Stephenson registered a power-play assist Monday in a 5-4 overtime win over the WIld. It's been a terrific season for Stephenson, as he's seeing far more opportunities with the Golden Knights than he saw through parts of five seasons representing the Capitals. Stephenson is positioned on the top line, having produced five goals and just as many assists through 18 contests. His career-high totals include a gaudy 26.3 shooting percentage and four power-play points.
Stephenson scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Sharks. All three Vegas goals came with the man advantage, and Stephenson's tally gave the club an insurance marker in the third period. The 26-year-old has multi-point performances in three of the last four games, boosting his numbers on the season to five goals and nine points through 12 contests -- a blistering pace for a player who managed a career-high 11 goals and 26 points in 65 games last season. As long as he hangs onto a top-line assignment, however, Stephenson should remain a valuable fantasy asset even if he experiences some regression.
Stephenson scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Ducks. Stephenson went five-hole on Ducks goalie Ryan Miller to open the scoring in the first period. The 26-year-old forward also had the secondary helper on Zach Whitecloud's game-winner in the third period. Stephenson is up to seven points, a plus-6 rating and 12 shots on net through 10 appearances. He's produced multiple points three times.
Stephenson scored a pair of goals, one on the power play, in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Kings. Stephenson gave the Golden Knights a lead with both of his tallies, the latter standing as the game-winner. Entering Sunday, Stephenson had been held off the scoresheet in five straight contests. The 26-year-old has three scores and two helpers through nine games this season, as the success of linemates Max Pacioretty and Mark Stone has only infrequently included Stephenson.
Stephenson scored a goal and dished an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes. Stephenson set up Max Pacioretty late in the second period to get Vegas on the board. In the third, a Zach Whitecloud shot deflected off of Stephenson's back and into the net, counting as the latter's first goal of the year. The 26-year-old forward is up to three points in as many games -- centering Pacioretty and Mark Stone is doing well for his offense.
