  • Kucherov's goal-scoring streak now stands at five games after he notched the game winner in a 2-1 victory over the Blues on Saturday night. Five games, five goals and eight points. Kucherov notched 40 tallies in 74 games last season -- is 50 within reach? Barring injury, we sure think so. Wow.

  • Kucherov stretched his goal streak to four games with a goal and assist in Thursday's win over the Penguins. Kucherov has four goals and seven points in four games this season and is tied with Brayden Point for the team lead in points. The stud winger set new career marks last year in goals (40) and points (85), and should be able to repeat those tallies in 2017-18. He's just that good.

  • Kucherov recorded a goal, an assist and four shots on net over 25:34 of ice time (6:47 with the man advantage) during Monday's 4-3 overtime win against Washington. Kucherov has registered a goal in each of the first three games of the season, and he's also added a helper in the past two outings. The 24-year-old winger is quickly proving that his career-best 85-point showing in 2016-17 was a sign of things to come. Kucherov should be viewed as an elite asset in all fantasy settings.

  • Kucherov delivered a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-4 loss to Florida. The assist came with the man advantage. The 24-year-old Russian and Steven Stamkos have wonderful chemistry, and Vladislav Namestnikov has shown well as the line's third man. Kucherov is looking to improve on his 85-point season in 2016-17, and barring injury, he has a legitimate shot.

  • Kucherov scored his first goal of the season Friday in a 5-3 win over the Panthers. It stood as the winner. Kucherov is among the league's top-10 players. You know what to do.
