Sissons scored a goal in Thursday's 3-2 win over Vancouver. The bottom-six winger had been snake bitten of late, going seven games without finding the scoresheet. Sissons scored the first of three unanswered Nashville goals Thursday, resulting in an impressive come-from-behind victory for the home club. The goal gives him 14 on the year, to go along with 15 assists for a career-high 29 points.
Sissons scored his 13th goal of the season in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Sharks. Sissons has goals in consecutive games with the tally Saturday. He added four PIM, three shots and two hits in the contest. The goal gave Sissons a career-high 28 points in 66 appearances. The third-line forward may have some fantasy appeal in deeper formats, given his 93 hits and 96 shots this season to go along with the respectable point output.
Sissons scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Kings. Sissons assisted on Craig Smith's eventual game-winner, and then added an unassisted insurance tally just over two minutes later. He has a career-high 27 points (12 goals, 15 assists) in 65 games, as well as a plus-25 rating. The third-line center could make for an interesting depth addition down the stretch, but the two-point night did snap a six-game pointless drought.
Sissons lit the lamp in Monday's win over the Oilers. Sissons carried a nine-game pointless streak and a 17-game goalless drought into this contest. He was clearly itching to get back on the scoresheet, and he fired six shots on net with one getting through in the second period. Sissons enjoyed time on the second line in this outing, but he'll likely be relegated to the bottom six once recently acquired Mikael Granlund (personal) is ready to enter the lineup.
Sissons recorded his ninth straight game without a point Saturday against the Avalanche. Sissons had a nice six-game, six-point stretch in early January after returning from a seven-game absence due to a lower-body injury, but he's been awfully quiet since. Trouble is, after seeing top-six minutes earlier in the season, he's now seeing checking-line duties on the fourth line with Frederick Gaudreau and Rocco Grimaldi. Until Sissons gets put back in a scoring role, he's not worth owning in the majority of formats.
