  • Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Reaches milestone in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/16/18) Karlsson became the first Golden Knights player to score 30 goals with a power-play tally in Thursday's win over the Oilers.

    Karlsson is riding a six-game point streak, and he's a prime reason why the Golden Knights are the first team in the Western Conference to hit 80 points. The 25-year-old is having a sensational debut season in Vegas with 50 points in 57 games and needs to be owned in all formats. Karlsson is sporting a fantastic plus-32 rating and is one of the most dynamic fantasy forwards in the game.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Collects two assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/18) Karlsson dished out a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's win over the Flames.

    Karlsson's excellent season continues, as the first-line center is now up to 27 goals and 44 points in 49 games. He's been held off the scoresheet just twice in his last 10 games and is sporting a remarkable plus-26 rating. What may be most impressive about his season is that he's only collected seven of his points with the man advantage and is barely averaging two shots on goal per game. The 25-year-old has some serious skill and it's coming to the forefront in what's been a phenomenal debut year with Vegas.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Nets pair of goals against former team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/18) Karlsson scored twice in Tuesday's win over Columbus.

    Karlsson stuck it to the team that left him unprotected in the expansion draft, extending his point streak to four games in the process. He's scored in three of those contests and now has 27 goals and 42 points in 47 games on the season. The top-line center is sporting an excellent plus-26 rating and can be rolled out with confidence in all formats.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Tallies game-winner

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/8/18) Karlsson scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 victory over the Rangers on Sunday.

    The 25-year-old is the gift that keeps on giving to fantasy owners. Karlsson set new career highs in the scoring categories about a month ago, but he continues to add to that every night. Through 41 games, he has 22 goals, 36 points and a plus-20 rating. In the last five contests, Karlsson has posted five goals and seven points. However, at some point, owners should expect the 25-year-old to slow down. He owns a 25.9 shooting percentage, which is a league high, and over the three previous seasons, Karlsson posted just a 7.7 shooting percentage.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Records two points versus Blackhawks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/18) Karlsson posted a goal, an assist, a plus-4 rating and four shots on goal in a 5-4 victory over the Blackhawks on Friday.

    With Friday's performance, Karlsson is adding to his already career-best totals. He's now up to 21 goals, 35 points and a plus-19 rating in 40 games. Prior to this season, he never scored more than nine goals or 25 points. Karlsson owns a league-high 26.3 shooting percentage, which indicates that he could slow down in the second half. Still, it's hard to ignore what the 24-year-old is doing this season.
