shots on goal and five blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Canucks. Josi has been consistent this year, with 18 points in as many games. He's generated 11 points with the man advantage. The Swiss defenseman also has 62 shots on goal and 29 blocked shots. He's only hit 60 points once in his previous eight seasons, but he's capable of challenging that mark in 2019-20 thanks to a hot start.
Josi finished Monday's 6-1 win over Detroit with two power-play assists. Fresh off signing an eight-year, $72.472 million contract extension with the Predators, Josi has continued to play at an elite level and now has 16 points, nine coming on power plays, in 15 games. The Swiss-born blueliner has been nothing short of brilliant to begin the 2019-20 campaign.
Josi signed an eight-year, $72.472 million contract extension with the Predators on Tuesday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports. Josi's new contract makes him the third highest paid defenseman in the NHL behind San Jose's Erik Karlsson and L.A.'s Drew Doughty. The deal is also believed to include a full no-move clause, which means Josi would have to agree to a trade to be moved prior to his extension's expiration in 2027-28. The 29-year-old has been extremely consistent for the Predators since his age-24 season in 2014-15, totaling at least 53 points in all but one of his five full campaigns since then, and has enjoyed a blistering start to this season, racking up five goals and 13 points while posting a plus-8 rating through his first 11 games. Josi's offensive production may begin to drop off during the latter half of his new deal, but he'll remain a high-end fantasy asset for the foreseeable future.
Josi scored a goal and added two assists in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Lightning. He had six shots on goal. Josi is riding a four-game, seven-point scoring streak and has at least one point in eight of his last nine games. Josi has produced at better than a 50-point pace for five consecutive seasons, but 2018-19 is even better so far. Maybe all he needed was P.K. Subban out of town. Use him well.
Josi recorded an even-strength assist in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Wild. With points in eight of 10 games to begin the 2019-20 season, it's been business as usual for Josi. The Predators' prized defenseman is chugging along at a point-per-game clip in the early stages and belongs in your lineup every single night. With four goals on 31 shots (12.9), Josi's shooting percentage could set him up to surpass 15 goals this season, something the Swiss defender has never done before in his career.
