Gurianov signed a two-year, $5.1 million contract with the Stars on Thursday.
Gurianov emerged as one of Dallas' best scorers in 2019-20, racking up best 20 goals and nine helpers in 64 regular-season contests before adding nine goals and eight assts in 27 games during the Stars' lengthy postseason run. The 23-year-old winger is expected to fill a top-six role as well as a spot on one of Dallas' power-play units in 2020-21, and he should only continue to improve in what will be his second full NHL campaign, so he could be a sneaky-good selection in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
Gurianov scored a goal and added an assist, both on the power play, in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 5.
Gurianov played a key role in the Stars' Game 5 comeback, assisting on Joel Kiviranta's game-tying goal in the third period. Another man-advantage situation allowed Gurianov to finish the series with his tally 3:36 into overtime. Those were his first two points of the Western Conference finals. The Russian now has nine goals, eight assists, 47 shots on goal and 67 hits through 21 playoff contests. Eight of his 17 points have come in games where the Stars eliminated their opponents.
Gurianov registered an assist in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche in Game 7.
Gurianov had a hand in the first of Joel Kiviranta's three tallies in Friday's game. The 23-year-old Gurianov is showing his five-point explosion in Game 6 versus the Flames wasn't a fluke. He's now riding a six-game point streak, during which he has two goals and six assists. The Russian winger is up to 15 points, 36 shots on net and 47 hits through 16 postseason contests overall, which has earned him a top-six job and a decent role on the power play.
Gurianov managed an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Avalanche in Game 6.
Gurianov's point streak is now at five games -- during that span, he has two goals and five assists. The Russian winger is up to eight tallies, six helpers, 46 hits and 34 shots on net through 15 contests. The 23-year-old wasn't anywhere near a point-per-game pace in the regular season with 29 points in 64 outings. Gurianov has become a key part of the Stars' offense and will be relied on to make an impact in Friday's Game 7.
Gurianov had three assists, three hits and three shots on goal in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche in Game 5.
Gurianov had a hand in each of the Stars' goals, but even his three-point effort wasn't enough to overcome an early five-goal deficit.

Gurianov has been held off the scoresheet just once in five outings against the Avalanche, posting two markers and four assists in the series.
Gurianov scored a goal on four shots and added five hits in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Avalanche in Game 3.

Gurianov has been a solid contributor on the second line with six goals and two helpers in 11 games, although five of his eight points came in Game 6 versus the Flames. The Russian winger has added 33 hits, 26 shots on net and a minus-1 rating during the playoffs.
Gurianov scored four times and added an assist in Thursday's 7-3 win over the Flames in Game 6.
Gurianov's monster performance came as the Stars put up seven unanswered goals in the contest after falling behind 3-0. The Russian winger became just the second rookie in NHL history to score four times in a playoff game. Gurianov now has six goals, an assist, 21 shots and 25 hits through nine postseason outings. While he likely won't have another effort like this, the 23-year-old rookie has firmed up his role on the second line.

Gurianov got the Stars on the board with his tally at 10:52 of the second period. The Russian winger led the Stars with 20 goals in 64 contests in 2019-20. He played with Joe Pavelski and Mattias Janmark in Game 1 -- that trio functions in a middle-six capacity under head coach Rick Bowness, who likes to balance offense across his lines.
Gurianov tallied 20 goals and nine assists in 64 games prior to the pause of play in mid-March.
On a team featuring Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, Joe Pavelski and Alexander Radulov, it's shocking to many that Gurianov is the goal leader. After an unspectacular rookie showing last year (four points in 21 games), the 2015 12th-overall pick seems to have developed an affinity for finding twine, though his single-digit assist total doesn't do much for fantasy owners. Gurianov started the season slowly with four goals in the first 24 contests but then had a 29-game streak between Dec. 20 and Feb. 29 that featured 14 tallies. It'll be interesting to see what type of production he puts up over a larger sample size.

Gurianov scored a goal on a team-high five shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Bruins.
Gurianov rejoined the team's goal-scoring lead with his 19th tally. He's picked up five points over his last five games. The Russian is up to 28 points, 122 shots, 57 hits and a plus-5 rating through 59 contests. He won't be able to shoot 15.6 percent forever, but with 12 power-play points, the 22-year-old is capable of helping fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Gurianov scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.
The 22-year-old continues to prove himself as a sniper -- Gurianov has five goals and eight points in the last 11 games, and 18 goals and 27 points on the season through 58 contests. He showed good chemistry with Roope Hintz and Jason Dickinson in this one, and Gurianov has pushed his way onto the fantasy radar even in shallower formats.
Gurianov had two assists and two shots with a pair of hits in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Coyotes.
Gurianov drew the secondary helpers on power-play goals by Corey Perry and Radek Faksa, giving him a multi-point game for the first time since Nov. 2. The 22-year-old has 17 goals and eight assists in 55 games in his first full NHL season.
Gurianov netted a goal on three shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

Gurianov has six goals in his last nine outings, giving him 17 tallies and 23 points through 52 contests this season. He's being propelled by his 15.6 percent scoring rate -- that's probably unsustainable for the 22-year-old in the long run.

With five tallies in his last nine games, Gurianov has been on fire. His 15 goals put him in a tie with Roope Hintz and Alexander Radulov (upper body) for the team lead. Unfortunately, Gurianov has just six helpers for 21 points overall in 49 contests. The 22-year-old winger, in his first full NHL season, is still working on his defensive play and will likely continue to see bottom-six usage.
Gurianov tallied a power-play goal on his only shot of the game Tuesday in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Gurianov got the Stars on the board in the latter stages of the first period, depositing his 14th goal of the season and sixth with the man advantage. The 22-year-old has 20 points in 48 games in 2019-20, his first full NHL season. He's been a nice piece on the power play for Dallas but isn't much use to fantasy owners outside of deeper leagues.
Gurianov potted a goal in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
The Russian winger got the Stars on the board with his tally at 17:21 of the first period. Gurianov has four goals in his last seven games, although that's come with no assists. He's at 13 tallies and 19 points in 45 contests overall this year. A 13.5 percent shooting rate is likely fueling his success -- expect that number to drop eventually, but enjoy the ride for now.
