Every year a few players surprise or breakout depending on your perspective. Obviously several Knights players last year had career seasons. In addition, Couturier, Trocheck, Rantanen saw point production increase 1/3 or more. So exclusive of rookies, who are your top 6 for big point increases this season? I would guess: Janmark (Stars)--he has lots of skill; seems to have his health issue under control; had an excellent World Championship; and the Stars need another scorer. Hertl (Sharks)--the season a player turns 25 often sees an uptick; Karlsson is going to create more offense and Hertl might just be the main recipient. Eriksson Ek (Wild)--coming off a 16 point season it doesn't take much to get a % increase, but I think he has a shot at 40-45 points this season. Coleman (Devils)--this defensive specialist showed some ability to score as the season went on in 17-18; with more ice time something like 35-40 points is not out of the question. Schmaltz (Blackhawks)--a player coming off a 21-goal 31-assist season will be hard pressed to breakout; Schmaltz could center Kane and Saad, if the latter returns to form then 70 points for Schmaltz is conceivable. Pulock (Islanders)--a young defenseman who put up 32 points in 68 games could increase that to near 50 for a full season.
