Scheifele scored a goal in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Oilers. It should've been the sealer for the Jets, as Scheifele's rebound goal 62 seconds into the third frame extended their lead to 4-1. However, Connor McDavid fueled a third period comeback for the ages to ruin their party. It was Scheifele's only point in the last three games as he tries following up a point-per-game, 2017-18 season.
Scheifele scored one goal and fired seven shots on net in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Kings. Scheifele tied the game in the first period when Brandon Tanev dished him a backdoor pass that he tucked past Jack Campbell. That marks three points -- one on the power play -- and 11 shots through three games. Scheifele also logged a massive 24:42 of ice time in the contest.
Scheifele tallied two assists in Thursday's 5-1 win versus the Blues. Scheifele assisted on Patrick Laine's opening goal and then again on Blake Wheeler's third-period marker. Like most gifted pivots, the 25-year-old has registered more assists than goals in every season that he's played in the NHL. With Winnipeg's high-octane offense set to take the league by storm, expect a big year out of No. 55.
Scheifele scored two goals and added an assist in Winnipeg's 5-3 preseason win over the Oilers on Sunday. The 25-year-old missed 22 games a season ago yet still managed to finish the year with 60 points in as many games. Scheifele has the ability to be a point-per-game player, something he has done the past two seasons. Look for that trend to continue in 2018-19.
Scheifele failed to tally a point in the Jets' last two playoff contests. Prior to his end of year slump, Scheifele racked up 20 points in the previous 15 postseason outings, including four power-play goals. Although injuries limited the center to just 60 games this year, he still managed to tally 23 goals and 37 assists for a point-per-game pace. If the 24-year-old can stay healthy, there is little reason to doubt he could reach 80-plus points in 2018-19 -- a feat he achieved during the 2016-17 campaign.
