The most positive thing is that Hagelin has increased his goal scoring this year, not through puck-luck and a ridiculously high shooting-% that will come down any second, but through elevating his game and getting scoring chances. He is shooting at 11.1% this year compared to 10.7% last year. The difference is that he is now getting 3.3 shots per game compared to 2 last season.

TL;DR: Hagelin is currently playing like a legit 30 goal scorer and not riding puck-luck.
