    With a quarter of the season already done, we have 11 players on pace to score 50 goals this season:

    Pastrnak
    Skinner
    Ovechkin
    Point
    Laine
    Forsberg
    Atkinson
    Landeskog
    Tavares
    MacKinnon
    Pettersson

    These three are on pace for 49 goals:

    Pavelski
    Draisaitl
    McDavid


    How many 50 goal scorers will we see this season?

    I'll say 4 players will hit 50 goals this season.

    Most guys are shooting well above (almost 10%) their career shot %. It's fair to expect some pretty significant regression for them - I would expect 1-2 max to reach 50 goals this year.

    This. It's easy to believe Ovy will get there as it's very familiar territory. The rest of that list combined only has 3 40 goal seasons and while scoring is up this year, it's still difficult to believe anymore than that will make the jump to 50.

    I think McDavid will get there. Ovechkin and Laine should as well. That's it imo.

    Since 2012 no one scored 50, except Ovechkin.

    When is he supposed to come back? I highly doubt he'll get to 50 with the games he has missed.

    McDavid and Ovi.

    A lot of maybes but I think so 2 are locks the way they're playing. I also think the more the field falls behind the more Connors going to push for it. I think we'll see him slowly ramp up the goal scoring.
