Scheifele scored an empty-net goal and added two assists in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Senators. Scheifele had the secondary helpers on Kyle Connor's second-period tally and Paul Stastny's power-play game-winner in the third. The 27-year-old Scheifele then finished the scoring with an empty-netter. The Ontario native is soaring early in the year, with three scores, five helpers and 18 shots on goal through five appearances.
Scheifele collected a goal and an assist and was plus-2 in Thursday's 4-1 win over Ottawa. He also won 11 of 13 faceoffs (84.6 percent). Scheifele extended the Jets' lead to 2-0 with a tap-in goal just over four minutes into the second period. He also drew an assist in the latter stages of the second period when he sprung Blake Wheeler on the doorstep to make it 4-0. It was the second straight two-point game for Scheifele, who has two goals and three assists through four games.
Scheifele scored a goal on a team-leading six shots Thursday in a 4-3 overtime win over Calgary. He also won nine of 17 faceoffs (52.9 percent). Scheifele scored a rebound tally in the opening minute of the second period to draw the Jets to within 3-2, the first of three unanswered goals by the home team. The 27-year-old racked up 29 goals and 73 points in 2019-20, his fifth straight campaign with at least 20 goals and 60 points.
Scheifele (leg) told reporters he won't need surgery and anticipates being 100 percent for the 2020-21 campaign, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports. Scheifele ended the regular season with six goals and eight helpers in his final 11 games, helping him reach the 70-point mark for the second straight year. Assuming he's fully fit, the world-class center should continue being a top point producer for the Jets and an elite-level fantasy option.
Scheifele (leg) apparently didn't suffer a significant injury, as coach Paul Maurice told reporters, "We don't think there's any Achilles damage," Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Scheifele still needs to undergo additional testing, however, early indications are he avoided tearing his Achilles. As long as there isn't any significant damage, the world-class center figures to be ready to go for the start of the 2020-21 campaign. Considering he topped the 70-point mark in each of the previous two campaigns, season-long fantasy players should be looking at Scheifele early in their drafts.
