Gaudreau scored the game-winning goal and chipped in a helper in Thursday's 5-1 win over Tampa Bay. The pair of points brings Johnny Hockey up to 10 over an impressive five-game point streak. Gaudreau is clipping along at the most prolific scoring pace of his career with 14 goals and 37 assists in 43 games, making him one of the most valuable fantasy wingers in the league heading into the All-Star break.
Gaudreau assisted on all three goals during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Minnesota. Now up to 13 tallies and 36 helpers through 42 contests, Gaudreau is well on his way to the first point-per-game campaign of his career. He's also now sporting a four-game assist streak with eight total, and the 24-year-old winger is showing the same offensive brilliance that made him a fantasy star throughout the 2015-16 season.
Gaudreau dished out a pair of helpers in Thursday's 4-3 win over Los Angeles. Gaudreau set up linemates Michael Ferland and Sean Monahan for a goal apiece. The skilled distributor is two-thirds of the way to his career high of 48 assists and has 13 goals to boot through 40 games. Those who bought low after he dropped from 78 points to 2015-16 season to 61 last year are reaping the benefits now.
Gaudreau has five points in his last 10 games and has just one multi-point game in his last 14. Gaudreau's slow production has coincided with the loss of Kris Versteeg, who last played Nov. 24. Gaudreau had 34 points in 22 games with Versteeg, but just seven points in 14 games since. Versteeg is month-to-month, so let's hope this trend is just a fluke and not a foreshadowing.
Gaudreau scored his 12th goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's loss to the Oilers. Gaudreau had been coming off his longest scoring drought of the season, as the 24-year-old was held off the scoresheet in his prior three outings. We knew the drought wouldn't last for long, however, as Gaudreau has been one of the best fantasy forwards this season. The slick playmaker is up to 36 points in 26 contests and is an automatic roll every game.
