Kucherov leads Tampa Bay in scoring with 45 points in 32 games. His 12 goals and 33 helpers put him third in the NHL, behind only two Avs -- Mikko Rantanen and Nathan MacKinnon. And Kucherov is the top forward in the league when it comes to power-play production (18 points). The Bolts are a powerhouse team and Kooch leads the way for them, just like he does on your fantasy squad.
Kucherov went minus-2 with four empty shots on goal versus the Red Wings on Tuesday, but his shootout goal was the difference in a 6-5 road win. Leave it to the Red Wings, who are ranked no better than 20th in any of the key metrics defensively this season, to snap the electrifying Russian's 10-game point streak that was comprised of five goals and 19 assists. Still, Kucherov gave Tampa its 13th straight win over Detroit with a slick wrist shot in the shootout stanza.
Kucherov scored a goal and added three assists in Monday's 5-1 win over the Devils. Two of the helpers came on the power play, and Kucherov also chipped in two shots, two PIM, a hit and a plus-2 rating. The 25-year-old has found the scoresheet in 10 straight games, scoring a massive five goals and 24 points over that stretch, and with 42 points through 28 games he sits just behind Colorado's dynamic duo of Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen in the NHL scoring race.
Kucherov scored a goal and added two assists in Saturday's 5-4 victory over Florida. Kucherov's scoring streak stands at nine games and 20 points, including 16 assists. He sits tied with Mitch Marner of Toronto for third in the NHL in points (38) and is tied with David Pastrnak of Boston for the lead in power-play points (15). Kucherov's star is incredibly bright -- he ticks every fantasy box except PIM.
Kucherov scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Sabres. Kucherov is a top-five offensive player in the NHL and he's on an eight-game, 17-point scoring streak (three goals, 14 assists). He's on pace to score more than 30 goals, but that's a lot fewer than the 40 and 39 he's drained in the last two years. Kooch's game has changed a bit this season, but he's still an exceptional fantasy play and on pace for 110 points. Deploy him with confidence.
