Josi recorded an assist for the third straight game in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flames. That makes 21 points in 30 games for the Predators' captain, putting him on pace for a 57-point season and a chance at the 60-point mark for the second time in his career. Perhaps more impressive is that Josi has maintained his consistency even in the face of the team's depleted lineup, with key contributors such as Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson, Kyle Turris and P.K. Subban all on the IR with an assortment of injuries. This should be a reminder to all fantasy owners that Josi remains very much an elite scoring defenseman in the NHL and should be deployed whenever he takes to the ice.
Josi recorded a pair of helpers in a 5-2 win over the Ducks on Sunday. The Preds' captain now has 12 assists and 17 points, and Nashville managed to get back in the win column after getting steamrolled in St. Louis on Friday. Josi also logged more than nine minutes on special teams, including 4:03 on the power play.
Josi recorded an assist for the third straight game in Monday's 3-2 win over the Lightning. The Preds' captain is as hot as they come right now. In his last 10 games, he has three goals and eight assists, and he was held off the scoresheet only twice over that span. With 15 points in 21 contests, he currently sits tied for ninth overall in scoring among NHL defensemen. For obvious reasons, a healthy Josi always makes for a fine fantasy play whenever he takes to the ice.
Josi set up two goals in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Kings. He has 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in his last nine games and is starting to look like the Josi of old. His slow start is gone. Make sure you have him active.
Josi was the lone scorer in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Bruins. He fired a whopping 10 shots on goal and saw 25:50 in ice time, including 5:00 on the power play. The Preds' stud defenseman has now scored a goal in two consecutive games and has at least one point in five of the last seven. If he keeps this up, another 50-point season should be easily attainable. Needless to say, he should be in your fantasy lineup at every opportunity.
