Rakell registered 18 goals and 43 points in the 2018-19 season. Rakell was viewed as a promising goal scorer after eclipsing the 30-goal mark in back-to-back seasons. The 25-year-old's game fell off badly this season, though. A big part of the free fall was his struggles at even strength, as his point total dropped from 69 last season to 43 this campaign, but his man-advantage total fell just six points.
Rakell delivered an assist and three shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Kings. Rakell ended the year at 43 points in 69 games, his lowest output since 2015-16. He also had 194 shots, and 13 of his points came with a man advantage. Fantasy owners expecting a repeat of his 69-point campaign from a year ago were disappointed, but he maintained some viability in fantasy formats.
Rakell recorded an assist, four shots and two hits in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Flames. Rakell is up to 42 points (18 goals, 24 helpers) in 68 games this season, as well as 191 shots on goal. Over his last 10 appearances, he has seven goals and four assists, storming out of a slump that saw him post just six points in 21 games in the first two months of 2019.
Rakell posted a hat trick with six shots on goal in a 5-1 victory against the Oilers on Saturday. The 25-year-old didn't score Friday, snapping a modest three-game goal streak, but he got right back in the goal column in a big way Saturday. He has seven goals and eight points in the last five games. For some, this is going to be too little, too late because Rakell was sitting on just 10 goals a week ago after posting 30-goal campaigns in each of the last two seasons. But if he continues this hot streak into next week, Rakell can record his fourth straight 20-goal season. He has 18 goals and 41 points with a minus-15 rating in 67 games during 2018-19.
Rakell scored a power-play goal for the third straight game in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Canucks. Rakell added five shots, two hits and two blocked shots in the contest. For the season, he has 15 goals and 38 points in 65 contests, with 13 of those points coming with the man advantage. He's posted 12 points over 14 games in March.
