  • Golden Knights' James Neal: Ends scoring drought against Ducks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/17) Neal ended a five-game pointless drought Tuesday, notching a goal and an assist in a win over the Ducks.

    Even the best goal scorers go through slumps, so it was good to see Neal get back on track Tuesday. The 30-year-old has racked up 13 goals and 21 points through 27 contests, firing 72 shots on goal in the process. The former Penguin is one of the best goal scorers in the game and can be played with confidence whenever Vegas takes to the ice.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Dials up second straight two-point game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/25/17) Neal dropped a power-play goal and an overtime assist to the detriment of the visiting Sharks on Friday.

    An alternate captain for the expansion Golden Knights, Neal is still under contract by the Penguins, even though he hasn't played for them since the 2013-14 season and spent the following three campaigns in Nashville. The power-play winger, who will be an unrestricted free agent next summer, is up to 19 points (12 goals, seven assists) to complement a plus-5 rating through 21 games. He's a gem in the fantasy world, and hopefully you've unearthed him by now.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Pots game-winner

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/23/17) Neal scored the game-winning goal Wednesday in Anaheim. He also recorded an assist and six shots in the 4-2 victory.

    With 17 points in 19 games, Neal has been fulfilling his preseason billing as one of the team's top offensive weapons coming out of the expansion draft. He's already up to 56 shots on goal -- an 82-game pace north of 240 -- while holding down the right wing slot on the top line and No. 1 power-play unit. Just be mindful of his inflated 19.6 shooting percentage, which is over seven points higher than his career mark of 12.2.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Scores in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/7/17) Neal scored the opening goal in a 4-3 shootout loss to Toronto on Monday.

    That brings him to eight for the season despite a four-game scoreless streak. Neal is an automatic roll every game as the Knights' top offensive contributor.

    Golden Knights' James Neal: Picks apart Avs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/27/17) Neal picked up two points -- a goal and an assist -- in Friday's 7-0 rout over the Avalanche in front of the home crowd.

    Someone better check the circuit on the goal lamp at T-Mobile Arena, as Neal and company were basically scoring at will in this victory. After potting six goals over the team's first four games, Neal went scoreless over the next four before Friday's effort snapped the mini-funk to give him his fourth two-point effort of the young season. Vegas is off to an incredible 8-1-0 start, so the ship has probably sailed on getting this top-line, power-play winger at a discount.
