Yamamoto collected a helper and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Jets. Yamamoto had the lone helper on linemate Tyler Ennis' tally just nine seconds into the second period. The 21-year-old Yamamoto continues to flirt with a point-per-game pace -- he's at 11 goals, 26 points and a plus-17 rating through 27 contests this year.
Yamamoto posted an assist and six hits in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Golden Knights. The diminutive winger is no stranger to getting on the scoresheet, with 25 points in 26 appearances this season. Yamamoto's six hits, however, represent a personal best for a single game. The 21-year-old has added 41 shots on net, 44 hits and a plus-18 rating.
Yamamoto scored a goal on three shots and dished out a team-high five hits in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Chicago. Yamamoto roofed a shot from in close to make it a 4-3 game with 11:08 left in regulation, although it was initially ruled on the ice that Yamamoto's shot hit the post and bounced out. Video replay overturned the call, giving Yamamoto his 11th goal and 24th point in only 24 games this season. He also boasts a terrific plus-18 rating in those 24 games and has completely altered the complexion of Edmonton's scoring balance since he was recalled on New Year's Eve.
Yamamoto (ankle) scored a goal and dished an assist in Monday's 8-3 win over the Predators. Originally expected to miss significant time, Yamamoto ended up spending only three games on the shelf.

Yamamoto is up to 10 goals, 23 points, 37 shots and a plus-17 rating in 22 contests. It seems safe to slot the 21-year-old winger back into fantasy lineups.

Yamamoto has missed the last three games, but he's slated to return to the top six as well as the power play in this Western Conference clash. The 21-year-old had growing pains adjusting to the top level over the previous two seasons, but those issues are in the past, as he's racked up 21 points (nine goals, 12 assists) over 21 NHL games this season.
