Keller scored a power-play goal and added three assists for his first four-point game in the NHL Thursday against Montreal. Keller dominated the struggling Canadiens and helped Arizona to a 5-2 victory. The rookie is heating up of late, managing three goals and eight points in his last five games. Keller's slick offensive skills make him a must-own forward across multiple formats. He's up to 17 goals and 44 points in 58 games and will be an enticing fantasy player for years to come.
Keller scored a goal, added an assist, received a minor penalty and posted a plus-2 rating during Monday's 6-1 win over Chicago. With Monday's strong showing, the rookie has now found the scoresheet in three consecutive games and is up to a respectable 16 goals and 24 assists through 56 games for the year. Keller has been prone to offensive peaks and valleys this season, but that's typical for young players, and he's avoided lengthy slumps for the most part. It wouldn't be shocking if Keller took a notable step forward next year.
Keller netted the overtime winner Thursday against the Wild. Keller beat Devan Dubnyk with a great snipe for his first goal in 13 games. The rookie was slumping prior to Thursday, having managed just two assists in his previous seven games. Hopefully scoring his second overtime winner of the season will light a fire under him, as Keller has cooled off after a great stretch from mid-December to January. With 15 goals and 37 points in 54 games, Keller is still worth owning in many fantasy formats.
Keller skated to a plus-2 rating and set up two goals in Saturday's 5-2 road win over the Blues. That was the seventh multi-point outing for Keller, who continues to make a strong case for the Calder Trophy. His minus-18 rating -- while more indicative of the team's overall struggles -- is an eyesore, but the American pivot has more than made up for it with four goals and seven helpers on the man advantage. It's easy to see why the 'Yotes nabbed him seventh overall in the 2016 draft, and this is only the beginning of what figures to be an illustrious NHL career for Keller.
Keller notched a point in his eighth straight game, but the Coyotes have now lost three of their past four games. It's the same ol' story for Keller and Coyotes, who are now 9-27-5 this season and headed straight for the draft lottery once again. Keller played 19:13, trailing only Derek Stepan among forwards in ice time, and finished the game with a minus-3 rating. Keller has some Patrick Kane-esque upside, but playing on a losing team and without an elite No. 1 center to help shoulder the offensive load hurts his fantasy value.
