Connor scored one power-play goal and fired three shots on net in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Kings. Connor is off to a fiery start with a goal in each of the first three games and one assist as well. This was Connor's first of the season on the power play, and he's averaging over three minutes per contest with the man advantage. The Jets travel to Nashville on Thursday.
Connor scored the Jets' only goal in a 5-1 loss to the Stars. Connor, who scored 31 goals and delivered 57 points as a rookie last year, is now riding a two-game, three-point scoring streak. He's emerging as a top star alongside Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler, and the trio form one of the best lines in the NHL. Get him on your keeper roster -- he could be a top-10 scorer in the NHL before long.
Connor registered a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-1 win over St. Louis. On the heels of a breakout sophomore campaign, the 21-year-old winger wasted no time opening his 2018-19 account. Moving forward, points should continue finding Connor, especially considering his place on Winnipeg's second power-play unit. Given the winger's dynamic playmaking ability, there's little reason to doubt he won't eclipse 60 points in his third NHL season.
Connor (neck) will be in the lineup against the Devils on Thursday. Thursday's contest is the Jets final preseason outing, so it should be filed primarily with guys that will make the 23-man roster. Connor figures to slot into his top-line role alongside Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler, which could set him up to best his career highs from last season (31 goals and 26 assists).
Connor (neck) will miss Monday's game versus the Flames, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports reports. Connor was held out of Sunday's game after taking a shot to the neck and according to head coach Paul Maurice, won't dress for Monday's contest in Calgary. By the sounds of it, the injury does not appear to be serious but it's still causing Connor to miss time. Rest assured the 21-year-old winger will be all systems go once the regular season gets underway.
