Heinen picked up an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights. The helper is Heinen's sixth point in his last eight games. The Bruins have had trouble getting offense from their depth this season and Heinen is certainly being looked at as someone who should be producing more. He is on pace to match last season's 34 points despite putting up an impressive 47 points in his rookie season.
Heinen dished out two assists in a 6-5 shootout loss to the Flyers on Monday. That is his fifth multi-point game of the season despite only scoring in 15 games total. Heinen has five points over his last four games despite averaging only 12:27 in ice time. He has seven goals and 20 points in 46 games this season.
Heinen registered a goal and an assist, both while shorthanded, in Tuesday's 6-2 win over Nashville. Heinen scored his goal midway through the second period to put Boston ahead 2-0. He later assisted on Charlie Coyle's short-handed goal late in the third period to close out the scoring. Heinen had been quiet since just before Christmas, having gone his previous seven games without a point. The 24-year-old has seven goals and 17 points in 42 games.
Heinen scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Kings. The goal wasn't exactly a highlight-reel snipe, as Heinen may have used his skate to direct the puck into the net, but it held up under review. The 24-year-old had only produced one assist over his prior 10 games, and on the year he now has a modest six goals and 15 points through 35 contests.
Heinen picked up three shots and a hit in a 5-3 loss to the Senators on Monday. Heinen has only managed one point over his last seven games despite an ice time averaging 15:09 in that time. Head coach Bruce Cassidy currently has Heinen as the second-line right winger, but if his production doesn't step up, expect to see him slide back down to the third line.
