Now leads the Ahl is goalscoring with 17 in 26 games
He's been on an absolute tear
Strange numbers. 11 of 17 goals are on the powerplay. Shooting percentage over 30% (17-53).
Check out some of caser's posts above. Boy just plants his butt in front of the net on the PP
Was at the game last night, he looked very good. Big fan of his. Stood out and was causing havoc all night.
About time we call him up. Got a couple guys down there we need to get some games.
4 point night for him last night 1G 3A all on the PP
Reached the 30 goal mark
It's really not a good sign that one of the lowest scoring team in NHL isn't calling him up.
Your point still stands it's just funny
Hopefully they'll actually give him a shot not just play him 5 minutes on the fourth line with grinders.
His game is such that he needs play-makers on his line.
He is just not very good 5 vs. 5.
Give him PP time.
He still has 14 goals ES which is good for 2nd on the team, so he's been productive ES as well.
There is more.
+/- is a deceptive stat but -15 as leading goalscorer is by far the worst on the team with exception of one player.
Thats not just bad luck.
34 out of 35 players who played for the Checkers this season, have done better.
This is no coincidence and probably one of the reasons he played 2 NHL games this season.
I knew you'd say +/-
Last season, he was a +6 while scoring only 12 ES goals. There were other forwards ( Tolchinsky for example was a -10) were a minus. Yet Tolchinsky is a +2 this year. Year before that, Zykov was a +3. Without watching him play, I cannot agree with an assessment that "He's not good 5v5" just based on +/- for 1 season, particularly when he was a + player his prior two seasons.
Maybe he won't be very good 5v5, but basing it off of 1 season of +/- isn't a good measure of it.
