  • Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Finalist for Lady Byng Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/21/18) Karlsson was announced as a top-three finisher for the Lady Byng Trophy on Saturday.

    The breakout star found himself looking for a new start with Vegas and proceeded to take the league by storm this year. After scoring just 18 goals and 50 points in his first 183 NHL contests, Karlsson posted a ridiculous 43 goals and 78 points along with a league-best plus-49 rating. The 25-year-old Swede has a goal and an assist so far in the postseason as his team waits to begin its second-round matchup against San Jose.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Gets on board in Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/18) Karlsson potted his first goal of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs Sunday, helping the Golden Knights to a 3-2 road win over the Kings.

    The Kings tried to trap Reilly Smith along the end boards, only for Smith to feed Karlsson right at the doorstep. "Wild Bill" failed to record a point through the first two games of these conference quarterfinals, but it was only a matter of time before he inflicted damage on the Kings. After all, Karlsson led the expansion club in goals (43) and points (78) during the regular season.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Stays red hot with three-point game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/18) Karlsson scored a power-play goal and added two assists at even strength in Tuesday's shootout win over Vancouver.

    Karlsson has now scored in three straight games and has compiled a whopping four goals and 12 points during a current five-game point streak. The 25-year-old is sitting on 43 goals and 78 points in 80 contests this season and remains an elite fantasy option. Karlsson's plus-49 rating and lethal scoring ability will make him a highly coveted target in playoff drafts.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Dazzles in division-clinching win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/18) Karlsson scored an incredible between-the-legs shorthanded goal and added an assist in Saturday's win over Sharks.

    It was a dazzling move from Karlsson, who helped the Golden Knights clinch the Pacific Division. The 25-year-old is up to 42 points and 75 points in 79 games, making him one of the biggest fantasy surprises of the season. The top-line forward is sporting a phenomenal plus-46 rating and has compiled three goals and nine points during a current four-game point streak. Karlsson is fantasy gold and an automatic roll whenever Vegas is in action.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Posts three points in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/18) Karlsson scored a goal and added two helpers Friday in a 4-3 overtime win over St. Louis.

    At 73 points, Karlsson is seven points shy of matching his career total from his first three seasons in the NHL in just this one season. When the season started, he was a longshot to even be the highest scoring Karlsson in the league, but he's been 14 points better than Ottawa's Erik Karlsson (no relation) and is second only to Jonathan Marchessault for the Golden Knights' scoring lead. Karlsson has had a fantastic year and will be highly valued next season.
