Gaudreau scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Monday's 5-2 win over the Canucks. Gaudreau scored the game-tying goal in the second period, shooting through a Dominik Simon screen to beat Thatcher Demko. The 27-year-old Gaudreau added the assist in the dying seconds of the period, sending a cross-ice pass for Elias Lindholm to slam home. Gaudreau has posted four points (three on the power play) through three contests already this year -- he's in form and rewarding fantasy managers early on for their faith in his bounce-back potential.
Gaudreau recorded a power-play assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Canucks. Gaudreau had a shot turned aside by Braden Holtby on a third-period power play, but it fell for Matthew Tkachuk, who tucked it in at the side of the net. That's points in both games to start the year for Gaudreau, who can be notoriously streaky on offense. He's up to six shots to go with his two points, which have both come on the power play. Gaudreau and center Sean Monahan are still working on chemistry with a new right wing -- Josh Leivo played in that role Saturday but wasn't able to do much in a game dominated by special teams.
Gaudreau scored a goal on three shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets on Thursday. Gaudreau found the net from a sharp angle at the bottom of the left faceoff circle to give the Flames a 2-1 lead midway through the opening period. It's a good sign to see the 27-year old producing right out of the chute after he struggled through an 18-goal, 40-assist campaign in 2019-20. His 18 goals were half of the 36 he had collected one year prior, and his 58 points were a steep drop from the career-high 99 he had the previous season.
Gaudreau had 18 goals and 58 points in 70 regular-season games and another seven points in 10 playoff outings in 2019-20. Gaudreau's offense dropped off a cliff in 2019-20 after a 36-goal, 99-point 2018-19 campaign. However, Gaudreau showed promise with eight goals and 19 helpers in 28 contests between New Year's Day and the league's pause for the coronavirus outbreak. The 27-year-old winger is capable of playing near a point-per-game pace and will look to regain that form next season.
Gaudreau scored a power-play goal on five shots and added three hits in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Stars in Game 6. Gaudreau scored the second of the Flames' three goals in a span of 2:52 during the first period. He collected four goals and three helpers in 10 games during the playoffs, with six of his seven points coming with a man advantage.
