  • Jets' Kyle Connor: Shines during rookie season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/21/18) Connor garnered 31 goals, 26 assists and 11 power-play points in his rookie campaign.

    If not for the explosive campaign of the Islanders' Mathew Barzal (85 points), Connor would certainly be in contention for the Calder Trophy for outstanding rookie this season. On top of his regular-season contributions, the Michigan native also added 10 playoff points during the Jets' run to the Western Conference finals. As long as he continues to play on Winnipeg's top line with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler -- a role he has firmly cemented himself in -- the winger is quite capable of challenging for new career highs next year.

    Jets' Kyle Connor: Directly factors into scoring play in Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/17/18) Connor collected a primary assist Wednesday in a 4-2 road loss to the Golden Knights.

    The 21-year-old stormed around the cage and perfectly threaded the puck to Mark Scheifele, who was hanging around the doorstep for his record-setting 11th road goal of these playoffs. Connor is starting games in a top-six role, but he's only been averaging 16:33 of ice time in the current series so he must be particularly efficient in order to keep his fantasy owners content.

    Jets' Kyle Connor: Scores team's only goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/14/18) Connor found the twine in the third period of Game 2, but it wasn't enough as his team dropped a 3-1 decision to Vegas on Monday night.

    Connor's goal was a bit of a fluke, as Marc-Andre Fleury had made several tougher saves, but what hasn't been a fluke is his improved play over the past five games. He's now at six points in the Jets' past five contests, suggesting that he's overcome some early postseason struggles and has regained the form that made him a 30-goal scorer as a rookie. Whether he can string consecutive strong games together is now the question, as he hasn't scored in consecutive games since a three-game streak that ended in Game 2 of the Nashville series.

    Jets' Kyle Connor: Bags two apples in Game 7 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/18) Connor dished out two helpers in Thursday's 5-1 Game 7 win over the Predators.

    Both of Connor's assists came on goals by linemate Mark Scheifele, the second of which was an empty-netter. After recording just three helpers without a goal over his first nine playoff appearances, Connor's picked up the pace dramatically with two goals and three assists in his last three contests.

    Jets' Kyle Connor: Breaks out with first career postseason goals

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/18) Connor scored two goals, picked up an assist and recorded six shots on goal in a 6-2 victory over the Predators on Saturday. The Jets lead the second-round series 3-2.

    Jets coach Paul Maurice tinkered with his lines ahead of Game 5, moving Connor back to the top group with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler. The move paid huge dividends, as Connor broke out with his first playoff goals and his best performance of the postseason. Connor's goals were magnificent, but his assist might have been his biggest highlight-reel play, as he deked a defender with a pass to himself between his legs and then set up Scheifele for an early third-period goal. If Connor repeats this performance in Game 6, it doesn't appear likely this series will head back to Nashville.
