Atkinson scored his team-leading 27th goal of the season and also had an assist in Tuesday's 5-1 win over New Jersey. Atkinson now has six points over his last four games. He leads his team in goals and is second in points with 48, trailing only Artemi Panarin (who has 52). A big part of Atkinson's success this season has been his ability to convert on scoring chances, as the forward currently sports a shooting percentage of 15.3, nearly five points over his career mark of 10.9. So long as the 29-year-old stays healthy, it appears inevitable that Atkinson's 2018-19 season will go down as his best to date.
Atkinson scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 7-5 win over the Rangers. He also fired four shots with a plus-3 rating in the wild affair.

Atkinson tallied a power-play assist, a minus-2 rating and two shots during Thursday's 4-3 overtime win against the Predators. Atkinson picked up his 43rd point of the season on Artemi Panarin's overtime goal.

Atkinson scored a goal and collected two assists in Monday's 6-3 win against Ottawa. He also registered a plus-5 rating. Atkinson is lighting it up this year with 42 points in 38 games after scoring just 46 all of last year. Part of that is his ridiculous shooting, as he's currently on pace for well over 300 shots on goal. Atkinson has already matched last season's goal total of 24 and is currently getting just under 19:30 of ice time per night, a career best.

The 29-year-old now has an eye-popping 22 goals and 37 points in 34 games on the season, and his chemistry with Artemi Panarin and Pierre-Luc Dubois has the sniper headed for a career-best campaign.
