  • Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Two assists on man advantage

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/19/19) Karlsson registered a pair of power-play assists as well as two hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 5.

    Karlsson has three points, nine blocks, 10 shots and a minus-2 rating through five games in the series. His top line with Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith has taken a back seat to the Golden Knights' second line so far in the playoffs, which has led to the top trio struggling a bit for scoring. That trend reversed in Game 5, however, with the top line providing all of Vegas' offense.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Registers helper

    (4/2/19) Karlsson collected an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over the Oilers.

    In his last nine games, Karlsson has seven helpers and five goals, putting his production into overdrive to close out the campaign. The Swedish center has 56 points in 80 games this season, and while he's nowhere near the 78 points he posted in a breakout effort last year, he's maintained plenty of fantasy value.

    (3/28/19) Karlsson picked up an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    The helper gives Karlsson his second straight 30-assist season, as well as 53 points in 77 games overall. He's 25 points behind his 78 points from last year, but regression was likely for this campaign, which has come in the form of a 9.3 percent drop in shooting percentage.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Pots goal in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/19) Karlsson lit the lamp on the power play in Monday's loss to the Blues.

    Karlsson picked up a rebound off Colin Miller's shot early in the second period and sent it home to tie the game 1-1. This was Karlsson's 23rd goal of the season, and he's still 20 points short of the monstrous 43-goal mark he posted in the Golden Knights' inaugural season.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Pockets three points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/19) Karlsson scored on both of his shots and added a helper in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Jets.

    Karlsson blew right by 50 points, with 22 goals and 29 helpers in 74 games after his third-straight multi-point outing. In nine games in March, Karlsson has recorded four goals and eight assists. It may have taken nearly all year, but Karlsson is beginning to resemble the player who notched 78 points in his breakout campaign last season.
