  • Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Garners fortuitous goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/2/18) Karlsson picked up his ninth goal of the season Saturday, but the Golden Knights suffered a 2-1 road loss to the Oilers.

    Karlsson was able to skip the puck off the defenseman Oscar Klefbom's skate for the unassisted goal. Wild Bill is up to 21 points through 28 games, sharing the team lead with top-line cohort Jonathan Marchessault, who's registered 10 goals and 11 helpers.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Two points in commanding win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/18/18) Karlsson opened the scoring for Vegas and also produced an assist in a 6-3 win over host Edmonton on Sunday.

    Many a fantasy hockey pundit had Karlsson pegged as a bust candidate leading up to the 2018-19 campaign, and with 16 points (five goals, 11 assists) over 21 games, Wild Bill is on pace for 15 fewer points than he provided Vegas in its magical inaugural season. However, the team welcomed puck-moving defenseman Nate Schmidt back from a 20-game suspension Sunday, and that should help Karlsson produce more consistently in the attacking zone.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Three-point night in loss to Habs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/11/18) Karlsson scored a goal and two assists in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Canadiens.

    The goal and one of the helpers came with the man advantage. Things haven't come quite so easily for Karlsson during his second season in Vegas. Saturday's effort was only his third multi-point game of the season, although his four goals and 14 points through 17 games still puts him on pace for a strong fantasy season, and his regular spot on the power play gives him a secure floor.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Tallies goal in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/27/18) Karlsson scored on his only shot in a 3-2 loss to the Lightning on Friday.

    Scoring on one shot raised Karlsson's shooting percentage to 18.8 percent, which is certainly a healthy number, but still significantly lower than his 23.4 clip from last season. It's extremely unlikely he repeats the 2017-18 shooting percentage, but at least early this season, Karlsson is proving he can get close to it again. The problem, though, is he only has 16 shots on net for three goals. That puts him on pace for about 25 goals, which is a respectable mark but well short of his 43 from last season.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Registers two points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/17/18) Karlsson scored a goal and added a helper in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Sabres.

    Karlsson set up a beautiful backdoor pass for Jonathan Marchessault on the power play to open up scoring in the first period. The 25-year-old later deflected a pass from Reilly Smith in the third period for his first goal of the season. He now has six points -- just one on the power play -- through seven games.
