On the plus side though, he did get a shootout goal!

As this is also in the Yakupov thread, I also decided to check up on Tobias Rieder's stats as of late and to say the least, they're not super encouraging. 20 points in 23 games puts him 54th in league scoring and on pace for about 61 points in 70 games. This is the same guy who put up 85 points in only 60 games last season. Seeing as his size is not really outstanding and his scoring has slipped, this is a bit of a setback in his development, but nonetheless I remain hopeful that he'll bounce back. Is he even eligible for the world juniors this year (if Germany plays - not sure whether they are or not)?
I think you really need to look at more than stats with a guy like Rieder.

His numbers are down but he is still playing very well in all situations. He is a very good pk'er for example and Kitchener is winning in good part because their pk has been outstanding of late.

Kitchener is one of the lower scoring teams in the OHL. Second lowest actually. But they are also 14 7 1 1.
