This season - October 7 - December 6
He has played 21 games. 3 goals 8 assists 11 points. He's -1 with 16 PIM. Zero PPG/SHG/GWG. 19 shots (15.8%)

--He's currently on a 13 game goal-less streak. Only once in those 13 games did he even score a point (3 assists v tor.).

--BUT in the first 9 games he had 3 goals, 5 assists, 8 points, 10 shots on goal. In the last of these 9 games he got hurt (vs TB) and then missed the next 2 games. His stats have taken a tumble since that game.

Last season - October 14 - December 6
He played 22 games. 3 goals 4 assists 7 points. He was -1 with 6 PIM. Zero PPG/SHG/GWG. 17 shots (17.6%)

--That includes an 11 game goal-less streak with a 10 game pointless streak in that.

He finished the last 55 games with 20 goals, 23 assists, 43 points, +11, 14 PIM, 4 PPG, 1 SHG, 2 GWG, 75 shots (26.6%).

--Only twice in that 55 game span did he go more than 3 games without scoring a goal (a 5 game streak and a 10 game streak). And only twice in that 55 game span did he go more than 2 games without a single point.

So basically he's in the same place as he was last season (even slightly better) even though it seems like his play has taken a step back from last year. The last 2 games he has 5 shots so maybe he's starting to come out of whatever funk he was in. Hopefully he can turn it around like he did last season!
