He's also besting three first rounders in both NHL games played and AHL points, Tyler Cuma, Jake Gardiner, and Colten Teubert. Looks like Gardiner is on pace to surpass him though.
I only got halfway through the 2nd round. Most of the guys ahead of him are 0.25-0.5 PPG in the NHL and a lot barely touched the minors and were close to PPG down there.

They ranged from alright to pretty good, but come on. Look at the teams that won and/or got close. Do I need to recite names here? Those teams had STUDS on defense.
