  • Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Trending towards 40-point season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/1/18) Ekholm failed to register a point in seven straight games to close out the month of December. However, with 21 points in 38 games, he's still on pace to crack the 40-point plateau for the first time in his career.

    Ekholm may be scuffling a bit right now, but his 21 points puts him right up there with the Preds' two stud blueliners, P.K. Subban (29) and Roman Josi (23). Furthermore, roughly half of Ekholm's production this year has come on the power play (four goals, six helpers), where he's averaging 2:27 per game playing on the second unit. All things considered, Ekholm makes for a great d-man option in most fantasy leagues, especially in daily formats.

    Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Pitches in two assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/15/17) Ekholm tallied two helpers in a 4-0 win over Edmonton on Thursday.

    Ekholm has been flashing some dishing ability lately, racking up six assists in his last five games. With 21 points in 31 games, the 27-year-old Swede should easily surpass his career high of 35 set two seasons ago.

    Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Two power-play assists in 5-2 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/17) Ekholm dished out a pair of power-play assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Dallas.

    Ekholm's up to 18 points in 28 games, with half of those coming on the power play. The Swede's emergence as an offensive force on the back end has made it much easier for his team to deal with the absence of Ryan Ellis (knee), who still hasn't suited up this season after contributing 16 goals and 38 points in 2016-17. Ekholm's improved offense hasn't diminished his defensive capabilities, and he drove that point home in this one with a team-high five blocks to go with his two points.

    Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Breakout season unfolding

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/26/17) Ekholm recorded a power-play goal and added an assist during Sunday's loss to the Hurricanes.

    Ekholm has been on fire lately, with five goals and three assists over his last five games, with four of those five goals coming on the power play. Ekholm is clearly benefiting from his first-pairing assignment opposite defensive stud Roman Josi, and is now on pace for a breakout 55-point season. You know what to do.

    Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Scores for third straight game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/19/17) Ekholm scored for the third consecutive game and picked up four PIM in Saturday's win over Colorado.

    Ekholm is rolling right now and is now up to 12 points in 19 games. Two of the goals he's scored during this recent streak have come with the man advantage, as he's become a power-play contributor for the first time in his career. Nashville's blue line is loaded with talent, but Ekholm is logging heavy minutes in all situations and is on track for a career season. Use him well.
