Connor amassed 38 goals and 73 points in 71 games this season. Connor has officially emerged as a legitimate superstar and is arguably the best NHLer who's not yet a household name. His goals and points were both tops on the Jets, as were his whopping 239 shots -- which ranked 10th in the league. The Michigan native has now reeled off three straight 30-plus-goal seasons (31, 34 and 38), which should dispel any doubts about his staying power as a constant scoring threat and elite fantasy asset. If the NHL is able to hold its 24-team playoff, poolies would be wise to roll with Connor in Winnipeg's play-in series against Calgary.
Connor tallied a pair of goals on four shots and had two PIM in a 4-2 win over Edmonton on Wednesday. Connor potted the game-winning goal just 29 seconds into the third period, then sealed the victory with an empty-netter in the final minute. They were the 37th and 38th goals of the season for Connor, who has lit the lamp in six of his last seven games, with a scorching eight goals and 10 points in that span. The 23-year-old also eclipsed the 200-point plateau for his career with his two-goal performance.
Connor scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights. Connor has lit the lamp in five straight games -- he has six goals and two helpers in that span. The 23-year-old left wing is cruising with career bests in multiple categories, including goals (36), points (71) and shots on net (231) through 69 outings. Connor has shot 15.6 percent this year, which isn't much higher than his 15.3 percent rate for his career. That suggests his spike in offense this year could be sustainable.
Connor registered two goals and an assist with four shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Sabres. Connor figured in on every Winnipeg goal and picked up one point each at even strength, on the power play and shorthanded. He opened the scoring with 6:01 left in the first period and set up a Tucker Poolman short-handed effort just over two minutes later. Connor closed out the scoring on the power play early in the second with his 35th goal of the season. The 23-year-old has found the net in three straight games and his big night put him at exactly 70 points on the year.
Connor netted a goal on seven shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers. Connor put the Jets ahead 2-1 just 34 seconds after Logan Shaw got the Jets on the board in the second period. The tally was Connor's 100th in his career, a mark he achieved in 245 games. The winger is on a three-game point streak (three goals, one assist). He's racked up a career-high 67 points as well as 225 shots and a plus-1 rating in 67 contests this year.
