Zibanejad finished the season with 30 goals and 44 assists in 82 games. After battling concussion issues in past seasons, Zibanejad finally put together a healthy campaign, finishing with career highs in goals, assists and points. He was easily the Rangers' most dangerous offensive player, despite scoring only 11 goals on the power play after potting 14 a season ago. Injuries are the only real concern for the soon-to-be 26-year-old center, as he proved he can deliver with a subpar supporting cast and should only get better as the retooling Rangers add more talent around him.
Zibanejad notched two assists in Friday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets. The 25-year-old is finishing up his breakout season in style, piling up two goals and seven points in the last seven games. Zibanejad has meshed well with Pavel Buchnevich on the Rangers' top line down the stretch, and the duo could be a dangerous fantasy force in 2019-20.
Zibanejad scored two goals and recorded a team-high five shots on net in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to Boston. For the first time in his career, Zibanejad has 30 goals, giving him 70 points through 76 games. Prior to 2018-19, the 25-year-old's best season statistically was 2015-16, which featured 51 points in 81 games with Ottawa. Since joining the Rangers, the Swede has taken his game to another level and is banging on the door of elite fantasy status.
Zibanejad picked up two assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Devils. After going scoreless over the prior four games, it seemed only a matter of time before the 25-year-old broke out again. Zibanejad now has a goal and seven points in eight games since Mats Zuccarello (arm) was dealt to Dallas, and he should continue building on his career-best numbers down the stretch regardless of who his linemates are.
Zibanejad notched a 5-on-5 goal in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers. Zibanejad is rocking a three-game point streak with a goal and four helpers over that span. He cleared 20 minutes of ice time in every February contest except for one, and even more of the offensive responsibility is on his shoulders since the team traded Mats Zuccarello (arm) to the Stars. With 27 goals and 36 assists, Zibanejad is on track to finish the season averaging a point per game for the first time in a fine career that's been split between the Senators and Rangers.
