BTW, if there is a place for a third assist, it would have been given to Karlsson today. Beautiful moves on the blue line, pass to Teräväinen, to Filppula, to Moses, to goal.
His shooting percentage in the first half of last year was the basis on which I called that he'd probably keep up or even speed up his point pace. And potentially win the Norris. We all know how that turned out.

He was 1.2% shot percentage on the day Turris was traded to Ottawa. In the second half the season he scored on a pace that would have left him with about 35 goals in an 82 game season.

It also comes with the territory of being a constant shooter from long range and sometimes a SOG without a goal is productive, leading to an assist. But you can only expect it to go up.
